Virtual Visits – Healthcare You Need At Home

Virtual Visits – Healthcare You Need At Home

Virtual visits are basically secure, video conferencing visits with your health provider. Of course if you are sick, you want to avoid going outside of your house. With Renown Health’s virtual visit program, you can now see a provider from the comfort of your own home. As we work to keep all of our patients home and healthy, we’re here for any ongoing healthcare needs you have.

There are two easy ways to access a virtual visit with Renown Health.

  1. If you need an urgent care visit, you can get in line using your MyChart account
  2. You can make a virtual visit with some Renown Health providers you see currently


Virtual Urgent Care from a Renown Provider
