Landmark Health CONNECT Medical Director, Skilled Nursing Facilities in Seattle, Washington
Do you want to make a difference in healthcare?
Landmark Connect is a division of Landmark Health. Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community. Landmark Health is a medical group that provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.
Landmark Connect extends the mission of Landmark Health by transforming care delivery for patients that reside in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and long-term care facilities. Landmark Connect embeds high-quality primary care providers (MD and/or APPs) in facilities as dedicated support to treat residents in-place. By placing primary care resources in facilities, we aim to deliver better health outcomes for patients, improve facility performance on quality metrics, and improve patient and family satisfaction.
