Crossroads Hospital embraces & improves Telehealth in response to COVID pandemic

MT. VERNON, IL — A positive that has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic is the surge of telehealth medicine. Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services as well as information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance patient and clinician contact.

Crossroads Community Hospital in Mt. Vernon has embraced telehealth and worked to help their patients grow comfortable with seeking care from home instead of in a doctor’s office or hospital.

Nurse Practitioner Ashley Hofer says these services should’ve been implemented nationwide a long-time ago but she’s glad they’re available to her patients now.

You can book a telehealth appointment at crossroads-anytime-dot-com or call 618-244-5500.
