Arizona Hospital Transportation Concerns During the COVID-19 Pandemic

February 15 2021

Book Quality Non-Emergency Medical Transportation for Hospital Visits

With how risky the world has become due to the pandemic, it’s important for the most vulnerable in society to stay safe and protected. Hospital visits often leave increased opportunities for exposure, so choosing reliable, fully sanitized transportation is important.

Transportation to Hospitals

There is a lack of access to trusted medical transportation, especially for those utilizing mobility devices such as wheelchairs or stretchers. Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) differs from ambulance or emergency transportation, providing patients a more affordable option when they need to get to their appointments. While many usually rely on friends and family for transportation, the current health crisis may have impacted their availability, prompting patients to look for other options.
