Shriners Hospitals for Children (SHC) has a telehealth option on the Newton Medical Center campus. This partnership brings about an opportunity for patients to connect virtually with their SHC physicians who specialize in orthopedics and spine conditions.
Families will be able to save money on travel expenses by visiting the telemedicine location in Newton, rather than drive to St. Louis, Missouri for appointments. This technology allows SHC a way to see patients remotely, especially for follow-up visits after surgery. It also improves the organization’s ability to collaborate with local physicians and coordinate care to patients in Kansas and beyond.
The SHC telehealth office is located inside the Newton Surgery Center.
