Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced ICU Care, the nation's largest, most experienced provider of high-acuity telemedicine services, announced today the launch of tele-ICU clinical services at Penn Highlands DuBois (PH DuBois), the largest hospital in the Penn Highlands Healthcare network, located in northeastern Pennsylvania. The collaborative partnership will extend PH DuBois' ability to deliver the gold standard of critical care by leveraging Advanced ICU Care's cutting-edge tele-technology and care by U.S. board-certified intensivists.

Caring for high-acuity patients and managing the emerging issues that often arise in the ICU requires the availability of experienced, specialized clinicians around-the-clock. For PH DuBois , Advanced ICU Care's tele-ICU offering complements the hospital's care plans by delivering 24/7 intensivist oversight of ICU patients regardless of hospital census or the competing patient demands on the bedside team. Continuous monitoring and intensivist-led care, along with Advanced ICU Care's more than 12 years of experience providing comprehensive high-acuity clinical services and a robust analytics program, are proven to reduce mortality rates and length of stay in the ICU.
