Coordinated-Regional-Care: The Smart Way to Delivery Healthcare

The current American healthcare system is a confusing maze for many people. Too often, physicians and hospitals operate in silos and are at odds with health plans. Patients are left on their own to find specialists, schedule and keep appointments, and make important decisions about their care.

For people with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, obesity and COPD, navigating through the maze can be almost impossible. That is especially true when conditions are aggravated by mental illness.

The result is missed physician appointments, failure to follow prescription drug regimens, and an over-reliance on hospital emergency rooms for routine care. This is not only unhealthy for patients, it’s also very wasteful—and it drives up healthcare costs for everyone.

That’s why we developed our Coordinated-Regional-Care model. Instead of working in isolation, our physicians, affiliated medical groups and hospitals collaborate closely and in partnership with health plans to give our patients and their families highly coordinated, personalized care.

In 2018, 10 Prospect Medical hospitals were the recipients of the distinguished Healthgrades awards for clinical specialty care and patient safety.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Prospect Medical Holdings in July 2017.

    Interview

    The corporate recruiter contacted me. I had an interview the following week. First person I interviewed was quick the second was an attorney who forgot about the interview and had no idea of the job I was applying for or what I would be doing.

    They offered me the position I acccepted and gave my 2 week notice. I completed the drug test and application for background check.

    On the last day of the 2 week notice I gave to my current employer they called to tell me they are rescinding the offer because the reference check and background check were not completed. Huh?

    I know for a fact 2 of the 3 references were called and the third never received a call. As for the background check, I have no knowledge of what was not completed. I was never called for questions.

    Don't work here !
