Medical Management Model
Oakwood Gardens Care Center has created a partnership with Capital Medical Extended Care (CMEC), a local medical group, to provide physician services to all of our patients.
Led by Dr. Chandan Cheema, CMEC is a multidisciplinary team of physicians and nurse practitioners brought on board with one goal in mind – to improve yours or your loved ones care while reducing the frequency of hospital re-admission. With their diverse specialties and extensive background in long term care and geriatrics, CMEC professionals will provide you or your loved ones with daily, high acuity care.

This partnership allows Oakwood Gardens Care Center to provide a level of medical care and service rivaled only by top hospitals.
Most skilled nursing facilities have a physician or nurse practitioner visit each patient once every thirty days. At Oakwood Gardens Care Center, we have a physician or nurse practitioner in our building almost every weekday and often on the weekends. The physicians and nurse practitioners are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. As part of our medical group, we have immediate access to a wound care specialist, physiatrist, and psychiatrist. All of this allows us to provide better patient care and prevent hospital readmissions.
