CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia hospital has signed an affiliation agreement to provide some clinical services at two other medical centers.
Charleston Area Medical Center announced the agreement in a news release with Greenbrier Valley Medical Center in Ronceverte and Plateau Medical Center in Oak Hill.
News outlets report that CAMC cites the need for cardiovascular services in Fayette and Greenbrier counties, which have high levels of heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
CAMC will help the other hospitals’ physicians through telecardiology services, which is the remote diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.
