Compassion is all it takes to spark ingenuity, which is all we need to challenge the status quo

CareMore Health aims to provide care to your loved ones. It makes sure that its patients would have the assurance that they are in good hands and will receive the right care, which also gives profound peace of mind to them and their families. The company takes more time to truly get to know those it cares for because caring takes time. A visit to the doctor shouldn’t feel rushed. Each patient has a unique story that encompasses far more than what’s in the medical chart. It takes time to better know every patient so it can make a bigger difference in their health.

More Care by CareMore

A disease’s impact isn’t limited to its symptoms—it can affect daily routines, habits, and social connections. That’s why CareMore does not focus solely on treating health issues but aim to solve the root cause, whether it is health, behavioral, economic, or social. Every one of the company’s care centers is filled with stories of CareMore clinicians going above and beyond for their patients.

The Firm makes itself Available

Part of challenging the status quo is being a different kind of healthcare organization. One of its priorities is being approachable and easy to navigate for its patients. Hence, the firm is engaged with its communities and is always attentive to questions or concerns.

Team Work

CareMore patients can enjoy peace of mind knowing they don’t have to face disease or conditions alone. Instead, they’re supported by a team of clinicians who remain well-informed of their needs and whose priority is providing top-quality care. The team remains on the lookout for any warning signs of a health concern. At all times, the captain of this team is the patient.

Primary Care

Primary care providers serve as the frontline player in CareMore’s delivery of care. They are the first contact for its patients, providing the level of touch that every patient deserves. Present in all neighborhoods of the firm’s communities, they are the gatekeepers of the health of the organization’s patients. CareMore serves as an extension of primary care, supporting primary care providers with interdisciplinary care teams, Care Centers, and Extensivists for advanced patient care and chronic disease management.

Care Centers

With CareMore, patients get access to a host of extra services and resources centred on them. Many of these services are available at its Care Centers. Care Centers are one-stop outpatient facilities designed to give additional attention to chronic conditions, general health, and prevention.
