Saint Luke’s Health System (SLHS) was no stranger to telemedicine when it called on Eagle to provide hospitalist and nocturnist services in three of its 16 hospitals and specialty care institutes in November 2017.
SLHS had been providing its own telemedicine program to several facilities. A drive to improve efficiencies in care prompted the company to turn over it virtual hospitalist the program to Eagle, which already had a strong presence in rural hospitals in Kansas.
Today, two SLHS Critical Access Hospitals in Missouri receive support from virtual hospitalists using Eagle’s TeleNocturnist program. A third hospital in Saint Luke’s Health System, Cushing Hospital in Leavenworth County, Kansas, uses Eagle’s remote hospitalists to support its 54 bed facility.
