Dartmouth-Hitchcock is creating a virtual center to improve the treatment of Crohn’s disease across northern New England.

The health system will use a grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to expand its telemedicine program for inflammatory bowel disease. The new virtual center, based at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, will serve patients in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

Officials say a nationwide shortage of specialists for Crohn’s disease is especially acute in rural communities.
