Telemedicine Introduced for Local Patients
St. Vincent Hospital and Centura Health, the region’s health care leader, have collaborated to provide patients in St. Vincent Hospital’s emergency room who present with stroke-like symptoms greater convenience to health care services and expertise through Centura Health’s telemedicine program, telestroke. Through this collaboration, St. Vincent Hospital and Centura Health are meeting the increasing need of consumers in Leadville to have greater access to services locally for delivery of high-value stroke care.
“Adding telestroke to our services at St. Vincent Hospital is a huge step forward as we fulfill our mission to provide access to quality health care for our patients,” commented Joyce Beck, CEO, St. Vincent Hospital. “It is our privilege to offer this service in conjunction with Centura Health. Together we can make a difference for our patients.”
St. Vincent Hospital signed an affiliation agreement with Centura Health in July 2013 to expand the system of care for St. Vincent Hospital and provide specific resources and services that support development of shared programs that can help expand clinical services available to consumers in their local community. Through this agreement, Centura Health is able to extend its telehealth program to St. Vincent Hospital. Based on population health needs, St. Vincent Hospital is implementing telestroke to provide additional resources in the delivery of stroke care to residents and optimizing the value of health care delivered in the community in collaboration with Centura Health.
