Memorial begins to offer 24/7 telehealth services
Memorial Hospital doctors were already using telehealth tech to connect with their patients during the pandemic, but that program has now expanded.
Memorial has now made it to where these virtual visits with your doctor are available 24/7. All you have to do is call 228-867-5000 to request a video appointment.
You will then receive a text message with a link to access the Memorial Connect Video Now Conference which allows you to meet with a doctor over the phone.
Memorial is the only health system to offer this 24/7 program in the area. Memorial Regional Business in System Development Vice President Chas Pierce said, “If you have kids, think about 12 o’clock at night. Your option is what? Go to the ER. You know if you’re really worried about it. Now they can call 867-5000 and get in touch with the provider and they can make a determination on whether or not you need medication or yeah you need to go to the ER.”
You can use any device as long as you have internet service.
