Help provide vital transportation for healthcare services

The pandemic has further increased the burden on impoverished rural residents getting vital healthcare services that they so badly need. With limited public transportation options, the TCMH Medivan meets the need by helping area community members who otherwise would not have the means or resources to get to their appointments.

Project Overview

OUR WORK
The Texas County Memorial Hospital (TCMH) Medivan made over 900 trips last year and covered 33,000 miles in the process of getting community members to and from important healthcare appointments.  These medical services could be lifesaving or life altering including dialysis, cardiac rehab, pulmonary rehab, physical therapy, or important clinic visits to possibly help stem worsening health conditions an avoid emergency department visit.

THE NEED
In trying to help area residents especially the elderly or low income, the wheelchair accessible vans play an important role in providing a door to door transportation option for these community members.  The Medivan service works hard to meet the critical need by offering low-cost fares.  In many cases, the impoverished may still not have the means to cover the costs.  Still yet, TCMH knows how important it is that residents get the healthcare services that they so desperately need and attempts to find a way to help with the transportation no matter what the circumstances may be.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
TCMH is a small, independent rural hospital with limited resources.  Given that, TCMH seeks grant funds and possible donations to try and help sustain the service.  Your donation can help partially cover the costs for transporting individuals that cannot pay or do not have the means otherwise to get to badly needed healthcare appointments.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Please consider making a donation today to help TCMH continue providing this important community service! 

***SPECIAL NOTE: For the 2021 tax year, people who take the standard deduction can deduct up to $300 of cash donations to charity. (Please consult with your own tax advisor before making a gift.)  You can help us while helping your own potential tax liability.  A win-win situation!
