At ArchWell, the patient-to-doctor ratio is well below the national average, ensuring doctors have the time they need with each individual patient to solve their health challenges. Additionally, the doctors and care team are specifically trained to care for seniors who have more challenging health conditions than the general population, and a higher rate of chronic conditions.

Patients at ArchWell Health will receive care that is well coordinated, as compared to the fragmented care that many seniors experience today, according to the company.

“The healthcare needs of the senior population are often multi-faceted, so our goal is to establish longterm relationships to monitor and respond to the physical and emotional needs of our patients,” says Carl Whitmer, co-founder, and CEO of ArchWell Health. “At each ArchWell Health center, our primary care providers will be supported by social, nutritional and behavioral health services teams to ensure the care our patients may need; allowing our patients to achieve the best quality of life physically, mentally and emotionally.”
