One-Stop Health Centers That Focus on Patients
Our commitment to providing superior health care to seniors. Our Medicare-friendly approach. Our best-quality doctors and staff. These are just a few of the things that set us apart from other health care providers in the industry.
JenCare Neighborhood Medical Centers are family-owned and committed to delivering superior health care to seniors. We believe in listening to and communicating with our patients in order to deliver care with respect and dignity – treating each patient as though they were a member of our own family.
When Dr. Jenling James Chen developed our model, he not only wanted to provide health care with kindness and empathy – he wanted to offer cutting-edge technologies and tools to make the patient experience better and preserve his patients’ quality of life.
With that objective in mind, JenCare Neighborhood Medical Centers uses the most advanced technology available. Electronic Medical Records offer total transparency with specialists and hospitals, and a Life Card patient identification system offers easy check-in at appointments and current medical information on your ID card which can even save your life in the event of an emergency. Our centers also use vital diagnostic equipment that saves patients trips to the hospital for tests, and we offer shuttles to transport our patients to and from our facilities.
We believe that these tools, our commitment to the patient experience and our physician-led culture can lead the way in an increasingly difficult-to-navigate healthcare environment – to clarity, family, health and peace of mind.
Dr. Jenling James Chen had been a doctor for many years when he founded Chen Medical Centers and JenCare Neighborhood Medical Centers. Inspired by his own experience with life-threatening illness, he set out to offer superior health care with a difference.
In 2004, Dr. Chen was diagnosed with cancer and given only two months to live. He and his family saw firsthand what it was like to be on the receiving end of patient care – how hard it was to fight for access to quality care while fighting for your life.
Dr. Chen recovered, defying his original diagnosis, and knew that he had to do something about the frustrations he experienced with the current health care system. That’s why he created ChenMed – to turn the health care system around for the patients who need it most – seniors – by offering quality, empathetic, well-coordinated care in an accountable and compassionate physician-led culture.
As of 2012, ChenMed has eight locations in Florida, and JenCare has five locations in Virginia, with plans for additional expansion throughout 2012. The more centers we build, the more access seniors will have to quality health care.
