Mt. Ascutney, the subject of many celebrated painters over the years.

Hospitals & Health Networks reports:

“The emergency department at Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, a 25-bed critical access hospital in Windsor, Vt., is staffed by physician assistants, with an emergency physician on backup. But if they need more immediate help, the push of a button will summon emergency medicine specialists — from South Dakota.

“A two-way, high-definition video/audio link connects two Mt. Ascutney Hospital emergency bays to Sioux Falls, S.D.-based Avera Health, a leading provider of tele-emergency services, through an arrangement with the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Center for Telehealth. Mt. Ascutney Hospital is an affiliate of Dartmouth-Hitchcock {Medical Center, based in Lebanon, N.H., and   the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College.)
