You will not have to travel far to address your behavioral healthcare needs. Door County Medical Center and Integrated Telehealth Partners announced on Tuesday that they would be teaming up to provide telehealth services in behavioral healthcare. The partnership includes outpatient services for referrals made by DCMC staff and consultancy services for the hospital’s emergency department. Board-certified nurse practitioner Rosalyn Geier will provide the outpatient services as she helps patients navigate mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders, and trauma histories for adults, and general mental health concerns for children. Sandy Vandertie from Door County Medical Center says having telehealth options available for patients, especially in rural areas, has been very helpful.
Vandertie emphasized that even though the pandemic made it more familiar, Door County Medical Center has been using telehealth services for many years, highlighting their programs that help identify strokes and pediatric issues.
