About us:

Fallon Health is a company that cares. We prioritize our members--always-making sure they get the care they need and deserve. Founded in 1977 in Worcester, Massachusetts, we deliver equitable, high-quality coordinated care and are continually rated among the nation’s top health plans for member experience, service, and clinical quality.


Fallon Health’s Summit ElderCare® is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly–PACE for short. PACE, an alternative to nursing home care, is a program that helps people 55 and older continue living safely at home. At Fallon Health, we believe our individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression and unique capabilities allow us to better serve our members. We embrace and encourage differences in age, race, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and other characteristics that make people unique. 


Today, guided by our mission of improving health and inspiring hope, we strive to be the leading provider of government-sponsored health insurance programs—including Medicare, Medicaid, and PACE— in the region. 


Position Overview:
Our Physicians have flexibility to devote as much time as needed for the clinical and social needs of our participants and their caregivers to provide individualized quality care by a team of geriatric care professionals who work together with participants and caregivers to address each individual's specific needs. This team of professionals is an essential component of the Summit ElderCare PACE program.

The team uses a collaborative approach to care planning and is called the Interdisciplinary Team (IDT). The IDT is comprised of Providers (MD/DO and NP/PA), Nurses, Social Workers, Physical and Occupational Therapists, Dieticians, Health Aides, Recreation staff, Home Care and Transportation Coordinators and Site Administrator. This approach to care is the gold standard for complex and frail older adults who wish to avoid nursing home placement.
