Paris Community Hospital and UAP Clinic Cardiology Offer High Tech Care

Paris community Hospital, along with UAP Clinic Cardiology, is pleased to announce the addition of a new service line that is designed to care for patients in need of cardiology care. The new high-tech service resembles a television screen that is equipped with a stethoscope. The technology allows the UAP Clinic Cardiologist to hear the patient's heart and breath sounds, as well as talk with patients, nurses, and doctors while being treated at Paris Community Hospital.

"The technology has already proven to be highly successful for evaluating and treating rural patients from many of our smaller communities scattered throughout the Wabash Valley" said Dr. Krishna Namburi, UAP Clinic Cardiologist. "I am very excited to be able to offer this innovative service at Paris Community Hospital."

The project was made possible by a generous grant award made to Union Hospital's Richard G. Lugar Center of Health from the Health Resources Services Administration's (HRSA) Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (Grant # H2ARH20178) who partnered with Paris Community Hospital and UAP Clinic Cardiology to help patients overcome the barriers associated with seeing specialists outside of their rural communities.
