Infinity HealthCare to provide emergency medical services in Oconto Falls
Infinity HealthCare has signed a deal to become the provider of emergency medical services at St. Clare Memorial, starting May 1.
The Oconto Falls’ former small-town hospital will soon be under the emergency care of Infinity HealthCare providers.
St. Clare Memorial sees about 5,000 patients annually in its emergency department.
Infinity HealthCare offers the emergency patients improved care under a talented network of innovative physicians.
This new contract includes the introduction of tele-robotic equipment that will enable Infinity HealthCare’s off-site specialists to examine St. Clare Memorial patients remotely, using a robotic device.
The current facility, built in 1972, has been expanded many times and now includes a variety of services.
Although community-owned-and-operated, the hospital affiliated with the Catholic-based Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) in 2014.
Multiple other HSHS hospitals have also outsourced their emergency room operations to Infinity HealthCare.
St. Clare obtained a similar arrangement to address some of the obstacles associated with rural hospitals.
