Our Story

From Humble Beginnings

Adverse diagnoses instantly change patients’ lives. In 2003, Dr. Jen-Ling James Chen, Chen Medical founder, was diagnosed with cancer and given two months to live. He experienced firsthand the frustrations associated with navigating the healthcare system during his care. Dr. Chen and his family found themselves on the receiving end of patient care — fighting for access and coordinated care while Dr. Chen fought for his life.

Fortunately, Dr. Chen fully recovered; however, his experience with today's healthcare system haunted him. His struggle to access quality, empathetic, well-coordinated care fueled his relentless determination to turn the healthcare delivery system around. This led him to create the ChenMed model — an accountable and compassionate physician-led primary ​care practice.

Today, under the leadership of Dr. Chris Chen and Dr. Gordon Chen, the ChenMed model originated in our home state of Florida and has grown across multiple states serving thousands of patients daily. 
We are a privately held, physician-led organization. We serve our communities by transforming the lives of seniors and delivering better patient health outcomes through our values of love, accountability, and passion. Our value-based care model is designed for both our patients and our providers.
