Through the new partnership, pediatricians at Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb, Ill., and Northwestern Medicine Valley West Hospital in Sandwich, Ill., can schedule virtual consults with Lurie Children's neonatologists at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Ill.

Physicians at the Kishwaukee and Valley West emergency departments will also soon be able to virtually connect with Lurie Children's pediatric emergency medicine physicians to assist with care and perform consultations, according to the Oct. 27 news release.

During the telemedicine consults, bot the pediatric patient and their parents can interact with the physician and have the option of scheduling specialty follow-up appointments via telemedicine as well.
