Sebasticook Valley Health (SVH) would like to announce that Plum Creek Foundation has awarded the hospital’s Transportation Services Program $2,000 to assist in purchasing a new van to transport patients within the service area to and from appointment at SVH facilities.
“Transportation is essential to those who need to receive healthcare in rural communities” says Terri Vieira, president and CEO, Sebasticook Valley Health and senior vice president, EMHS. “SVH responded to this identified need by forming the Sebasticook Transportation Services in 2006, to provide free, unlimited transport to our patients.”

Mark Doty, community affairs manager at Plum Creek remarked, “Plum Creek understands the value of building partnerships with the communities where we live and work. We are very pleased to be part of this valuable service to Sebasticook Valley Health patients.”
SVH would like to recognize Plum Creek Foundation’s generous contribution to the Transportation Services and to others in the surrounding communities whose donations positively affect the quality of life of our patients. Transportation Services also make it possible for all SVH patients to receive timely medical service while reducing the percentage of appointment cancellations and no-shows, ultimately reducing the cost of healthcare.
