A STORY IN HEALTHCARE
HOW IN-HOME CARE WORKS FOR YOU
Imagine you are experiencing chest pain and discomfort but your doctor’s office is closed. You call your doctor’s after hours medical line and are told to go to the Emergency Room. In the ER, you are admitted for observation, despite normal tests other than mild dehydration. On the second hospital day, you develop a fever and are found to have a resistant urinary infection. You subsequently end up with a seven-day hospitalization followed by a three-week stay in a nursing home because you become too weak to walk. You struggle to recover back to your prior state of health.
Now imagine you are a Landmark patient and experience chest pain and discomfort. A Landmark provider comes to your home as an urgent visit and draws labs in your house. The labs show mild dehydration. You receive fluids in the comfort of your home, as well as a prescription for pain and nausea medications. You now feel better and can stay at home, saving you from exposure to other diseases in the emergency room. You are checked on again two-days later by Landmark and are back to normal.
This is the Landmark difference.
MEDICAL CARE DELIVERED TO PATIENTS ON THEIR SCHEDULE
Landmark helps patients manage their conditions so they don’t interfere with life and daily priorities. Instead of spending time in traffic, at urgent care or in the waiting room, patients can be home with friends and family.
Life can be complicated. We can help patients and their family make sense of health conditions, understand the advice from other providers, assess options, and tailor a plan that works for their life.
COMPLEXIVISTTM CARE: HOSPITALISTS AT HOME
Complexivist describes our provider groups. They are teams of dedicated providers bringing high-touch, high-intensity, coordinated care to complex patients, in their homes or wherever they reside.
It is an integrated medical model that included medical, behavioral, social and palliative care delivered by doctors, nurse practitioners, behavioral health specialists, pharmacists, dietitians and social workers.
“When I first started seeing my Landmark provider the relief was so immense because finally I had somebody else looking at my medical care. It was such a load off my shoulders. She heard me, she listened to me.”

LANDMARK PATIENT AND CAREGIVER
“Before Landmark, it was a constant uphill battle to get care. Not much hope, not much care. Landmark is a company that takes things from where they are, to where they ought to be. It has really helped up with the stress and the worry to know that somebody else is there.”
