2019 Campaign for Pediatric Telehealth
The Pediatric Telehealth system is a child-friendly telemedicine kiosk with video and real-time videoconferencing capabilities. From this kiosk, Baylor Scott & White doctors at one of the busiest charitable hospitals in Dallas-Fort Worth area can use the kiosk technology and capabilities to virtually communicate with specialists at a local children’s hospital to discus, diagnose and determine the best possible care for our young patients.
The kiosk and equipment will specifically be used at the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center in Irving, Texas. Each year, the Irving Hospital Emergency Room (ER) serves more than 70,000 patients—with nearly 17,000 of those being minors, 18 years of age or younger. While the Irving ER cares for thousands of children safely and expertly without any issues, emergency doctors at the facility transfer about 650 children by ambulance to a local children’s hospital each year, to provide greater expertise in care for these young patents.
One Pediatric Telehealth Kiosk costs $19,000. Baylor Scott & White and Wonderland Montessori Academy are hoping to fully fund the cost through our donations, gifts from our families, vendors and friends We appreciate your assistance in supporting this generous cause.
