Advanced ICU Care Launches Tele-ICU Service with Gordon Hospital of Adventist Health System

June 27, 2017 <Saint Louis, MO> – Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s leading provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced the launch of tele-ICU clinical services at Gordon Hospital in northwest Georgia. Gordon, part of Adventist Health System, adds to the tele-ICU relationship between the system and Advanced ICU Care which now encompasses hospitals in seven states.

Advanced ICU Care’s team of board-certified intensivists and critical care advanced practitioners and nurses provide around-the-clock monitoring of Gordon Hospital’s ICU patients. Enabled via a secure flow of patient data from various hospital systems and monitoring technologies, Advanced ICU Care’s critical care clinical team provides care from an integrated network of eight care centers. Advanced ICU Care’s providers provide care in collaboration with Gordon’s bedside staff. This constant monitoring and collaborative contact between care teams ensures that critical care expertise is always available to each patient.

“This partnership will combine experienced intensivist-led care teams, sophisticated technology and collaborative programs with hospital staff to achieve a rigorous focus on evidence-based best practices that help improve patient care and safety,” said Dr Joseph Joyave, the CMO of Gordon Hospital coordinating the tele-ICU relationship. “With the addition of around-the-clock tele-monitoring by intensivist physicians to the quality care already provided by our ICU team and physicians in the hospital, our ICU patients will receive the highest level of medical care.”

Gordon Hospital joins multiple other facilities in Adventist Health System that belong to a large, 7 state tele-ICU relationship between the system and Advanced ICU Care. “Our relationship with Advanced ICU Care enables us to support our onsite providers and clinicians and consistently deliver high-quality critical care aligned with national standards across a spectrum of hospitals,” said Jean Turcotte, System Director Patient Care Operations at Adventist Health System.

“We are extremely pleased to partner with Gordon Hospital and further expand our tele-ICU relationship with Adventist Health System, said Lou Silverman, CEO of Advanced ICU Care. “The continued growth and ongoing evolution of our Adventist partnership is a tribute to the vision and priorities of AHS’s leadership and the vibrancy of our forward looking relationship. On behalf of our entire team, I welcome the patients and staff from Gordon Hospital as new members of the Advanced ICU Care community.”
