Casa Grande Regional Medical Center Selects STAT DOCTORS eHealth Service for Its Employees

Benefit Gives Employees Free Access to 24/7 Care for Common, Urgent Medical Issues

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) - Casa Grande Regional Medical Center (CGRMC) has contracted with Stat Health Services to offer the STAT DOCTORS™ eHealth service to its 3,000 employees and covered dependents. CGRMC, a 187-bed community hospital that serves as a base station to more than 12 Pinal County emergency service providers, is making the comprehensive eHealth service available to aid its employees in maintaining health. CGRMC becomes the second health system in the state to offer the STAT DOCTORS benefit to its employees and is covering the cost of the service for its employees.

"STAT DOCTORS brings our employees and their families the ultimate convenience to get the care they need right away," explained Rona Curphy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Casa Grande Regional Medical Center. "It's a powerful tool for engaging in earlier health intervention and getting our valuable employees back on their feet sooner so they can continue to provide the highest quality care for our community."

STAT DOCTORS is an innovative eHealth service that brings patients and their families a modern day virtual house call from the convenience of their home, work, or while traveling. Patients log in to the STAT DOCTORS secure platform to request an eVisit and can conduct the consultation using a webcam or just using the phone number designated when they schedule the eVisit.

Curphy added, "We want our employees to take advantage of the STAT DOCTORS benefit so we are making it available to them free of charge. This truly is an innovative approach that brings together top notch medical care and technology to address the need for high quality, convenient, affordable services for acute, common, minor medical conditions."

"We are pleased to partner with CGRMC and make STAT DOCTORS available to their employees and dependents," stated Alan C. Roga, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Stat Health Services. "This is powerful validation from the hospital community that STAT DOCTORS is an effective and valuable benefit for employees that also helps control healthcare costs."
