Telehealth and Global Medicine
When the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, our hospital pivoted to telehealth. Generous donor support helped make this possible.
Virtual visits jumped from 77 in February 2020 to 2,000+ per month, including home visits in specialties such as cardiology and endocrinology. Wellness visits and art therapy continue via videoconference. Our robotic telemedicine unit, Dr. Bear Bot, delivers specialists across the hospital and around the country to patient bedsides.
