JenCare Senior Medical Center today opened a new medical practice in the Greater Chicago area, at 600 Sibley Boulevard, expanding its offerings of primary care to underserved seniors. The new Dolton location brings the number of JenCare centers in Chicago to six. In 2020, the ChenMed family of companies has opened more than 15 new medical centers in seven cities, including additional Orlando and Columbus centers also opening this week.

“We’re excited to honor more seniors with affordable, VIP care that delivers better health,” said Hina Iqbal, M.D., associate chief medical officer, JenCare Senior Medical Center, Chicago. “Our primary care physicians are experts at detecting and managing high-risk diseases. Plus, the high-touch and highly personalized care our doctors provide each patient truly improves health for seniors -- especially for those living with multiple and major chronic health conditions.”

JenCare 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 JenCare 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 JenCare’s grand opening in Dolton,” said Village of Dolton Mayor Riley H. Rogers. “Their presence will add value to our local business community and the livelihood of our residents, especially our senior population.”

“We’re looking forward to meeting the tremendous need for high-quality care in Dolton,” said Christopher Lis, Ph.D., MPH, market general manager, JenCare Senior Medical Center - Chicago. “This center is one of the largest of the company’s 75 centers located in 10 states, and we look forward to growing to meet the community’s needs.”
