Medi-Bus Patient Transportation
For more than 40 years, Methodist Jennie Edmundson has offered a lift to the people who need it most. Thanks to the Medi-Bus, rides to and from the hospital are available free of charge to patients unable to take a car or public transportation due to physical or financial limitations. This service allows qualifying patients to maintain their independence while complying with doctor recommendations.
Equipped with a wheelchair lift and driven by current or retired members of the Council Bluffs Fire Department, the Medi-Bus provides more than 3,000 rides annually. Every Methodist Jennie Edmundson outpatient hospital service is eligible. The Medi-Bus service is not designed for doctors office visits.
Medi-Bus service runs within the Council Bluffs city limits Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. but is not available when the Council Bluffs Schools are closed due to inclement weather.
To see if a patient qualifies for the Medi-Bus service or to schedule a ride, call (712) 396-6025.
