Through a number of partnerships and programs, this chapter aims to change lives and the community to create lasting change in the River Region.

One program that has helped countless people in this region is the IMPACT River Region. IMPACT represents, Improving Performance Across Care Transitions.

How IMPACT Plays a Vital Role in the River Region

With many residents unable to obtain their own transportation, there is a clear need in the community to assist with transporting people – whether someone is physically unable to drive due to a health condition or they require additional assistance, this program offers a wide range of transportation options.

A few examples include specific transportation for: 

  • Senior Citizens
  • Medicaid & Non-Medicaid recipients
  • Non-Emergency
  • Job Seekers

In addition, some transportation may cost a few dollars while other options might be free of charge. View a full list of transportation options here.

How IMPACT Helps Rehab Select Patients

Not only do we support this program for its many benefits to the community, our facilities also find this program incredibly helpful.

For those that need assistance in coming to physical therapy and perhaps cannot drive, this program is invaluable. This is ideal for those who are staying at one of our facilities either for short term or long term rehab and need transportation for doctor appointments, the pharmacy, and more.
