When you need acute medical care, you dial 911, but what do you do when you need to get to doctor and dental appointments, dialysis or chemotherapy appointments, or even go in for outpatient surgery? First response medical transport providers are not the answer, but working with a trustworthy non-emergency medical transport company can get you to your destination. Safe, dependable, and affordable, Amera is a medical coordination and transportation company based in Houston that meets the needs of seniors and others who need regular care.
The destination for many of our clients is Memorial Hermann, the largest not-for-profit health system in Southeast Texas. Known for its comprehensive health care, it is the place to go for cancer, heart, neurological, and orthopedic problems.
The Downside Of Driving To The Doctor
Memorial Hermann is comprised of 13 hospitals, two medical schools, and numerous specialty facilities. More than 5,500 affiliated physicians practice at the hospital and may have offices nearby. Even if you drive and are feeling well enough to do so, getting to the right place for your medical appointments is more complicated than just driving there. Once you arrive, you must either park far away from your building and then have to take a shuttle bus to get where you need to be, while still paying high parking fees. If you are elderly, disabled, or have mobility problems, the extra stress and wear-and-tear on your body involved in this process can be difficult or even impossible to navigate.
This is particularly true in the Houston area, where our excellent medical facilities are part of a huge medical community. If you need to see a doctor at Memorial Hermann, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Baylor College of Medicine, or other location within the Texas Medical Center complex, there are valet, parking garage, and surface parking options, but the nearer you are to your destination, the more you pay. If you can barely get around by yourself, none of these options work.
