Partners in Primary Care to Open Eight Senior-Focused Medical Centers in Las Vegas
The company is hiring about 100 clinicians and employees for its personalized, senior-focused medical centers coming to the area
LAS VEGAS – June 11, 2020 – Seniors in and around Las Vegas will soon have access to Partners in Primary Care’s personalized, senior-focused health care. The company plans to open eight new medical centers in the area over the next year.
Partners in Primary Care is a leading and one of the fastest growing senior-focused, value-based care providers in the country. The company delivers care to 35,000 Medicare Advantage patients from many different Medicare insurance plans across the country.
“We’re excited to bring personalized health care to seniors in Las Vegas,” said Michael Holohan, Partners in Primary Care’s new Nevada Market President. “We believe that to most effectively address the health care of seniors, you have to help patients with social, behavioral and financial needs, and it’s an approach that has been embraced by our physicians, clinicians and staff across the country.”
Holohan joined Partners in Primary Care in early May. A seasoned executive with more than 20 years of experience in diverse health care leadership roles, he most recently served as Chief Operating Officer for InnovaCare Health.
In addition, Tracy J. Wakefield, MD, now serves as the Partners in Primary Care Chief Medical Officer for the market. Dr. Wakefield, a board-certified physician in Internal Medicine, brings over 27 years of experience in health care to the Partners’ team, and a deep passion for improving the health and well-being of seniors in Las Vegas. She most recently served as President for P3 Medical Group and, prior to that, was Medical Director at Health Care Partners.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the Partners in Primary Care team,” said Dr. Wakefield. “I have practiced medicine in Las Vegas for many years. I’m especially excited about the integration of the care team, like behavioral health specialists and clinical pharmacists, in our centers, which will provide our patients with an unparalleled level of care and personalized experience. I know we can make a true impact on the health and well-being of seniors in this area.”
To staff the new centers, Partners in Primary Care is planning to hire roughly 100 clinicians and employees. Available positions include, but are not limited to, primary care physicians, nurse
practitioners, center administrators, clinical pharmacists, community engagement representatives, social workers and behavioral health specialists. All positions offer competitive salaries and benefits.
As with its existing centers, each new Partners in Primary Care center in Las Vegas will be staffed by board-certified physicians and care teams who have been specially trained to treat the senior population. Care teams include:
A pharmacist who is embedded in the care model as part of the care team, consulting with patients and physicians to drive optimal drug therapy and support quality of care initiatives.
Registered nurses who serve as care coaches to help patients navigate their chronic disease care plans.
Social workers who consult on social services and other behavioral health needs.
Referral specialists who help schedule specialists visits and assist with record transfers.
A community center that offers free health and fitness programming, games and wellness activities that are open to anyone in the community with a goal to help seniors stay active and form social circles.
Partnerships with the local community-based organizations such as food banks, churches, and community organizations to support the social and well-being needs of patients.
The eight new centers in the Las Vegas area are planned to open over the next year. To learn more about employment opportunities or to apply for positions, visit
