With staffing shortages and lack of specialty expertise now endemic in healthcare, company poised to deliver a mature, comprehensive model of virtual care.

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Equum Medical, a leading provider of acute care telehealth solutions, today announced strategic executive leadership hires to support its growing portfolio of clinical services that will help meet staffing and capacity challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Funding from the Heritage Group has enabled EQUUM to further enhance its service model and broaden the reach of its experienced team of clinicians across the United States and beyond as the company executes its strategic vision of telehealth as a more prominent and permanent feature of the future healthcare delivery system.

"We are designing a company that anticipates the digitization of healthcare and through it the broader adoption of virtual care across the patient continuum," said Equum Founder and CEO Dr. Corey Scurlock, MD, MBA. "Through this tenured leadership team, Equum Medical is uniquely positioned to deliver on the full promise of acute telehealth."

Throughout the COVID pandemic Equum has supported hospitals large and small, urban and rural by connecting them via technology with highly trained specialists. Now it is building on this foundation by integrating new telehealth-enabled clinical services that can connect care from the emergency department to discharge with point of care teams supported continuously via virtual care. Equum Medical's portfolio of clinical solutions is aimed at reducing bottlenecks that impact cost, quality and access for health systems and optimizing patient flow.

Services now include:

Executing on this strategic vision is a team that unites over 70 years of telehealth experience. The Clinical Excellence Office reports directly into Dr. Scurlock and Dr. Brian Rosenfeld, MD and other key physician leaders. The Operational Excellence Office includes Huy Tran, MA, Chief People Officer and SVP of Operations; Reed McNamara, MAcc, SVP of Finance; and Justin Thuli, VP of Information Technology. The Partner Growth and Experience Office includes Marc Svenson, SVP of Growth; and Karsten Russell-Wood, MBA MPH, Chief Marketing & Experience Officer.

"Our customers wanted a single strategic partner for virtual care delivery, and I believe we have delivered a scalable model that demonstrates our differentiated offering," Scurlock said. "We are proud to announce that this vision will be fulfilled by a dream team of experienced telehealth leaders from across the industry."
