Recognizing the Need for Care
Attention Where It’s Needed
Barnes Healthcare Management Group, created in 2004, was built on the idea of resident care. Those facing the end of life deserve respect, not neglect. Unfortunately, care centers and assisted living centers are often left until last in regards to attention: residents are kept waiting for physician visits, paper work is left unattended, prescriptions go unfilled. Dr. Eric Barnes saw this oversight as a neglected niche in need of attention and took action.
While working as an ER physician, Dr. Barnes took a side-job with a physician who treated care center and assisted living center residents. Realizing how much he enjoyed taking care of the residents and the care center and assisted living center setting, he took over the practice and began Barnes Healthcare Mgmt.
As a board certified Internist, Dr. Barnes was trained in hospitals, as well as care centers and assisted living centers, learning the ins and outs of care center and assisted living center regulation. Dr. Barnes is trained in geriatric medicine, attends ALJ meetings and acts as Medical Director of multiple care centers and assisted living centers. He knows care center and assisted living center regulations backwards and forwards and understands what the staff and residents truly need to maintain a comfortable, successful working business.
Over the years, Barnes Healthcare Mgmt. has evolved to include several physicians (three former ER physicians and two former Internists) and nurses, providing a comprehensive administrative staff now servicing 30 care centers and assisted living centers and approximately 1500 residents.
Providing easy communication and quick action, it is Barnes Healthcare Management Group’s main goal to offer the highest level of medical care for care center and assisted living center residents.
As the practice grows, Barnes Health Care Mgmt. sees each milestone as an opportunity to further build the infrastructure needed to provide excellent care for care center and assisted living center residents.
