Support our Critical Care Air Transport Program

At Children’s Hospital, our first priority is to save the lives of critically ill children in the safest manner possible. Offering the highest level of pediatric care available for infants and children across Louisiana, having critical care air transport capabilities is vital in our service to children.

Since our helicopter, Abby, was placed into service, she has helped save the lives over 2,700 children from across our state and region.

Today, Abby stands ready, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Join us in support of this vital service for the children of Louisiana and beyond.
