Las Vegas--Las Vegas Heart Associates, MountainView Medical Associates, MountainView Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery Associates, Nevada Neurosciences Institute and Nevada Cardiovascular and Thoracic Institute are now offering telehealth visits for their patients.
Patients may now have a real-time visit with their provider simply using their existing mobile device, or computer, from the comfort of their home. Depending on the patient's needs, providers will determine whether a telehealth visit is right for them.
"Our number one priority remains caring for those in our community, be it for concerns related to COVID-19, routine annual care, or other health issues our patients will continue to experience. We want everyone to know we remain open and ready to serve you, be it through telehealth or an in-person appointment," said Julie Hendricks, Division Vice President for HCA Healthcare's Physician Services Group. "With five practices ranging in specialties from Cardiology, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Internal Medicine and Neurology, our board-certified physicians are experts in their fields and provide a comprehensive approach to patient care within our community."
At this time, platforms included in the HCA Healthcare telehealth program include Healow (part of our secure patient portal), Apple FaceTime, Google Duo, and WebEx Meetings. At this time, only the physician practices are offering telehealth options within HCA Healthcare in Las Vegas.
