Springfield Hospital offering new telehealth programs via Dartmouth Health

Published: 04-28-2023 12:02 PM

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. — Springfield Hospital is partnering with Dartmouth Health Connected Care to use three forms of telehealth, according to a news release.

The partnership includes the services of TeleNeurology and TelePsychiatry in Springfield Hospital’s emergency department and inpatient rooms, as well as TeleICN (intensive care neonatology) for the care of newborn babies in the emergency department. 

Springfield Hospital closed its birthing center in 2019. In the Upper Valley, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon and Gifford Medical Center in Randolph are the only hospitals that continue to deliver babies.

The telehealth services, which launched on Tuesday, allow Springfield Hospital providers to consult with DH specialists who assist in assessing patients and help guide treatment recommendations. The services help provide a higher level of care than the critical access hospital might otherwise be able to provide.
