Think of us as your personal healthcare van. We go anywhere, anytime.
JaxCare has specially designed vans for the most secure and safe transportation for people in wheelchairs. No lifts or hydraulics, just an easy comfortable ramp into our specially designed van. Seven-point tie down with comfortable positioning in your private personal ride.
Our ramp limit is 34 inches outside to outside. If needed, we do have wide wheelchairs that can work and can transfer you to.
Since we are non-medical, we are not providing medical advice to any facility or hospital that we are transporting to. This means that as non-medical provider we can offer service at a reduced rate compared to Medical Ambulance. It also means that since we are not communicating to a hospital, we are not providing vitals or are administering aid to a patient. Any type of emergency transport that requires any of the above should require a licensed ambulance with medical personnel in attendance.
Yes. Our vans are designed to accommodate stretcher and wheelchair. Stretcher chairs generally fall into those dynamics. Some chairs may not, keep in mind the ramp width is 34 inches which is our only limitation.
Yes. And, we can transfer you from a hospital directly to a nursing home or to your home, too – in a wheelchair, stretcher or walker?
Ambulatory refers to a patient who is walking with assistance. For instance, a patient may need a cane or walker for balance.
