Pediatrix Neonatology of San Antonio has established a Neonatal Outreach Program to serve physicians in the South Texas region. Whether you are an obstetrician, pediatrician, family medicine physician or local emergency room provider, our goal is to provide a direct connection to our neonatologists for the purpose of improving overall neonatal outcomes. The Neonatal Outreach Program aims to optimize pre-transport stabilization if maternal transport is not possible. Through educational lectures, quality improvement activities and open communication, our objective is to promote identification of high-risk neonates for prompt referral and transport. Neonatal education topics include: 

  • Neonatal resuscitation program/S.T.A.B.L.E. 
  • Simulation training 
  • Whole body cooling 
  • Congenital heart defects 
  • Edge of viability  

Transport Teams

Our neonatal transport teams serve as a first link to referring staff, facilities and families 24/7 for inter-facility transports throughout South Texas. In addition, the teams are available for physician consults to assist in patient management. Our practice is committed to communicating patient updates and facilitating transfers back to birth hospitals so patients may receive care in their own community prior to being discharged home. 

If you are a clinician and would like additional information on our transport program and/or related outreach education, contact any of the locations listed below.
