Closing the Rural Health Care Access Gap
The Critical Access Physician Extender Program is a pilot program designed to fill the gap left by the closing of Jackman's emergency care center three years ago. The program, created by Jonathan Busko of St. Joseph Hospital in Bangor, trains paramedics to provide emergency in-clinic services and could serve as a model for other rural areas. Paramedics team up with emergency room doctors via a telehealth connection.
