Vermont Business Magazine North Country Hospital in Newport has entered into a new partnership with the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at UVM Children’s Hospital consisting of a Telemedicine Program for their Maternal Child Health Unit.
NCH said in a press release that, “This program and device will allow our pediatricians to obtain video consults in real-time with the neonatologist at UVMMC when they are looking for a neonatal consult or are preparing to transfer a critically ill newborn to the NICU.
“This opportunity will increase the quality of our neonatal care even further and greatly benefit our youngest patients.
“Over the years the North Country Hospital team has formed a close working relationship with the University of Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) and that relationship has allowed us to be the first hospital outside their network to introduce NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Telemedicine.
“We are grateful to UVM for this opportunity and for providing the NICU Telemedicine cart at no charge.”
