Patients & Visitors

We are working with Follow My Health to provide a NEW texting (mobile experience) for our patients after a clinic visit or a discharge from the hospital.

Patients discharged from a hospital stay or visit in the ER will receive texts for:

  • Welcome message (not for ER)
  • 24 hr follow up
  • Post Care summaries

A transport is considered non-emergency if a patient is moving to or from a health facility, or between health facilities, for medically necessary reasons that are not a direct result of a sudden or unexpected deterioration in the patient’s condition, and which do not require immediate management of life, limb or function-threatening conditions. This includes patients being discharged from the hospital but unable to use conventional means of transportation, or those requiring specialized diagnostic and treatment facilities available only at specific hospitals.

DCH EMS can provide this service for: doctor's appointments, dialysis, therapy, discharges, etc. between the hours of 7 am to 6 pm, Monday - Friday.

You must schedule by calling 812-254-9324 or fax to 812-254-2953 (scheduling office is open Monday - Friday from 8 am to 5:30 pm).

Services will be billed to the patient's insurance.
