Newborn Emergency Telemedicine (NeoNET) puts specialty care at the fingertips of regional providers
Doctors who deliver premature or critically ill babies in the region don't have Neonatal Intensive Care Units on site. Gundersen Health System's NeoNET (Newborn Emergency Telemedicine) program provides hospitals with live video consultation of Gundersen's neonatologists in its Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The service is available to all regional access hospitals. Even hospitals that don't deliver babies regularly can equip their emergency departments with NeoNET.
ORBERA offers patients a non-surgical weight-loss procedure

The balloon is used in conjunction with a yearlong supervised nutrition and behavior modification program. Clinical trial has shown an average weight loss that is 3.1 times greater over those six months than diet and exercise alone.
