Posted on Friday, November 3, 2023

Nice to meet you, we’re Vesta Healthcare.

Vesta Healthcare is a specialized medical group focused today on aging adults with long-term home care needs. We help these individuals live happier, healthier lives by partnering with their aides and caregivers, as a key part of the care team. We use a combination of virtual care, home-based and mobile technologies, data integrations and partnerships with home care agencies to make the home an integrated setting of care with patients, and their Caregivers at the center.

Vesta is the Roman name for the goddess of home, hearth and family. She is the caregiver. Often unseen yet greatly revered, she puts others' needs ahead of her own, keeping the hearth warm so the home and family can function.

We see Caregivers and recognize the power and potential they embody. More than just assistance, Caregivers are eyes, ears and hands in the home. Caregivers play the role of Doctor, Nurse, Pharmacist, EMT and more, but without support or guidance. That is where Vesta comes in. Our program provides Caregivers with a personalized clinical team in their pocket. Our team links Caregivers to the people they care for and the other providers involved in their care. It’s an insurance covered benefit, so it’s available to most adults with Caregivers free of charge to them.

We seek team members who are passionate about making home the best place it can be for people with home care needs and see the important role Caregivers play. Our team members are collaborative data-driven optimists who always focus on doing what’s best for patients and their caregivers. We see ourselves as being here to improve the quality of life for caregivers and care recipients, allowing them to focus on the important things (like going to the mall with their grandkids).

The ideal teammate would be...

An Advanced Practice Provider (Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant) who delivers in-home clinical services to patients with the support of an integrated multidisciplinary care team.

This is an ideal position for a clinician who seeks an opportunity for “top of license” practice, enjoys a collaborative team-based approach to care, and is excited to engage in developing and nurturing our innovative, value-based clinical model focused on caring for patients with complex needs who are inadequately served by traditional healthcare delivery systems.
