Whether bringing a new patient up to the operating room or ensuring a post-surgery patient gets to their follow-up appointment, Sunnybrook porters work hard to get patients to the right place at the right time.
It’s a role that requires more than a sense of direction and a good pair of shoes.
Transport staff often provide a sympathetic ear and a large measure of comfort for patients. They can be a source of reassurance in an unfamiliar environment.
Even if patients are anxious about the destination, Sunnybrook’s Patient Transport Team is there to make the journey as pleasant as possible.
