BWW Interview: Beau Gravitte at Ridgefield Playhouse
by Sherry Shameer Cohen - Sep 2, 2016

Connecticut has almost an embarrassment of riches when it comes to seasoned performers who settle here while still finding opportunities to act close to home as well as in New York and Hollywood. One of our favorite couples is Beau and Debbie Gravitte (nee Shapiro), who add so much professionally to venues such as The Ridgefield Playhouse. If you are not from Connecticut, you ought to understand that The Ridgefield Playhouse is one of those places that are very special to performers as well as audiences. It is not a glorified school auditorium, but a professional venue with seating up to 500 people for film, theatre, and concerts with appearances from nationally popular, award winning performers and directors. The Gravittes' unwavering commitment to the playhouse and to the Ridgefield area is remarkable. (more...)

Vidyo's visual communications technology is integrated into Mercy's central TeleICU command center in St. Louis, which also supports other critical care telemedicine services at Mercy such as telestroke, telecardiology and teleperinatal. With the integration of Vidyo and Philips eCare Manager, SafeWatch is able to provide around-the-clock vigilance of critically ill patients. Over 450 Philips TelelCU monitored beds have been equipped with Vidyo so that Mercy's critical care doctors and nurses can watch over and communicate with ICU patients, their families and bedside healthcare staff via Vidyo from a central command center. According to Wendy Deibert, vice president of Telehealth Services at Mercy, the health system expects to expand the use of Vidyo to even more beds and applications. “With Vidyo we are able to do many things a bedside physician can do, except physically touch a patient. We can see the entire room, from the drips to the ventilator panel, to how the patient looks. We can talk to the family, patient or nurses in the room.” (more...)
