Raleigh, NC (Vocus) April 30, 2009 -- TeleHealth Services, the nation's leading provider of healthcare on-demand patient and staff education, healthcare televisions and communications solutions, has announced a joint initiative with UNC-TV, North Carolina's member-supported statewide television network, to bring UNC-KD, a new digital TV channel providing programs for children 24 hours a day, to children's hospitals throughout North Carolina.

To make the UNC-KD service more accessible, TeleHealth Services will absorb the cost of adding UNC-KD to the current line-up of programming at children's hospitals throughout North Carolina.
