More information about this job

Overview

Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community.  Our medical group provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.  

 

Because many of our patients are frail and elderly, we deliver care primarily in their home. Our Program is offered to eligible patients at no incremental financial cost. We are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. Our clinical teams spend quality time caring for a smaller number of high-risk patients, granting patients the respect, compassion and care they deserve.
