The upgrades and expansion of this resource will allow AR Gould to provide essential lifesaving technology and peace of mind for residents of Aroostook County well into the future”

This new technology is a much-needed upgrade for the hospital. Seleipiri Akobo, MD, at the hospital says “Telemonitoring allows access to data in real time, which in and of itself provides much needed information to respond to the dynamic nature of our patients’ care”
