Access Physicians and Mountain View Regional Medical Center Launch Teleneurology Service
July 13, 2020 (Las Cruces, New Mexico) – MountainView Regional Hospital is contracting with the nation’s leading multispecialty telemedicine physician group to bring teleneurology to its hospital. This means patients can receive timely, local care for more neurological issues, such as stroke and severe migraines. Prior to the collaboration with Access Physicians, southern New Mexico residents requiring certain neurological care had to be transferred to other hospitals farther away.
“Access Physicians prides itself on working with forward-thinking hospitals to enhance the delivery of clinical excellence locally,” said Chris Gallagher, M.D., CEO, Access Physicians. “Residents across southern New Mexico rely on MountainView Regional Medical Center to be there for them, no matter their health care needs or challenges. With our presence, MountainView can keep that promise.”
“We are extremely excited to collaborate with Access Physicians to enhance the level of care provided at MountainView Regional Medical Center,” said Derrick Cuenca, CEO of MountainView Regional Medical Center. “As Southern New Mexico’s only hospital to be recognized by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center, we have long prioritized having specialty care available locally. For strokes and other neurological conditions, seconds count, and having on-demand access to tele-neurologists will ensure our patients get the care they need quickly.”
Through the new relationship, MountainView Regional Hospital connects with an Access Physicians, board-certified neurologist via secure, high-resolution technology in minutes. On-site nurses and other physicians have access to the highest level of consultation to diagnose and treat patients experiencing a stroke or patients with Parkinson’s disease, severe migraines, vertigo, epilepsy and other neurological conditions.
