Shelbyville Memorial Hospital recently became HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital, and part of the reasoning behind the merger was to give the hospital the ability to expand their services and improve the level of care for their patients.
Glenda Plunkett with HSHS Good Shepherd hospital said the merger have already resulted in lives being saved in Shelby County, as well as bringing in new technologies to the hospital.
The telemedicine program lets doctors all across the country have 24/7 access to patients at HSHS Good Sphered Hospital who need it. Plunkett said the first time they utilized the program, the doctor although from California, had a Shelbyville connection.
Plunkett appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our Downtown Shelbyville Studios.
