DEXTER, Mo. – Eleven rural hospitals throughout Missouri will soon be able to provide improved telemedicine care for their patients, thanks to $262,000 in grants from the MoBroadbandNow initiative announced today by Gov. Jay Nixon. The Governor made the announcement in Dexter at Missouri Southern Healthcare, one of the recipients of a Rural Hospital Broadband Connection grant, where he was joined by local healthcare leaders and by officials from the MoBroadbandNow program.
“One of the very real benefits of improved broadband service in rural Missouri is in telemedicine – connecting Missourians and their physicians with specialists many miles away who can look at high-resolution images and receive other vital information on a real-time basis to help doctors treat those patients,” Gov. Nixon said. “Expanded broadband accessibility between healthcare providers will mean access to quicker and more specialized care that is often life-saving for patients.”
Missouri Southern Healthcare, formerly known as Dexter Memorial Hospital, is a 50-patient bed acute care hospital with six rural health clinics. The hospital is receiving a grant of up to $25,000 to help increase broadband speed throughout its healthcare system and to expand its connectivity with the clinics. The current broadband speed of 1.5Mbps will improve to 10Mbps, allowing for improved telemedicine services, such as radiology imaging. Missouri Southern Healthcare will provide $5,000 in matching funds for the project.
“I commend Missouri Southern Healthcare and the other rural hospitals for their efforts to use these benefits as part of their healthcare missions,” the Governor said. “We continue to see how MoBroadbandNow has benefited Missouri in healthcare, education, public safety and commerce, and will do so for decades to come.”
In addition to the grant for the hospital in Dexter, Gov. Nixon also announced 10 other grants, including:
