About UltaCare Medical

UltaCare Medical was built to elevate patient care for Seniors. Often times this includes us increasing the availability of care by embedding providers wherever they live. We believe that everybody deserves immediate access to high quality care which is our “UltaCare.” As opposed to facilities that may have providers that “round” , our providers are onsite full-time. “Rounding” providers can’t spend the time needed with every patient. They have to choose which patient’s they see when they are onsite because they may only be onsite for a half a day, once a week. Our providers are on-site, on demand full-time. Patients are seen when they need to be seen and providers can spend as much time as needed, not 5 minutes because they have to get to the next patient because they are only there for that half-day.
