Jeremy Walker, DO
Physician of the Month
After much hard work over the past few months, Dr. Walker helped to start the Telemedicine Program. He’s now taken on the role of Lead Telemedicine Hospitalist and has truly shown his desire to improve the lives of those who need care.
He has defined processes, worked with IT on workflows and trained different specialty groups and nursing on how to properly use telemedicine carts. This new process and way to see patients allows them to stay at the hospital they’re at, even if they need a higher level of care. They no longer have to be transferred if it’s not needed.
His dedication to this and his determination to see it through is inspiring.
