What is Virtual Care?

Virtual care is the diagnosis and treatment of patients remotely using advanced communications technology. Virtual care at Gillette connects you to some of the best doctors in the world. Some of our physicians have been seeing patients via virtual care for more than 10 years.

Now, thanks to a generous donation from Dairy Queen, we’re expanding our virtual care services to families living in Greater Minnesota, around the United States and in other countries.

How Does Virtual Care Help My Family?

Where you live shouldn’t determine the quality of your child’s health care. We know that travel to our St. Paul, Minnesota location can be difficult, especially if your child has disabilities and might be in a wheelchair. Virtual care can help save you time, money and stress.

Virtual care appoint­ments improve efficiency and treatment outcomes, too. They ensure your child is being seen by the right provider at the right time.

How Does Virtual Care Work at Gillette?

Getting a Virtual care appointment at Gillette is easy thanks to our extensive networks of pediatric health clinics throughout Minnesota. One of our Greater Minnesota Gillette clinic locations is probably close to your home.

You’ll speak to a patient access representative and schedule a virtual care appointment at the clinic location that’s most convenient for you. A team of health professionals is at the local clinic and will provide all the support you need for the virtual care appointment with the doctor.

Our goal is to provide convenient access to the best Gillette services.
