Job Summary

About Us:  

 

Come reimagine care with us! We’re on a mission to change the way medical care is delivered around the country.

By supplying home-based medical care to patients who need it most, WellBe is changing lives by providing care wherever our patients call home. WellBe’s primary care services are delivered by a team of licensed clinicians in the comfort of the patient’s home. By combining the strength of physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, paramedics, and other healthcare professionals, WellBe delivers an extra level of support to the patients we serve in their communities. 

 

This high-risk population is typically underserved and challenged with access to care which we provide. To address these problems, we have elected to bring the care to the patient, instead of trying to bring the patient to the care. WellBe’s clinician-led geriatric care teams provide concierge-level medical care and social support in the home as well as delivering and coordinating across the entire care continuum – from chronic care and urgent care in the home to hospital to skilled nursing facility to assisted living to palliative care, to end-of-life care.

Joining WellBe means joining a growing, purpose-driven organization to deliver the highest quality care to our senior communities and to make an impact on lives every day.
