About Vera Whole Health

Advanced primary care through managing both sickness and wellness at the convenience of the work site

Job Description

Vera Whole Health is a national leader in advanced primary care. Our time-rich model emphasizes empathetic listening and behavior change – rather than profit – as the key to whole person health. We go beyond the symptoms to help people achieve optimum social, psychological, and physical well-being. We’re also the first provider in the United States to earn a Certificate of Validation from the Validation Institute for sound population health cost outcomes.

When you come to work at Vera, you become part of a company who is committed from the top down to changing healthcare for the better. Our culture is built on empathy, trust, challenge, innovation, and growth. Join our health revolution and work with a team of knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated medical professionals who are as passionate as you are about improving patient health.

About Team

As a care team member, you are able to do what you love more fully and effectively, accompanying patients on each step of their health journey. With health coaches embedded in your team, you’ll also be able to provide valuable guidance through each stage of behavior change so that patients become empowered in their health journeys.

About Role

As a provider at Vera Whole Health, you are focused on treating the entire person, using time-rich appointments and empathetic listening to understand their needs beyond their symptoms. You are wholly dedicated to improving patient well-being through prevention, behavior change, practical treatment and chronic issue management. You have an in-depth understanding of modern healthcare and population health, how and when to use data, and developing strategies to improve health outcomes.

The Vera model affords me the opportunity to really connect with people on a deeper level and provide truly comprehensive care of their physical, emotional, and psychosocial needs.”
