Key Benefits

What does it mean to you to have access to an onsite practitioner? Consider these advantages:

  • Choice. Residents may elect to see our provider or any primary care physician of their choosing.
  • Convenience. In any kind of weather—fair or foul—patients of our onsite practitioner rest easy, knowing they have access to medical attention, without having to leave the comforts of Quarry Hill.
  • Cost containment. Controlling healthcare costs benefits everyone—and savings, in the form of improved efficiency, fewer avoidable hospitalizations and reduced transportation costs, are the icing on the cake.
  • Expedient care. Having an onsite practice bypasses common economic and logistical obstacles that can make it difficult for primary care providers to see their patients promptly. As a result, assisted living residents who choose this option may enjoy a more swift response to emergent medical concerns.
  • Reduced hospitalizations. Timely attention from an onsite provider means fewer avoidable hospitalizations.
  • Unified care. Patients of the practice benefit from our team approach. From the practitioner to the nurses, all perspectives are considered in developing each person’s individualized care plan and in making sound medical decisions.
