Celebrating Expansion and Whole Person Health at Visions HealthCare
Visions HealthCare, an integrative healthcare organization that began in Wellesley, in 2008, and opened a state-of-the-art Dedham facility last year, continues to expand. In fact, the new Needham practice more than doubles the size of the original location.
Patient visits at Visions have increased by 50 percent in the last year, and practitioners are seeing an average of 110 new patients each month. As the volume of new patients grows, the number of providers and employees has followed suit, creating new jobs and opportunities in the area. The Needham facility is located in the N2 Innovation Corridor, a public-private initiative designed to foster growth for technology companies, start-ups and other innovators.
The first Visions facility was opened based on the belief that traditional medicine can achieve better results with a broader approach to patient health. Accepting most health insurance plans, Visions is committed to longer patient visits that address the physical, biomedical, emotional, energetic and spiritual elements of patients’ lives. Western medicine is augmented by offerings in nutrition, osteopathy and acupuncture, and key practice areas include primary care, allergy, sports medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and physical therapy.
“When we founded Visions, we envisioned a community of expert providers dedicated to treating the person, not the ailment,” says CEO and co-founder Dr. Edward Levitan. “It’s rewarding to see that dream come to fruition, validated by the outpouring of positive feedback from our incredible staff, colleagues in the business community, referral sources, neighbors and, most importantly, patients.”
Levitan says that Visions’ goal is to foster fundamental changes that allow patients to live healthy, vibrant lives well into old age. He and co-founder Dr. Wendie Trubow ensure that their practitioners work as an integrated team in both traditional and cutting-edge treatments. Visions has nearly 80 employees, including 18 physicians, along with acupuncturists, nutritionists and professionals in chiropractic care and physical therapy.
The Dedham location, which opened in February 2013, was designed by LEED-certified architects and interior designers to minimize potential irritants and allergens. Environmentally friendly products are used throughout the facility wherever possible, and the building is free of volatile organic compound paints and stains. The facility also boasts a multipurpose room for classes in yoga, meditation and tai chi.
Visions’ new Needham location features 7,700 square feet of office space and provides the same approach and breadth of services. Wellesley providers have transferred their practices to the Needham office, ensuring that patients receive continued quality of care, as well as access to additional programs and services.
