ChenMed Model Transforms Healthcare and Provides Much Needed Support for Seniors

As a part of their mission to revolutionize America's broken healthcare system, ChenMed's CEO Dr. Chris Chen and CMO Dr. Gordon Chen have released their first book, The Calling: A Memoir of Family, Faith, and the Future of Healthcare [Forefront Books, August 16, 2022], shining a light on how the healthcare system works for itself, not for its suffering patients. 

The Calling tells the story of how the Chens created ChenMed, a physician-led, mission-driven company that puts patients from forgotten and underserved communities first. The company recently opened its 100th center.

The Calling Book
In The Calling, Chris and Gordon Chen share how the family succeeded beyond their wildest expectations through a combination of determination, data, family, and faith. They turned what could have been a tragedy into an opportunity that will revolutionize healthcare delivery for years to come. The Calling will give you hope. Released on August 16, 2022, The Calling is available on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

"Our family knows what it means to struggle, to be poor, to know the battles people wage for quality care within the healthcare system. Now we're leading the charge in a healthcare revolution. Our system delivers improved health for less money and rectifies inequities at the same time. Through our book, we hope to continue to inspire change and transform communities left behind by America's current transaction-driven healthcare system." – Chris and Gordon Chen 

Chris and Gordon Chen will initially provide a complimentary copy of The Calling to Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) in New York, Texas, and Florida as they look to recruit doctors to help the organization grow to more needy communities. Eventually, their goal is to get the book in the hands of every PCP across the US.
