SVMC, Dartmouth team up on telemedicine services for pediatric cardiology patients

Lebanon-N.H.-based Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is partnering with Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington to help expand care for pediatric cardiology and urology patients through telemedicine, Vermont Biz reports.

Dartmouth providers will connect with SVMC clinicians through live, two-way audio and video to help treat SVMC patients.

"Children with conditions that affect their hearts or urinary systems sometimes have to spend a lot more time than their peers traveling to medical appointments," SVMC Pediatrics Medical Director Meghan Gunn, MD, told the publication. "We are excited to offer this level of specialized care conveniently, and we believe this will help to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients and their families."

SVMC, a 99-bed medical center, is part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care, which comprises 25 primary and specialty care practices.
