Bariatric Transport: Comfort & Safety, Every Single Ride

Dec 19, 2023

In the ever-evolving landscape of patient care, the role of a hospital’s discharge planners and case managers is indispensable. These professionals oversee the critical transition of patients from hospital care to home or other medical facilities. For bariatric patients, this transition requires an additional layer of care, expertise, and understanding. Recognizing this unique need, Saguaro Medical Transport presents its specialized bariatric transport services.
