PHH and North Central Announce New Transportation Opportunity for Patients’ Healthcare Needs

  • Date: 03/02/2021

Recently, the North Central Regional Planning & Development Commission received funding to help ease the burdens of access to transportation for the people of north central and western Pennsylvania.

After discussion with Penn Highlands Healthcare, North Central and Penn Highlands Healthcare collaborated to implement a pilot program to offer low-cost transportation to medical appointments.

An agreement has been made with a national organization, QRyde, to provide and coordinate these transportation services with other regional partners[Ma1] .

As a part of this pilot, QRyde is now offering ride options for varying needs and price points in an attempt to ease transport challenges. However, in an effort to ensure patient rides are accessible for all patients, QRyde themselves have developed a confidential financial review process to determine if patients are eligible for reduced ride charges.
