MS Gulf Coast — On June 15, Singing River Health System Patient Transportation will participate in Mississippi Community Transportation Awareness Day, a special event that highlights the importance of transportation services. The city mayors of Gautier, Pascagoula, and Ocean Springs signed proclamations on June 6 proclaiming June 15 as Mississippi Transportation Awareness Day.
Singing River’s Patient Transportation program provides free medical transportation to the residents of Jackson County. With a fleet of 10 ADA-accessible vehicles, the transportation services primarily serve the needs of the elderly and disabled. However, based on availability, additional services are also available for the general public.
To mark this occasion, the Singing River Patient Transportation team will distribute goodie bags to all patients riding the bus on June 15. Singing River CEO, Tiffany Murdock, along with local mayors, have been invited to ride the bus at 9 a.m. on June 15. They will have the opportunity to meet and greet patients at Singing River Pascagoula Hospital and show their appreciation to the Singing River Patient Transportation staff.
“I recognize the critical role transportation plays in ensuring the well-being of our patients,” said Tiffany Murdock, CEO of Singing River Health System. “Many patients face numerous challenges in accessing healthcare, and transportation should never be a barrier to receiving the medical attention they need. By offering seamless transportation solutions, we are not only improving access to healthcare but also enhancing the overall patient experience.”
