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 our local Emergency Department or Level II Nursery.​

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon's pediatric telemedicine programs provide:

  • Real-time remote consultation and evaluation through interactive, high-definition video and audio communication
  • Around-the-clock remote health care without a transfer to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon in St. Louis, Missouri
  • Same SSM Health electronic health record for care of your child

No Need To Transfer To A Specialty Children's Hospital - We're Connected!

​​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. 

In a minor emergency, hold your child's place in the ER.
