IN AN EMERGENCY DIAL 9-1-1
If you need an ambulance for routine transport call 706.278.9111
Calling an ambulance can be the difference between life and death. The people who take your call are trained to help you and will direct you to the appropriate resources.

Specialty Care Transport
Hamilton’s Neonatal Transport Team reaches out to surrounding counties and will travel via a Specialty Mobile Medical Unit to other hospitals to stabilize and transport babies in need of advanced care provided by Hamilton’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
The members of the transport team are specially trained neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses and respiratory therapists, who are capable of offering intensive monitoring and care to babies born too small or too ill. As soon as the team arrives at Hamilton’s NICU with your baby, a member of the team will call you to provide an update on your baby’s condition.
