Program: Telemedicine & Telehealth
For more than two decades, Horton Community Hospital in Horton, KS, has partnered with the KU Center for Telemedicine and Telehealth in offering a vital range of available telemedicine and telehealth services. Located almost due north of Topeka and just east of the Kickapoo Indian reservation, Horton’s rural location makes it a major provider of vital health resources for the entire northeast region of Kansas.
Since 1997, a full team of Horton Community Hospital professionals, including nurses, administrative personnel and technical support staff, have worked closely with the University of Kansas Medical Center physicians to provide much-needed clinical services – including programs like Cardiology, Oncology, Dermatology and Diet & Nutrition.
Even today, this team continues to “lead the way” - providing telemedicine and on-site services that might not otherwise be available to rural parts of northeast Kansas.
