CenterWell Senior Primary Care to Open 9 Senior-Focused Care Centers in and Around Phoenix

PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CenterWell Senior Primary Care will open nine new senior-focused primary care centers in the Phoenix area through early 2023, marking the company’s debut in the Arizona market, giving local seniors access to CenterWell’s personalized, care-team approach to healthcare.


CenterWell Senior Primary Care is one of the fastest-growing senior-focused, value-based care providers in the country. Together with its sister brand Conviva Care Centers, CenterWell delivers care to seniors in more than 215 centers across nine states, with plans to open up to 100 more such centers through 2025.

“Phoenix is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the country, and a good portion of that growth is in the senior population,” said Market President Daryl Young. “With our focus on underserved communities, we bring a new level of access to quality, coordinated care to seniors in this important market.”

Ravinder Dawke, M.D., CenterWell’s Market Chief Medical Officer for Arizona, said CenterWell is known for its focus on whole-person health. “We really focus on getting to know our patients,” he said. “Because of our attention to the whole person, we are able to spend 30 to 40 minutes with each patient every time they come in, which is two to three times longer than what they may be used to at traditional doctors’ offices. Our integrated care teams know that seniors often have a variety of physical, social and emotional needs, all of which affect their overall health. We work to address each of the factors that contribute to a patient’s wellbeing.”

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego welcomed CenterWell’s arrival. “Phoenix is home to the innovation and leadership of companies advancing precision medicine for the fight against cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We welcome CenterWell and its commitment to healthcare for Phoenix residents,” Mayor Gallego said. “It is great to have this focused attention on healthcare, behavioral health, and chronic disease, which lead to longer lives in comfort for older adults and seniors.”

All new CenterWell Senior Primary Care locations in Arizona will be staffed by board-certified physicians, nurses and behavioral health specialists, and patients will also have access to clinical pharmacists and social workers who have been specially trained to treat the senior population. CenterWell is planning to hire around 100 employees in Arizona, and all positions offer competitive salaries and benefits.
