Standing out by reaching out into the community to deliver better care.
We cannot emphasize it enough; we believe our senior population deserves the best care we are able to offer, including prompt assessments, appropriate and timely follow-ups, and a plan of care designed to meet their short term and long range goals. It's a goal every employee in the company shares.
Our Providers are drawn to geriatrics, where decisions are individualized and less protocol driven. Geriatric care is both a science and an art. Providers have to think outside of the box on a daily basis. We work not only with the patient, but (importantly) with the family unit as well. Compassionate communication is key to successfully managing patient care in this environment.
To that end, we understand that a vital component of delivering effective care in this environment is for all members of the healthcare team to take into account a patient's (and their family's) wishes. That's what makes our Collaborative Care approach so valuable. We do our best to ensure that all Healthcare Professionals in the PHS family, as well as our corporate partners at SNFs, long-term care facilities, and hospitals, work as an interdisciplinary team to provide the highest level of compassionate and thoughtful care possible for our seniors.
