As many rural hospitals across the country are facing tremendous challenges that threaten their ability to provide care, Palo Pinto General Hospital is leveraging technologies like telemedicine to not just serve its patients, but to expand its services to meet its community’s health care needs.

In a recent interview with D Magazine, Palo Pinto’s CEO Ross Korkmas discussed the hospital’s success and the role its telemedicine partnership with Access TeleCare has played in improving patient care.

“It’s leveraging technology to improve patient care,” Korkmas said. “It’s a way to get our physicians and our patients access to specialists they may not have otherwise had access to.”

Telemedicine Specialty Care

Palo Pinto partners with Access TeleCare to provide 24/7 specialist coverage for neurology, pulmonary critical care, infectious disease, and psychiatry service lines in the hospital.

Access TeleCare is proud to partner with rural hospitals like Palo Pinto to improve access to specialty care for patients in their local communities. Palo Pinto is a prime example of how a strong telemedicine partner transforms the way rural hospitals provide specialty care and enables them to tackle the modern health care challenges they face.
