Telemedicine at Rice Medical Center
Beginning in March 2015, we instituted a Telemedicine program by which we provide primary care services to
rural school districts and remote locations. We also plan to bring specialists on board to make those specialty
services that lend themselves well to Telemedicine more available to our patients here locally.
We are currently providing primary care and urgent care, when needed, to the two Texas ChalleNGe Academy
locations. The first, in Sheffield, Texas started using Telemedicine in March. The second campus, here in
Eagle Lake, started using Telemedicine in July.
We are proud to be expanding our reach and serving the health of the students of Rice CISD and East
Bernard ISD starting this fall school semester. We look forward to the future of Telemedicine and the
advantages that it will afford our community.
