RALEIGH, N.C.Dec. 6, 2016PRLog — RelyMD, North Carolina’s only independent telehealth service, is partnering with Onslow Memorial Hospital, a 161-bed facility located in Jacksonville. Beginning this month, all Onslow Memorial Hospital employees will have access to RelyMD as an alternative to urgent care or after-hours visits for non-emergency injuries and illnesses. The benefit will come at no cost to employees.

RelyMD provides statewide virtual health services 24/7/365 with access to board-certified emergency medicine physicians.  This web and mobile-based approach allows adult and pediatric patients to quickly obtain high-quality medical care – via an internet connection and web browser or app on a smartphone or tablet – with one of RelyMD’s 95 Triangle-based physicians.

“RelyMD was founded and is staffed by a group of board-certified emergency room physicians so we understand how demanding the schedules of hospital employees can be,” said Dr. Bobby Park, director of virtual healthcare for RelyMD. “We’re excited to partner with another North Carolina-based healthcare group in Onslow Memorial Hospital to provide them with a convenient time- and cost-effective alternative to emergency rooms and urgent care facilities. Our goal is to make life a little bit easier for these busy working professionals.”
