The California Perinatal Transport Systems (CPeTS) provides collection and analysis of perinatal and neonatal transport data for regional planning, outreach program development, and outcome analysis.

The California Perinatal Transport System can assist health care professionals in the REFERRAL of high-risk pregnant women and newborn infants. An updated bed availability status is obtained daily from regional CCS approved neonatal intensive care units. There are many NICUs participating in this daily survey that includes an array of County, for-profit, non-profit, University affiliated, and HMO owned facilities. This information is being made available via this website.
