  • Our providers are located across the country and can work from home while serving a much-needed population in post-acute facilities like nursing homes to prevent unnecessary ER visits and unnecessary hospitalizations.
  • Many of our physicians have a strong interest in the geriatric population, subacute population, complex patient care, value-based care models, and innovation, and have a growth mindset interested in serving an underserved population.
