Charleston Area Medical Center has announced it will be collaborating with Greenbrier Valley Medical Center in Greenbrier County and Plateau Medical Center in Fayette County to improve access to advanced care specialists at CMAC. According to a press release, the first initiative will be tele-cardiology support.

Cardiology specialists at CAMC will provide cardiology consults via tele-health technology to the physicians caring for patients at the two southern WV facilities. Officials say the collaboration will allow more patients to stay in their own communities and local hospitals for care.
