Hello to a new hospitalist program beginning at Hutchinson Health. There’s a possibility you may receive inpatient care, from a doctor located off-site, starting this month. This telemedicine program delivers the care you need via a cart. A nurse will be in the room with you during the visit. This allows the best possible care to be delivered to you, as conveniently as possible. Hutchinson Health is excited to be one of the facilities implementing this technology. HealthPartners has been using Telemedicine at four other sites for the past year, with great success. Hutchinson Health will be site number five.
The Hospitalists will be covering during the hours of 6 pm to 7:30 am, a few times a month. That way if you are admitted to the hospital your treatment plan can begin right away.
