The Valley Health System and Vera Whole Health have partnered to open two primary care centers beginning in April 2021. The Valley Health Care Centers powered by Vera Whole Health bring the outcomes-driven Vera advanced primary care (APC) model to Valley’s clinically integrated delivery network, boosting access, improving member experience and delivering better health outcomes.
The Valley Health Care Centers powered by Vera Whole Health will be available to contracted employer workforces and payer members. Vera’s nationally recognized APC model helps people achieve optimum social, psychological and physical well-being, while driving down the overall cost of care. The model delivers one-to-one population health at scale, from pediatrics to senior care. The primary care team provides acute, chronic and preventive care combined with clinically integrated health coaching.
"The Vera partnership with The Valley Health System dramatically expands primary care access, simplifies the management of care, and legitimizes the value of primary care as a critical piece of the entire delivery system," said Ryan Schmid, CEO of Vera. "The Valley Health System is a trusted community healthcare provider, and now through this partnership, we can bring increased value to employer workforces and payer members."
"The availability of primary medical care is the foundation of a healthy community because it focuses on prevention and managing day-to-day health concerns," said Karla Perez, Regional Vice President of The Valley Health System. "Primary care providers play a vital role in helping their patients manage health conditions that could escalate into medical emergencies if not property diagnosed, treated and monitored. Our care centers will play a key role in the Southern Nevada health community."
The Valley Health Care Centers powered by Vera Whole Health will care for members and their families at two locations: 100 Green Valley Parkway, Suite 235, opening in March 2021; and 331 N. Buffalo Parkway, Suite 100, opening in May 2021. These care centers will serve members with appointments from contracted employer groups and payer organizations.
