Patients in the hospital deserve to have the best care possible. Thanks to a partnership between Pioneer Memorial Hospital and Providence Health & Services, you now have 24-hour access to critical care expertise “here” in Heppner.

Through an advanced video system, Providence Telemedicine Network allows Portland-based critical care specialists from The Oregon Clinic's Pulmonary Critical Care Division to be “in the room” with you, your family and your Pioneer Memorial Hospital physicians, helping to determine the best treatment for you.

If it's determined that a telecritical care consult is appropriate, the telemedicine robot will be moved to the patient's bedside, where the consulting physician can perform an evaluation and consultation in collaboration with the patient’s attending physician.

Having access to Providence Telemedicine Network means you can receive the most effective treatments right in Heppner, near your family and friends.
