Founder Erica Hemphill, a diabetic and double amputee, was frustrated by her inability to get to medical appointments due to a lack of proper transportation.
MedHaul was founded in 2017. A Certified B Company, MedHaul enables healthcare providers to find and schedule transportation to care destinations for patients who have special in-transit support needs, as well as those who can travel independently.
Individuals don’t call for rides, but rather, the patient’s healthcare provider will book the appointment. While the company’s current outreach is for Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, northern Mississippi, and eastern Arkansas, they hope to expand to other areas of Tennessee and perhaps even other states.
For many people, including the elderly and low-income patients, MedHaul has been extremely helpful.
In the first two years of operation, MedHaul assisted with 9,000 rides.
Hemphill is among some of the biggest tech innovators when it comes to improving the lives of others in the community.
MedHaul maintains a corporate office in Memphis, Tennessee.
