Physicians Development Group was founded by a physician, Dr. Greg Lakin, a family practice doctor who specializes in senior care. Along with Dr. Lakin is a team which combines years of experience in healthcare and architecture who have managed and designed facilities built around the wellness of all patients. These facilities are designed to be comfortable for the residents and inviting to family members. To accomplish this, the financial and operating models are designed around involving healthcare providers in the operating entity and the physical facility to encourage them to have more control of patient outcomes. PDG’s transitional care units are what make Physicians Development Group both unique and successful in providing wellness programs to the senior community. This approach enables patients to be followed much more closely and helps to eliminate unnecessary readmissions to hospitals.
