Join us in transforming healthcare!
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 system.
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.
Our model is finding success throughout the country; we are now the
nation's largest risk-based, in-home medical group, with operations
in numerous markets and states across the country.

Practitioners, and Physician Assistants, with supporting care
provided by RN Nurse Care Managers, Social Workers, Pharmacists,
Behavioral Health and other employed team members.
