Blue & You Foundation Awards Grant to Arkansas Rural Health Partnership Allowing the Purchase of Telehealth Equipment for 14 South Arkansas Hospitals

June 11th, 2020 by

ARHPThe Arkansas Rural Health Partnership (ARHP) was recently awarded a $136,400 grant from The Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas. This substantial grant allowed ARHP to purchase important telehealth equipment for member hospitals throughout south Arkansas. Access to quality care via telehealth is especially crucial to COVID-19 patients. 

 

A substantial number of iPads and mobile carts were purchased and will be distributed to the following ARHP member hospitals: Ashley County Medical Center, Baptist Health- Stuttgart, Bradley County Medical Center, Chicot Memorial Medical Center, Dallas County Medical Center, Delta Memorial Hospital, DeWitt Hospital and Nursing Home, Drew Memorial Health System, Helena Regional Medical Center Magnolia Regional Medical Center, Jefferson Regional Medical Center, McGehee Hospital, Medical Center of South Arkansas, and Ouachita County Medical Center.

 

“We all recognize the need to be prepared to care for critically ill COVID-19 patients in rural Arkansas, especially if the larger Arkansas hospitals reach capacity,” says Mellie Bridewell, CEO of ARHP.  “Hospitals in the state’s rural areas can play a key role in responding to the pandemic in Arkansas, but most are struggling under financial pressures and limited resources including supplies and equipment.” 

 

 The CDC is encouraging the widespread use of telehealth in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Telehealth technology, originally designed to give patients who live far from a provider reliable access to care, can now be more widely used as a way to screen and diagnose patients without risking the spread of COVID-19 through personal contact

 

“This generous grant from the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas illustrates how industry and non-profit groups can work together to ensure rural Arkansans have access to quality healthcare services,” said Bridewell. 

 

The Blue & You Foundation has awarded nine additional grants in its Rapid-Response COVID-19 Relief program, which will provide up to $1.7 million in grants to organizations in Arkansas working to prevent the spread of coronavirus or helping communities deal with its effects.
