NH Connections Continues to Grow

Northern Health Connections is marking its second anniversary by celebrating its first single-month ridership total of more than 1,000 passengers in November 2008, bringing to more than 16,000 the number of passengers who have taken advantage of the medical travel service.

 

NH Connections is open to anyone who needs to travel to an out-of-town medical appointment, regardless of their age or income. NH Connections offers 15 routes connecting communities across Northern British Columbia, along with service to Vancouver. The province’s Northeast benefits from NH Connections service to Grande Prairie Alberta, while the Robson Valley enjoys a weekly route to Kamloops.

As the Northern Health Connections service moves into its third full year of operations, Northern Health is renewing marketing efforts to encourage Northern BC residents to choose NH Connections when they need to travel for specialized health services that they can’t receive locally. NH is also working on a number of enhancements to the program that will be announced in the coming months.

More information is available through the NH Connections booking line at 1-888-647-4997 or on-line at www.northernhealth.ca/nhconnections. Northern Health has also reached agreements for medical rates at several hotels and inns across BC and Alberta, which are listed on the NH Connections website.
