Associated program

Lack of transportation is a major barrier keeping people of limited means from getting health care. Our associated projects in Colorado and Philadelphia focus on providing transportation to appointments so disadvantaged patients can get the care they need. The projects also may help with scheduling and reminders to make sure nobody misses a checkup by mistake.

Lack of access to reliable transportation is one of the most pervasive barriers to health care for children in the United States, resulting in missed opportunities for routine well-child care, increased incidence of untreated chronic illnesses, increased use of emergency rooms for non-emergency care, and an increase in preventable hospitalizations.  The local program in Colorado offers patients living in three counties a ride to follow-up and special medical and dental apppointments if they do not have their own transportation to get them there. - See more at: http://www.childrenshealthfund.org/blog/photo-friday-happiest-paint-job-colorado#sthash.s2KgGPA7.dpuf
