LOUISVILLE, Ky. — CenterWell Senior Primary Care will open three new senior-focused primary care centers in Louisville through mid-2023, marking the company’s debut in Kentucky and giving local seniors access to CenterWell’s personalized, care-team approach to healthcare.
With centers open in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, North and South Carolina and Texas, CenterWell Senior Primary Care medical group practice is one of the fastest-growing senior-focused, value-based care providers in the country. Together with its sister brand Conviva Care Center, CenterWell delivers care to seniors in more than 220 centers across 11 states, with plans to open another 30 to 50 clinics per year through 2025.
“The senior population in Louisville continues to grow, and there’s a major need for primary care that is aimed specifically at this segment,” said Nick Judd, president of CenterWell’s Kentucky market. “With our focus on underserved communities, we bring a new level of access to quality, coordinated care for seniors in this important market.”
Erica Savage-Jeter, M.D., divisional chief medical officer, said CenterWell Senior Primary Care’s team structure, integrating the work of doctors, nurses, social workers, behavioral specialists and other professionals, sets CenterWell apart.
“The care team approach allows us to learn more about the lifestyle factors affecting a patient’s health,” Savage-Jeter said. “For example, if a senior is having issues getting to the doctor or accessing nutritious food, a social worker can provide resources for transportation and food assistance. Behavioral specialists provide mental health services and pharmacists help patients understand how to take their medications and minimize medication costs.”
In addition to their healthcare offerings, CenterWell facilities also include community centers offering education and socialization for local seniors.
As part of CenterWell Senior Primary Care’s arrival in Louisville, the company gave $10,000 each to two local nonprofit organizations, ElderServe and the Lord’s Kitchen. ElderServe focuses on helping older adults live independently, and the Lord’s Kitchen provides meals and support to the hungry and those struggling with addiction.
