Life Care Physician Services
There is something comforting about home. It’s where you can relax and heal. It’s where memories are made. It’s where quality time is spent with friends and family. It’s where you can be yourself. Thousands of residents call our centers home, and they relax, regain function, make memories and enjoy leisure time within our facilities.
With a continual focus on making our centers as comfortable as possible, we have an exciting new service. Life Care Physician Services, a subsidiary of Life Care Centers of America, is placing on-site doctors in Life Care buildings. These physicians work with the facility’s interdisciplinary team, medical director and other attending physicians in caring for each of the facility’s patients. The doctor’s presence in the nursing home enhances physician accessibility to patients and families. It also aids in hospital transitions and pharmacy communications, and being on-site allows the doctor to personally respond to medical changes or emergencies in a timely manner.
The doctors in our centers recognize that working in long-term care and short-term rehab is more than a job – it is a calling. These individuals see the changes and trends in the nursing home industry and are excited to be an intricate part of shaping the future of this field.
The Life Care Physician initiative was featured on the cover of the February 2012 edition of Provider magazine. Click below to read the article.
