This annual celebration honors volunteers and donors who support the Foundation.
Each year, 4,500 patients use Phillips Eye Institute’s Transportation Service to get to Phillips Eye Institute. Without this service, patients may choose to put off necessary appointments or procedures. That is why the Foundation supports the ongoing efforts of this program. We want to ensure there are no barriers for patients to get the care they need when they need it.
In 2009, drivers traveled 95,000 miles while assisting patients in this way. The Foundation is proud to support this service and make sure it is offered at no additional cost to patients who need it.
Patients who depend on the Transportation Service indicate that it contributes greatly to their overall experience at Phillips Eye Institute:
"The van service was exceptionally excellent. The drivers were prompt, courteous, personable and kind to their passengers. I can't say enough good things about your van service. We were really impressed."
"I used your van service; I thought it was very good. This helped me very much and the driver was excellent."
