Let's talk about meaningful work, an important role and a career move that can transform your future.  WellMed was founded in 1990 with a vision of being a physician-led company that could change the face of healthcare delivery for seniors.  At WellMed, now part of Optum and the UnitedHealth Group family of businesses, we focus on prevention and the complete coordination of care for our patients. We partner with multiple Medicare Advantage health plans in Texas and Florida and look forward to continuing growth.  Join us and you'll be part of a team dedicated to patient-centered, safe and effective health care. Your skills and talents will make an important impact on our patients while you open doors for yourself that simply do not exist in any other organization. This is a place like no other and where you'll do your life's best work.(sm)
