“Altus Answers” focuses on quick, one-minute clips highlighting health tips, services inside Altus ERs, and recently began branching out to highlight other Altus Health entities such as Altus Cancer Center (pictured).

Recent segments have included topics such as the symptoms of cardiac disease, various causes for abdominal pain, dangerous reasons behind some headaches, and an explanation of Zika virus. ER-related segments include the introduction of Patient Advocate Kam Polnick, who introduces patients on the Patient Advocate process and what it means to have that resource available to them.
