Medical Transportation

To best serve the needs of our community, we offer non-emergency transportation for those needing assistance moving about but don't require direct medical care.  Services include ambulette, wheelchair, and stretcher van transportation to the Rochester, NY and surrounding area.

Ambulette service is available for those who utilize an assistive device, such as a walker or cane, but who are otherwise able to walk on their own

Wheelchair service is available for those who utilize manual ("standard") or powered wheelchairs. Our vehicles come equipped with wheelchairs, or patients may use their own chairs, so long as they fit our vehicle ramps
Due to safety regulations, patients will not be transported on electric scooters. We can transport these patients, but they will need to be transferred to a wheelchair for the trip.

Stretcher van service is available for those who are bed-confined and/or need to remain flat during transport. These patients must be medically stable and not require any direct medical care during transport.

PLEASE NOTE: Patients requiring supplemental oxygen during non-emergency medical transportation must have their own portable tank and be able to manage it during transport. Patients requiring assistance with oxygen administration and/or do not have their own portable tank require ambulance transportation.
