LWC adds Telehealth access for campus community

By Venus Popplewell
LWC Public Relations

LWC has partnered with Cumberland Family Medical Centers to provide primary care and mental health services to students, faculty and staff.

"The LWC community will now have access to primary healthcare services through telehealth technology," said LWC Dean of Students Chris Schmidt. "This partnership also provides access to more than 50 mental health counselors. Remote services will be available to all students including those who attend LWC online and at extended campus locations."

Students who need to see a service provider will contact LWC Director of Health Services and Campus Nurse Tamara Coots.

"I will assess the student or employee and then help them to sign in and set up the telehealth call," said Coots, an Adair County native who joined LWC to manage health services in a full-time capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic. "The telehealth technology provided by Cumberland Family Medical Centers is secure, reliable and accessible. CFMC is a perfect partner for LWC - serving this underserved region is as important to them as it is to Lindsey Wilson."

When students, faculty or staff are feeling unwell they can visit Coots in the Blue Raider Sports Medicine office located in the basement of Phillips Hall or call 270-384-8138.
