Through a new partnership with East Jefferson General Hospital (EJGH) and Metairie Physician Services (MPS), JenCare Senior Medical Center will provide concierge-style primary care to seniors in the region, including some currently served by the community hospital.
JenCare currently operates four medical centers in the New Orleans area. The company is also building an 18,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Metairie that will be occupied later this year. All of the centers provide integrated care, including access to specialist doctors, on-site labs and medication delivery, acupuncture, and courtesy transportation.
“For decades, EJGH has been committed to high-quality, compassionate care in the region, and this partnership with JenCare supports that mission,” said interim EJGH President and CEO, Dr. Raymond DeCorte. “This collaboration gives many of our Medicare Advantage patients vital access to highly coordinated primary care and high-quality inpatient care.”
The company says the goal of this partnership is to improve health of seniors and reduce costs for medical care. EJGH has been designated the preferred provider for JenCare patients.
