Our mission is to ensure that people have access to reliable and safe transportation to medical appointments, thereby improving their overall healthcare experience.
A way to address this problem is to find safe, reliable, and equitable Non-Emergency Medical Transportation or NEMT. These rides cater to your specific medical transportation needs without having to get an ambulance.
Phoenix is known for accessible and ADA-compliant attractions and accommodations. But with the high demand and other contributory factors, it can sometimes be tough to get to doctor’s appointments and other medical transportation needs.
The disabled community needs handicap accessible ride services when a taxi cannot cater to their manual/motorized wheelchairs or stretchers. The freedom to go anywhere you please, whenever you please is one that is greatly appreciated by those that are utilizing assistive mobility devices and cannot drive themselves.
Unlike conventional medical transportation, you can use NEMT for various non-emergency situations such as doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, treatments, and many other needs. You can even utilize it for a trip to the grocery store, leisure activities, and visiting family and friends!
Some medical conditions can render passengers unable for air travel, and this can severely affect their quality of life, especially when they need periodic medical checkups that require long-distance travel.
Nowadays, there are a variety of transportation options specifically catered to seniors. HealthLift offers them the right balance of convenience, accessibility, and provides them with professional and personal solutions for their special needs.
NEMT isn’t just reserved for going to and from medical appointments. In fact, it’s a great way to get out in the summer and do something fun with seniors or your loved ones with accessibility needs. From interactive museums to stunning vineyards, HealthLift NEMT of Arizona can take you to where all the excitement is in Tucson.
According to the Center on Disability, Arizona’s population of people with disabilities is 12.6%, while Phoenix has 10.2% and Tucson with 15.0%. While these numbers look small, they represent a whole demographic of people that need special assistance especially when it comes to accessible transportation.
Traveling doesn’t have to be as difficult as it is for people with medical conditions. That’s why HealthLift has services that can take passengers out of state to get them to their specialists or just to see family and friends.
