ChenMed Opens 10 Senior Medical Centers in Four New Markets in 2018
Since our founding more than 30 years ago in South Florida, ChenMed has been on a mission to deliver affordable VIP health care to the neediest populations across the United States—low- and moderate-income seniors.
This year we took a giant leap forward in our goal of reaching more of the seniors who need the most care by opening our 50th senior medical center.
At ChenMed, we see each day how value-based care leads to better outcomes for the seniors who visit our centers. As a full-risk Medicare Advantage provider, ChenMed provides our patients with more access to care, more convenience in accessing it, and more preventive services. For example, at ChenMed, our physicians have patient panel sizes that are less than one-fifth the size of the national average (450 vs. 2,300). This care leads to exceptional results, with ChenMed rates of emergency room visits 33.6 percent lower than the average among comparable Medicare beneficiaries.
The Better Medicare Alliance (BMA), a coalition of experts and organizations that support Medicare Advantage based in Washington, D.C., recently traveled to ChenMed’s Hallandale Beach center to learn more about the ChenMed model of care. ChenMed Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gordon Chen and ChenMed South Florida Market President Jason Barker welcomed BMA President Allyson Schwartz, a former U.S. Congresswoman, and BMA Senior Policy Associate Amanda Hurley.
MIAMI – ChenMed, a leading provider of value-based care for seniors, announced today the addition of Horst Schulze and Herbert Fritch to its board of directors. Schulze and Fritch are pioneers in their industries and bring an unparalleled expertise to accelerate the success and impact ChenMed can have through its innovative primary care model.
