MIAMI, Jan. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Chen Senior Medical Center today opened a new location in Broward County, at 3460 North Andrews Avenue in Oakland Park, expanding its offerings of high-touch primary care to underserved seniors. The new location brings the number of Chen centers in Broward to five, and Chen also operates eight centers in Miami-Dade County. The South Florida expansion follows the 2020 openings of 15 new medical centers in seven cities by the ChenMed family of companies.
"We're excited to honor more seniors with affordable, VIP care that delivers better health," said Gianni Neil, M.D., market chief medical officer of Chen Senior Medical Center. "Our primary care physicians are experts at detecting and managing high-risk diseases, helping those seniors with multiple chronic health conditions who need it the most."
Chen doctors make it easy for patients to stay connected with the doctor who knows them best. They provide high-touch personalized primary care, giving patients their personal cell phone numbers for timely replies to texts and/or calls. This high-touch primary care, with early cardiovascular risk factor modification, has led to 40 percent lower mortality among Medicare-eligible seniors with COVID-19, according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
Other types of personalized care that Chen patients receive includes:
- Door-to-doctor transportation, if necessary.
- Unlimited visits.
- Walk-in appointments.
- Telehealth appointments.
- On-site cardiology, medication dispensing, imaging, labs, acupuncture, and more.
- Healthy lifestyle classes.
"We're excited about Chen's grand opening in Oakland Park," said Mayor Jane Bolin. "Chen is committed to transforming health care. The presence of this medical center will improve the lives of our senior residents and add value to our local business community."
According to Paul Lopez, regional market president of Chen Senior Medical Center, "We're looking forward to meeting the tremendous need for high-quality care in Oakland Park. We are committed to bringing seniors better health and look forward to growing to meet the community's needs."
