Pediatric Telemedicine

In collaboration with SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Hospital, pediatric patients ​in Centralia and Mt. Vernon, Illinois receive  medical evaluations from the SLUCare physicians at SSM Cardinal Glennon more than 80 miles away in St. Louis without leaving the Emergency or NICU department.​

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon's pediatric telemedicine Emergency Department (ED) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) programs provide real-time remote consultation and evaluation through interactive, high-definition video and audio communication. By using enhanced video technology, pediatric patients are able to receive around the clock remote health care without a transfer to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis, Missouri. 

Families are able to receive emergency and specialized NICU consultations, evaluations, and exams through SSM Health's electronic medical record system that allows sharing of your child’s medical information with physicians at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon.
