Littleton Regional Healthcare, a not-for-profit community hospital serving the communities of Northern New Hampshire, is partnering with Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Connected Care to provide critical neonatal services to its patients via telemedicine.
TeleICN, or intensive care neonatology provided through telemedicine, provides 24/7 real time assessment and treatment recommendations for babies born in Littleton.
“Our North Country Women’s Health providers from Littleton Regional Healthcare are so pleased to work with Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Connected Care to offer these vital services to the patients we serve,” says Robert Nutter, president at Littleton Regional Healthcare.
“The Dartmouth-Hitchcock team is delighted to form this partnership with Littleton Regional Healthcare,” says Steven Ringer, MD, chief of neonatology at CHaD. “We are excited to contribute to the excellent care that is provided in Littleton and to have the opportunity to offer our services instantly through telemedicine technology.”
TeleICN has been shown to reduce transfers, helping to keep patients and their families closer to home.
