"We have a moral imperative to provide affordable VIP care to even more Medicare-eligible seniors – all of whom truly deserve to have outstanding relationships with primary care doctors, who are resolutely focused on earning trust and doing whatever it takes to help each patient enjoy the maximum number of healthy days," says Christopher Chen, M.D., ChenMed CEO. "Our proven and highly scalable approach to care meets the nation's most vulnerable seniors where they are to transform health, including reducing hospital sick days by 30 to 50 percent."
