Mercy Hospitals Receive Grant For Telehealth Expansion

NWA Daily

Mercy Hospitals, 18 in Northwest Arkansas, received $2.2m to upgrade their Telehealth services. 

  • Virtual visits: The grant came from the Federal Communications Commission to expand and upgrade virtual offerings. Since the start of the pandemic, Mercy has provided more than 800k virtual visits, whereas there were only 10k visits in 2019. 
  • Even more personal: Within the expansion of virtual programs, the grant will afford hospitals to provide telemedicine carts and monitors for offsite video conferencing, which will make care more safe and timely.
