PLYMOUTH – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently awarded Speare Memorial Hospital $307,324 to purchase tablets and wireless net- work infrastructure upgrades, to help the hospital expand current telehealth offerings and outreach to unserved populations includ- ing long-term care facilities and veteran’s housing.
“We are very excited to have received this funding to support our infrastructure within our re- gion to better connect with our patients,” says Travis Boucher, chief financial officer at Speare
Memorial Hospital.
The FCC’s COVID-19 Tele-
health Program supports the efforts of health care providers to continue serving their pa- tients by providing reimburse- ment for telecommunications services, information services, and connected devices necessary to enable telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The pandemic has forced us to think differently about how to deliver health care services and the FCC has risen to the chal- lenge through a number of tele- health programs, including our
COVID-19 Telehealth Pro- gram,” says FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel. Speare Memorial Hospital was one of 100 additional applicants seeking funding – for a combined total of $47.89 million – from the FCC’s COVID-19 Telehealth Program.
Speare Memorial Hospital is an acute care, critical access hospital and healthcare pro- vider serving Plymouth and the communities of Central New Hampshire. Visit online at www. and on Face- book.
