Rutland Regional Medical Center announced today a new online tool designed to introduce the community to two of the hospital’s specialty service areas. Virtual tours are now available online of the Foley Cancer Center and the Rutland Heart Center.
Rutland Regional’s online tours provide a stunning 360 degree visual presentation with informative descriptions of the surroundings, services and tests provided at the Foley Cancer Center and Rutland Heart Center. The self-guided tours enable visitors to explore specialty testing areas and learn about procedures, visit patient exam rooms and familiarize themselves with the services provided.
“We designed the virtual tours so the community can have a better understanding of what they will see when they walk through the doors of the Foley Cancer Center or Rutland Heart Center,” said Tom Huebner, CEO and President of Rutland Regional Medical Center. “We know the unfamiliar surroundings and equipment at a hospital can cause feelings of fear and anxiety in patients. The goal of this new tool is to prepare patients for what they will see and feel and clarify any misconceptions they may have about the upcoming experience.”
The virtual tours have been added to Rutland Regional’s website in the About Us section.
