PHN Charitable Foundation, Sharon Regional Health System team up for patient transportation


The Herald

SHARON — The Primary Health Network Charitable Foundation and Sharon Regional Health System have formed a partnership to provide transportation assistance for patients who need to use Sharon Regional services but do not have access to transportation. The new program began Sept. 3.    

In 2012 the PHN Charitable Foundation founded CF Transportation Solutions, a company modeled after its highly successful program Provide the Ride. The Provide the Ride program is a free transportation service offered to Primary Health Network patients with no other means of transportation. Through CF Transportation Solutions, the PHN Charitable Foundation is now permitted to offer this service to other health care organizations and their consumers.

Sharon Regional will now be able to offer its patients, through the assistance of CF Transportation Solutions, free transportation for services at these Sharon Regional locations:

-- Hubbard Diagnostic and Specialty Center

-- Hermitage Diagnostic and Imaging Center

-- Hospital Outpatient Tests and Procedures

 Behavioral Health Services Outpatient Visits

 

If you are a Sharon Regional Health System patient and would like more information on this service, visit any of the locations listed above or call 724-983-5518 or 800-346-7997. All requests for transportation assistance must be made through a Sharon Regional representative.
