Telehealth Services and Virtual Care

In collaboration with regional health care providers, St. Luke's provides virtual care, also known as telehealth or telemedicine technology, to connect patients and health care professionals in different physical locations. Currently, St. Luke's offers two-way audio-visual encounters for critical care and specialty services, allowing us to extend high quality healthcare services to a broader region and improve health outcomes. 

We also operate a Virtual Care Center, a high-tech care hub where centralized medical teams use telehealth technology with a human touch to care for patients around-the-clock – when and where they need us. 

For more information about virtual care at St. Luke's, please

Critical Care Telehealth

Connecting Teams of ICU Specialists

Telehealth allows our critical care doctors and nurses to monitor multiple intensive care patients and assist in ICU management from a centralized location. We use computers, cameras, microphones, and sophisticated software to provide an additional layer of support for you or your loved ones.

We monitor patients with two teams working together. The first team is the bedside critical care specialists in the ICU; the second includes specialists in a centralized remote location. Together, they work to continuously monitor you during your stay. The teleICU staff are able to alert the onsite staff to changes in your condition and can better avoid adverse outcomes.
