MIAMI, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EliteHealth today announced plans to expand its innovative EliteHealth Medical Offices into Sarasota, Florida, to bring their unmatched "senior wellness care" model to the state's largest senior population. EliteHealth Sarasota will have its grand opening mid-September 2017. After numerous successes in offering senior patients VIP level medical care in South Florida, EliteHealth is excited to announce their nationally acclaimed services and medical care in Sarasota, Florida. The new office will be located at 1281 S. Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34239 in the Midtown Plaza area and will begin accepting new patients as early as July 24th.
"When you consider that Sarasota has the highest population of people over 65 years old in Florida and one of the highest in the country, and with wellness and preventive models becoming more scarce, EliteHealth Sarasota has an opportunity to become a national epicenter of senior care," said EliteHealth CEO, Steven Schnur, MD. "Our offices combine the newest medical technology offerings with a nurturing in-office experience, that is conducive to maintaining wellness. With a home care centric model, including artificial intelligence, our population health focus leads to decreasing needs for hospital and emergency room care: we win and our patients win, when they become well and stay well."
Built around the concept of "senior care centers," EliteHealth offices are leading the charge to restructure medical care for seniors from "acute care," to "whole-patient wellness and prevention." With Sarasota having so many seniors, and baby boomers who are aging into the Medicare system, EliteHealth's transformational approach to medicine is especially needed in the thriving city because of its demographics. The Sarasota office plans to offer 7,500 square feet of space that will include 8 exam rooms; a 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 to administer care at the Sarasota center.
State of the art technology including 3-D models of patient health concerns will be displayed on electronic screens in exam rooms; in house diagnostic tests will be administered; 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 will all be included. EliteHealth's extension into patients' homes with its 360-home care centric approach, including artificial intelligence, has shown a large reduction in hospital and emergency room care. This comprehensive approach to health and wellness takes a patients' emotional, intellectual and physical needs into account, and benefits insurance providers, physicians and patients.
"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 look forward to sharing this cutting-edge approach to wellness in Sarasota."
All seniors are eligible to participate in EliteHealth's medical office services. EliteHealth currently operates five Florida-based primary care centers located in Dade and Broward counties and are opening a new location in Venice Beach, Florida in addition to the Sarasota office opening in August.
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.
