Why These Programs & Services?

  • Have you ever been to the emergency unit of the hospital where you did not have time to search for a parking spot and all you wanted to do was to get out of your vehicle and race to triage with your sick person (child or an elderly) without worrying about finding a parking stall, parking ticket, etc?
  • Do you frequent the hospital (emergency unit) with your loved one where parking becomes a worry or an added budget expense to your already tight budget?
  • Do you have a terminally sick person (child or an elderly) in your family who requires ongoing emergency visits for acute care?
  • Have you or your loved one ever been discharged from the hospital emergency at the odd time/hour when you needed transportation to go home?
  • Have you ever taken a cab to the hospital emergency when you realized you did not have your purse/wallet with you to pay for the fare or did not have money to pay for the fare?
  • What if you drove in to the emergency and there’s no parking spot close to the emergency unit for you to park and take your sick child or elderly person in to receive treatment?
  • Have you arrived at the emergency during bad weather conditions when you needed extra hand with parking or lifting luggage?
