Memorial Hospital Sponsors Carroll County RSVP

February 21, 2019

NORTH CONWAY, NH – Memorial Hospital staff recently met with Carroll County Retired Senior and Volunteer Program (RSVP) board members and volunteers to renew its sponsorship support of RSVP’s volunteer medical transportation and other driver programs. Carroll County RSVP has been providing medical and other transportation for seniors, veterans and disabled ambulatory clients in Carroll County for over 40 years, according to Megan Croce, Transportation & Marketing Coordinator for Carroll County RSVP.

“The number of clients has increased over the past few years but we have been able to also grow the number of volunteer drivers,” says Megan. “That said, there is always room for more volunteers and financial support of this important program.”

“We are happy to support RSVP and their volunteer drivers, says Sue Ruka, RN, PhD, Memorial Hospital’s Director of Population Health. “The role that the RSVP transportation program provides is huge in our community. Program volunteers do much more than provide transportation to and from appointments. They take our patients for long distances to see specialists; they frequently stay with patients while they are in the waiting room; and they provide socialization and support to many people with medical needs who would otherwise be isolated. It is compassionate care for people exemplified.”

Director of Carroll County RSVP, Mary Carey Seavey, and RSVP Advisor Council Chair, John Colbath, both thanked Memorial Hospital for sponsorship of the medical transportation program. For more information on how to access medical transportation services, to become a volunteer driver or make a donation, call RSVP at 603-356-9331.
