Transport plans may change for a variety of reasons such as weather, aircraft availability and ground transport
In addition, similar to an Emergency Department, Ornge must prioritize transports according to urgency. The
Operations Control Centre considers the medical condition of each patient as well as other transport-related
needs. As part of this process, a Transport Medicine Physician assesses each patient’s the urgency and
level of care, and patients are triaged on this basis.
The Operations Control Centre will apprise your care provider of any changes/delays and provide expected timelines.
