VENICE, Fla., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — EliteHealth Venice had its Grand Opening Ceremony on November 9th, 2017 marking the continued expansion of a new model aimed to transform health care by offering proactive, personalized care for Medicare beneficiaries. Patients aren't simply treated for what ails them, but are also provided with a more comprehensive team working on a plan to keep them on the path to their best health.
The state-of-the-art primary care practice operated by EliteHealth is located at 4125 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite 2 Venice, FL 34293. The Venice office offers 7000 square feet of space that includes 8 exam rooms; a 1100 square feet fitness center with classes specially designed for seniors and instructors that are Silver Sneakers certified; excellent doctors, nurses, therapists, health and wellness coaches, and an attentive staff who are tied to the local community .
State of the art technology including 3-D models of patient health concerns are displayed on electronic screens in exam rooms; in house diagnostic tests and the unique EliteHealth concierge-level services including house calls if needed, transportation to appointments, informative workshops with acclaimed guest speakers, and social event celebrations all included.
"EliteHealth is bringing medicine and the latest innovations, such as artificial intelligence, together to improve lives and keep patients living better longer," said Dr. Steven Schnur, EliteHealth Chief Executive Officer.
The EliteHealth primary care practices offer more services to patients than a traditional doctor's office, including:
- A care team that includes multi-specialty doctors, health and wellness coaches, nutritionists, dietitians and others.
- A health coach assigned to each member to help guide them through the complex health care system.
- A care team that spends as much quality, face-to-face time with members as needed to discuss all of the issues that can affect their health.
- The convenience of being able to walk into one of these centers without a scheduled appointment and often be seen the same day.
By engaging its patients and making them an integral part of their own care, EliteHealth is able to focus on the prevention and treatment of chronic conditions. Its 360-degree approach helps EliteHealth manage outcomes and the overall patient experience. To help prevent unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital readmissions, EliteHealth provides its patients various resources; at-home doctor visits and a nurse command center, with a network of paramedics, are available for urgent care issues.
"Patients desire to receive the best care, but too often, technological advancements are not targeted for the senior patients in a user-friendly manner. Most importantly, extending care into the home is what completes the EliteHealth senior care model. Office and home care in a patient centric model leads to superior wellness and the true 'golden years' experience," according to Dr. Perry Krichmar, COO for EliteHealth. "We are now using this cutting-edge approach to wellness in Venice ."
EliteHealth currently operates five Florida-based primary care centers located in Dade and Broward counties. Expansion will continue during 2018 taking EliteHealth's unmatched "senior wellness care" to offices in North Bay Village and several other locations nation wide.
EliteHealth's Miami-based multi-specialty medical organization focuses on disease prevention and wellness. Founded by CEO Steven Schnur, MD and COO Perry Krichmar MD, the practice focuses on the prevention of chronic and acute diseases.
