What Makes The Vera Model Different?

Here are the basics:

Pin

On-Site Clinics

We make primary care accessible and effective by working with organizations to provide on-site clinics to their employees. These on-site clinics make primary care affordable and convenient so that patients are more willing to invest in preventive care.

Scope

Patient Focused

Providers and care teams provide comprehensive care that is centered around patients and their needs, not a system. Each patient is treated as an individual, spends significant time with providers, and relies on the clinic team to coordinate all of their care.

Brains

Behavior Change

We treat patients by esteeming them through empathetic listening. This experience unlocks the patient’s ability to think beyond the immediate moment, illness, or symptom by engaging them in a true two-way conversation. It empowers them to change their behavior in a lasting way.

Great Total Rewards Package

The Total Rewards Package includes competitive compensation and benefits. We want to take care of you so that you can worry about taking care of our patients. It just works better that way. Here are a few of the benefits you'll receive.

  • Generous comprehensive benefits package
  • Generous PTO and maternity and paternity leave
  • Access to Vera Clinic Services
  • Parking and transportation benefit

Reimagining Healthcare Together

Pioneering the future of healthcare is hard work. Everyone on our team leans in to achieve it. If you join us, you’ll be a vital part of this process. Here are a few of the things that you can expect:

  • An environment of empathy and trust. Even though the work can be demanding, you always have the support of your entire care team — onsite and beyond.
  • It’s challenging and exciting. Working without a clear roadmap can be difficult, but there’s plenty of room for ingenuity and creative thinking.
  • We expect effort. Transforming healthcare is hard work, but it sure makes it easier when you’re on a team with a shared commitment to the same mission.
  • We take the time. Our model empowers you to take the time to think through problems and come up with real solutions for patients.
  • We’re creating something new. Building something from scratch means there isn’t always a clear path forward. It also means being a part of something innovative.

Who I am and what I love to do

Vera Whole Health is a viable expression of who I am and what I love to do because I love being able to make an impact on the people I interact with and I get to express it every day I come to work. I go home satisfied knowing that I am part of a team that is changing lives.

As the Medical Assistant at the Belltown clinic I feel like I get to exercise the best of my traits to serve our Seattle Fire Fighters. During our exams I spend a little bit of time connecting with them by getting to know them and listening to their concerns. It is not always easy for our client population to feel comfortable revealing personal details about themselves but I help set the tone for their appointment and assure them that they are in a safe space where they can share whatever they feel without any judgement, knowing their privacy is protected and confident that all of their needs will be met. This is important so that the providers can accurately assess their risk factors and make sure that they are getting the most aggressive screens to ensure they are receiving the highest quality care that we can deliver.

I am inspired by the changes I see in our patients. I enjoy being a reliable support so that they can achieve their personal healthcare goals. Not everyone changes immediately. Sometimes there are drastic changes even within the couple hours that they spend with us. For example, some patients arrive to their appointments with some reluctance but then leave cheerful and expressing their gratitude for giving them the best experience they could have hoped for. Other times we may not see a patient for a while but the next time they come in they have made massive strides in taking control of their health. This inspires me to do my best because I know these little changes will snowball and hopefully spread to others.

My personal activities usually revolve around cars and spending time with friends and family. I have been helping my dad restore a classic muscle car- a 1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S fastback. He has had this car since high school, and it has been something we have bonded over and always brings me a lot of joy. We take the Barracuda to a lot of car shows during the summer and am always proud to show off the work that was put into it. Many of my friends usually have some kind of automotive project happening so I enjoy being helpful to them when I can as well. I also enjoy scary movies (and movies in general), Taco Tuesdays, frosty brews, video games and playing my guitar.
