CareVan Medical Transportation

At Good Shepherd, we don’t want transportation issues to get in the way of quality health care.

The CareVan travels to Hermiston, Echo, Stanfield, Umatilla, Irrigon, and Boardman. This encompasses the entire Good Shepherd service area. It is an Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant service provider. Rides are provided to community members to any Good Shepherd Health Care System affiliated medical or service provider with offices in Hermiston. Rides operate from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Reservations can be made by calling 541.667.3888. Calls should be made with as much advanced notice as possible as time slots are limited and are filled on a first come first serve basis. Care Van is a two van program and strives to accommodate requests; however, there may be occasions when the times sought by the patient cannot be accommodated.

Rides are complimentary however; the program welcomes any contributions that friends of CareVan Medical Transportation Services would like to make. Donation envelopes are available in each CareVan for riders. Along with major grants and this added local support, CareVan has continued to grow and serve our community with trustworthy friendly transportation for the last decade. It has proven to be a most beneficial asset.
