Transportation After Surgery
When a patient is discharged from a hospital or facility, they often need a little extra help to get back home. Whether it is post-surgery or recovery, or transitioning to in-home nursing care, Friends of the Family can get you home pain and worry free.
Friends of the Family hospital discharge transportation service provides same-day, door-to-door transportation to individuals who have a health or disability condition that might prevent their ability to use standard transportation or those who lack other accommodations for transportation following discharge from the hospital. This service also helps riders whose mobility needs impair their ability to travel following a hospital stay or outpatient procedure.
