Overview

Self-reported by organization

PHNCF provides free rides as a vital link between elderly and disadvantaged patients and their primary care providers.  We are committed to enhancing wellness by increasing access to early health care, early diagnostic intervention, and the prevention of medical complications arising from delayed care.  As a direct result, our neighbors and communities are healthier.  Two years ago, PHNCF was transporting 12 patients/day 2 days/week.  Today, we are averaging 25 transports/day 5 days/week.  Our door-to-door service is provided free of charge by courteous and caring drivers in modern mini-vans, and supported through direct communication with patients and providers.

Principal Officer

Mr. Mark A. Tallarico

BIO

Previous twelve years experence in non-profit marketing and management, including six years with the Greater Pittsburgh Convention and Visitors Bureau (Visit Pittsburgh) and six years as Executive Director of the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency and Chairman of Pittsburgh and Its Countryside consortium.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"It's unimaginable that a mother must fear for her child's health simply because she can't find a reliable ride to the doctor.  Or that a diabetic might face an amputation because he was unable to get simple wound care earlier.  But stories like this are real, and  can make a real difference in the ending.  Most patients need rides of less than 4 miles each way.  That's 8 miles roundtrip or less than $5 by IRS Mileage Reimbursement Rates.  How good will it feel on the day you decide to skip an extra tall latte for the sake of being the person who got someone to the medical care they needed on time?  Please, Provide the Ride."
