Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is
delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our
community. Our medical group provides home-based medical care to
chronically ill patients, many of whom are frail, elderly and
ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare
Because many of our patients are frail and elderly, we deliver care
primarily in the comfort of their home. Our Program is also offered
to eligible patients at no incremental financial cost to them. We
are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if
we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. As a
result, our clinical teams can spend quality-time caring for a
smaller number of patients, giving all patients the space, respect,
compassion and care they deserve.
Landmark, our interdisciplinary teams collaboratively manage our
complex patient panels. These teams are led by Physicians, Nurse
Practitioners, and Physician Assistants, with supporting care
provided by RN Nurse Care Managers, Social Workers, Pharmacists,
