Wheels for Wellness

Mission Statement

  • To successfully build, promote, and provide a quality service for the patients of Vancouver Island who require transportation to their medical appointments.
  • To provide safe, friendly on time service to appointments from your home.
  • To provide "Door to Door" service.
  • We believe that with the increasing aging population in remote areas, this service will be of vital importance to residents.

Programs Offered

  • The society picks patients up at their home and takes them to and from any out of town medical appointment that exceeds 60 km (one way) from a Vancouver Island point of departure. Patients who live in Tahsis, Zeballos, or any other off main road community will be given a designated pickup and drop-off spot by the dispatcher.
  • Wheels for Wellness requires advanced notice in order to book a driver and vehicle. Two weeks is normal, but short notice may be attainable in most circumstances.

Populations Served

  • Vancouver Island patients heading to medical appointments anywhere that exceed 75 km (one way) from the point of departure.
  • Physically handicapped patients need to provide notice well in advance to ensure an adequate vehicle.
