Senior Transportation

It’s important that you’re able to receive the care you need, when you need it. That’s why West Suburban Medical Center offers Senior Transportation. Our wheelchair-accessible transportation is offered for patients within designated borders who have no other means of transportation to West Suburban or our satellite locations for tests, treatments, or office appointments.
