During these uncertain times, Methodist Hospital is doing everything in its power to ensure you and your family are taken care of.

Virtually, all of the Methodist Physician Group physicians are available to you and your family via TeleHealth services. That means your device – your smartphone, your tablet, your computer – is your gateway to a healthier life.

Methodist Physician Group TeleHealth employs modern technology to enable physicians to conduct virtual patient visits by using HIPAA compliant video-conferencing tools. Thanks to high-definition audio and video technology, these virtual patient visits are essentially the same as regular face-to-face office visits, and are covered by many insurance plans. That means patients from across Northwest Indiana can get the same care they’ve come to expect from Methodist Physician Group doctors from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
