Florida Hospital New Smyrna has announced its partnership with Advanced ICU Care to provide tele-ICU clinical services to its critically ill patient population. The partnership extends Advanced ICU Care’s growing, multi-state relationship with Adventist Health System hospitals for collaborative ICU patient care via telemedicine.
Working collaboratively, Advanced ICU Care will help support New Smyrna’s bedside clinicians to deliver 24/7 care by U.S. board-certified intensivists and standardized critical care aligned with national benchmark standards. Numerous studies have found that constant monitoring and joint care delivered by the bedside and telemedicine team consistently delivers reduced mortality and improved patient experience and outcomes.
“Providing our ICU patients with the highest quality of care is a top priority for Florida Hospital New Smyrna,” said Ken Mattison, CEO, Florida Hospital New Smyrna. “Expanded access to intensivist-led care through Advanced ICU Care’s tele-ICU service complements our efforts to provide our patients exceptional critical care and deliver access to the gold standard of 24/7 intensivist oversight to our community.”
