What does telemedicine mean for you?
Aspen Valley Hospital’s renowned network of care encompasses the Upper Roaring Fork Valley and beyond, and now, everything from primary care to multiple medical specialties are available to patients throughout the region via telehealth. This remains a critical aspect to patient care in early 2021, when COVID-19 still remains a risk to public health and vulnerable populations. However, it is worth considering integrating telemedicine into your long-term medical care.
Telemedicine is not suitable for all medical conditions and patients — those experiencing a medical emergency should seek immediate medical attention at AVH’s emergency department. But for patients looking for a convenient way to connect with their primary care provider — including after-hours care — telemedicine is an excellent option.
