The surgical critical care physician team includes board-certified surgical intensivists, mid-level residents and interns and a critical care fellow.
The team is dedicated to ensuring timely referrals and consultations for all high-risk surgical/trauma patients.
Critically ill patients require the highest level of monitoring and the most advanced medical equipment.
After a traumatic injury or life-threatening illness or condition, most patients are placed in a critical care or intensive care unit until they are well enough to be moved to a step-down unit.
They are ready to diagnose and begin care for emergency conditions. We are fortunate in eastern North Carolina to have quick access to a Level I Adult Trauma Center and a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.
A dedicated children's hospital transport team will provide the mobile services for sick infants and children throughout eastern North Carolina.Support for East Care is provided by nationally certified communications specialists, credentialed as EMTs or Paramedics.The communications center, based at Vidant Medical Center, receives transport request calls, dispatches transport teams, maintains radio contact throughout the transport, and coordinates incoming EMS patients to the hospital.Both air and ground transport programs serve all types of critical patients including trauma, cardiac, medical, high-risk obstetrics, burns, pediatric and more.Each aircraft has a range of 150 miles from its regional base and can fly directly to the scene of an accident or disaster. The East Care ground fleet consists of regionally based vehicles which can rapidly move patients from community hospitals to area referral centers.
