TripleCare to Introduce Telemedicine Services in Three Skilled Nursing Facilities

TripleCare, a national provider of telemedicine-based healthcare services to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), just announced that the Company has entered into an agreement to provide virtual telemedicine services to three Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing Inc. (WISH) skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) managed by Lakewood, Colo.-based Carriage Healthcare Companies, Inc. (CHC).

Effective early 2018, TripleCare will introduce services to one SNF in Illinois, and two in Wisconsin, marking the Company’s entry into that state. The three SNF facilities and locations are:

  • Montello Care Center, a 50-bed facility located at 251 Forest Lane, Montello, WI 53949, 608-297-2153
  • Edgerton Care Center, a 61-bed facility located at 313 Stoughton Road, Edgerton, WI 53534, 608-884-1330
  • Fair Oaks Health Care Center, a 51-bed facility located at 471 W. Terra Cotta Avenue, Crystal Lake, IL 60014, 815-455-0550

According to details shared in a media release, each location is owned by WISH and managed by CHC, a multi-state operator of SNFs, assisted living facilities, independent living facilities and home health agencies, primarily in rural communities.

TripleCare’s virtual healthcare services employ telemedicine protocols during times when physicians are not on site, such as overnight, weekends and holidays.

“With the rollout of our services, WISH becomes a pioneer in terms of introducing telemedicine to these remotely located facilities. They are addressing a real community and patient need, especially in the rural areas they serve. Montello Care Center, Edgerton Care Center and Fair Oaks Health Care Center will be the only facilities in these local communities utilizing this type of telemedicine and technology,” stated Mary Jo Gorman, chief executive officer at TripleCare.
