Value-based Care = Better Patient Experience

What is value-based care?

Value based care is a model for healthcare services that focuses on prioritizing patient health and lowering patient costs. Its core focus is preventative treatments and overall wellness.

By focusing on keeping our patients healthy and slowing the progression of chronic conditions, we are able to help reduce future health care costs from emergency room visits and treatments that are “reactive” versus “proactive”.

Valley Oaks Medial Group’s mission is to effectively manage and treat the health conditions that effect the senior citizen population. Our health care providers actively listen to each patient, and work with them to create a plan that addresses their unique needs.

Our Mission

Our passionate providers prioritize the wellness of each of our patients with the necessary tools and resources to improve the quality of life for all of our patients.

Our Vision

At Valley Oaks Medical Group, we strive to redefine the way healthcare is administered through community driven preventative care and proactive treatment. By centering care around the patient, we can improve health and wellbeing instead of treating symptoms.
