Dedicated

The new location at 5131 Quince Rd.

According to Renee Hobbs, DSMC’s membership consultant, Dedicated Senior Medical Centers are a recent subsidiary of Chen Medical, a family owned group of medical clinics begun in the 1970’s.

Each center offers telehealth calls, medication services, onsite testing and screening, and door to doctor transportation. They also offer exercise, educational and social events.

At Dedicated Senior Medical Center, a primary care physician (PCP) is the leader of each patient’s healthcare team. They will see every patient once a month, either in center or “telehealth” calls, and oversee all aspects of their healthcare needs. The PCPs monitor health and medications, order on-site tests and screenings, and coordinate care with specialists. The PCP will keep all the patient’s doctors informed and coordinated.

For a tour or to participate in the two-week long opening events, call 623-1918.
