Transportation and the Role of Hospitals

The AHA webinar on “Transportation and the Role of Hospitals,” is part of the social determinants of health series. Transportation is a significant factor in building and sustaining healthy communities. It determines how easily resources and services, including health care, can be accessed. With 3.6 million people in the U.S. facing difficulty obtaining medical care due to transportation, many hospitals and health systems are developing resources to improve transportation in their communities. Learn how a rural and an urban hospital, Taylor Regional Hospital in Kentucky and Denver Health Medical Center, established programs and partnerships to advance transportation services.
