The Kootenai Health patient transport program was made possible by the generous community-minded supporters of the 1995 Kootenai Health Foundation Festival of Trees.
That event allowed the purchase of the program’s first vehicles. In 2002, the Kootenai Health Auxiliary added a new wheelchair equipped van to the fleet. The day-to-day program costs are covered by Kootenai Health.
How can I get a ride?
To schedule a ride, call (208) 625-5030 Monday through Friday. Transportation Services needs at least notice 24 hours prior to your scheduled ride time. Rides are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis so it is recommended you schedule a ride as far in advance as possible. When you call, a dispatcher will ask for your address, appointment information and if you need any other special arrangements, such as wheelchair accommodations.
Transportation Services offers rides to the three northern hospitals and clinics.
