Partners in Primary Care To Open New Senior-Focused Medical Center In Seneca
Partners in Primary Care will bring its innovative, senior-focused primary care model to Seneca, S.C. in June. The company will open five medical centers this year in South Carolina, including the newest location scheduled to open June 10 at 366 Market St., in Seneca, with a formal grand opening and community ribbon-cutting ceremony set for June 18.
Partners in Primary Care, a subsidiary of Humana Inc., is part of a family of senior-focused, primary care centers that deliver care to 35,000 Medicare Advantage patients. While a Humana subsidiary, each Partners in Primary Care center serves members from many different Medicare health plans, including Aetna, Cigna, Wellcare, and Humana.
Partners in Primary Care takes a holistic approach to health with the physician diagnosing and treating the patient. Care teams augment patient care by creating personalized care plans designed to help patients achieve their best possible health, which includes helping patients with social, behavioral, and financial needs.
The new Seneca Partners in Primary Care center will have close to 6,400 square feet of space, and will be staffed by nine full-time employees, including medical director Dr. Earl C. Wood III and center administrator Tonya Thomas.
In addition to the Seneca Partners in Primary Care center, the company will add four other new centers in South Carolina later this year: two in Charleston, and two additional centers in the Greenville-Spartanburg area, where the company opened four medical centers in 2016.
The Seneca Partners in Primary Care center’s grand opening is set for Tues., June 18, with festivities kicking off at 10 a.m. and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. The free event, open to the community, will feature tours of the new medical center, health and wellness activities, refreshments, entertainment, and more.
The new Seneca location is currently accepting patients at 864-362-3981, and when the center launches in June it will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
