McGehee Hospital has been incorporating telemedicine into innovative care for the better part of this century, from stroke treatment with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) neurologists to cardiology consults with Arkansas Heart Hospital specialists.

COVID-19 created the need for alternatives to face-to-face patient visits with primary-care providers, and McGehee Family Clinic met that challenge by offering telemed visits for patients. The safety provided by telemed continues to grow in popularity with all patient ages.
