*The St. Luke’s Virtual Care Center is one of just a few in the nation, bringing vital medical access to patients in rural and often-underserved communities as well as metropolitan areas. Virtual care, also called telehealth or telemedicine, uses technology to connect a patient in one location with a health care provider in a separate, often distant location. The $3.4 million center will be a high-tech hub where a centralized medical team uses technology with a human touch to care for patients around-the-clock at clinics, hospitals and homes throughout Idaho and Eastern Oregon.
