A Supportive Push
Working as a transporter at HCMC, Bilal Flomer safely gets patients where they need to go for tests, procedures, and appointments. Though he may be taking them from one patient care area to another, Bilal doesn't think of the short time he spends with patients as "in-between." Rather, he says, transport is a continuation of their care, with the same potential for healing. As they pass through the hallways of HCMC together, Bilal and his patients talk openly and honestly, and through conversation comes comfort and relief. "I am here for them," says Bilal, "to listen with understanding and compassion and to give them encouragement."
