Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community.  Our medical group provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are frail, elderly and ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.

Because many of our patients are frail and elderly, we deliver care primarily in the comfort of their home. Our Program is also offered to eligible patients  at no incremental financial cost   to them . We are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality-time caring for a smaller number of patients, giving all patients the space, respect, compassion and care they deserve.

Our model is finding success throughout the country; we are now the nation’s largest risk-based, in-home medical group.
