Croton Caring provides free, round-trip transportation to medical appointments within 15 miles of Croton. This included Phelps Memorial Hospital Complex, Westchester Medical Center, Northern Westchester Medical Center and NYP-Hudson Valley Hospital. The program runs Monday through Friday for appointments between 9am and 5pm.
Starting March 1, 2023, due to the increasing demand for rides over the last month and limited numbers of drivers, we are further modifying the protocol for this program by (a) increasing the required notice from five business days to ten calendar days (no longer business days) and (b) limiting the number of rides per individual to three rides per calendar month. Please see below for our Medical Transportation Guidelines.
