The Friends' Van provides transportation to individuals for medical, dental and other personal appointments. The van service is totally supported by the Friends of St. Joseph's Foundation and is free to riders, although donations are accepted.
The service area encompasses all cities within a 20-mile radius of Highland. This includes Highland, Breese, Grantfork, Alhambra, Pocahontas, St. Jacob, Marine, Pierron, Aviston, Trenton and Troy.
Medical appointments are a priority and include visits to physicians, dentist offices, chiropractors, pharmacies and to our hospital. We also transport patients to their residence or nursing home when they are discharged from HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital. Transportation for personal requests and appointments is also available including shopping, nursing home visits and much more.
To make an appointment for the use of the Friends' Van - whether it's for yourself or an elderly family member - please call (618) 651-2788.
