FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Midland Care Connection Recognized for Growth of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
The National PACE Association (NPA) has recognized Midland Care for their growth of the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). PACE growth means a higher quality of life and care, with fewer hospitalizations, emergency room visits and nursing home stays for seniors in the community.
PACE allows Participants to remain independent, while connecting them to a circle of care that includes social interaction, meal support, transportation to doctors’ appointments, home support, medical supplies and more.
“Our goal for PACE Participants is to help them keep living independently in their homes for as long as possible, “said Dr. David Wensel, Chief Medical Officer for Midland Care. “Through PACE, each person is an active participant in the care they receive and simplifies access to health care. “
Midland Care was recognized in the Emerging Light category for an achieved net enrollment of 10 or more participants in at least one month of the 3rd quarter of 2019, compared to a national average of a rate of three participants a month.
“We are thankful for our community partnerships. Their referrals are a key reason Midland Care’s PACE Program has been able to achieve the Emerging Light category,” said Dr.Wensel.
