Unity expands, adds pulmonary telemedicine

Unity Medical Center, in partnership with TriStar Centennial, is proud to announce that Dr. Jackson Wray will be performing consults for pulmonary telemedicine at Unity Medical Center in Manchester.

Unity announced in December that it would employ a state-of-the-art robot that will allow patients at UMC instant access to specialists while being a patient at Unity.
