Westchester Medical Center Health Network Expands Telemedicine Program

Posted By: Advancing Care

Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth) recently expanded its telemedicine program to include teletrauma services at HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus in Kingston and Margaretville Hospital in Margaretville, bringing the immediate care that traumatic injuries require to communities with limited access to trauma care. 

Through the Teletrauma Program, an Emergency Department physician in Kingston or Margaretville can initiate a video connection with the trauma team at Westchester Medical Center, the flagship of WMCHealth, and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of WMCHealth. This allows the specialist to see the patient and discuss the patient’s needs with the Emergency Department physician.
