A Better Way
to deliver the care your residents need.
Helping residents and communities thrive.
Having access to high-quality, responsive onsite care in your facility can lead to better outcomes for patients, fewer hospitalizations, and lower attrition rates. High occupancy and happy residents equal a thriving facility and a healthier community in every way.

Why partner with Legacy Medical?
We offer medical director services to both Skilled Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities under the leadership of our president, a Certified Medical Director leading a team of highly trained geriatric clinicians.
A medical director is an important member of the healthcare team, serving as the clinician who oversees and guides the medical care that is provided. Additionally, this position plays an important leadership role in assisting facility administration to define a vision of quality assurance and provide care that is consistent with current standards.
A Certified Medical Director (CMD) has gone through specific training and a credentialing program focusing on the importance of clinical and management knowledge specific to long-term care, including infection control, residents’ rights, working with families, and more. They are certified by the American Board of Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (ABPLM) and are dedicated to providing quality care to long-term care patients and oversight of the whole team.
Studies have shown that quality of care delivered to patients in facilities with a CMD increases by 15%.
Serving as a role model, medical directors are responsible for the overall clinical care of the residents in the facility, providing guidance for appropriate physician credentialing, coverage, and performance expectations.
We help to improve the care of residents by providing education to staff and practitioners, acting as a liaison with the community, and assisting in the establishment of appropriate relationships with other health care organizations.
Our team applies clinical and administrative knowledge to guide your facility in providing high-quality care. With a panel of residents under their care, our medical directors set an example in seeing new admissions and follow-up visits in a timely manner, are available to administration and other providers to answer any clinical questions on a resident, and assist in the development of specific clinical practices to ensure that they are resident-centered standards.
We help facilities develop quality improvement projects and assist in providing a safe and caring environment.
As an employee of Edgewood in Fargo, I was extremely excited to see Legacy Medical expand their services to not only serve our residents, but employees as well. I have a small child and our family stays busy outside of work, so to have services offered right under the same roof as I work could not have been more perfect. Since moving to Fargo 7 years ago, I have not found a primary care provider that I have felt met my needs, truly listened, and took their time. When I met Beverly Gibson & watched how she interacted with our residents, I knew she was going to be the primary care provider I have been searching for. I established care with Beverly a few months ago and have received nothing but phenomenal care and attention. Beverly took her time, listened to me, and went the extra mile to find solutions for me. Not only that, but she followed up promptly. Her kindness is unmatchable. Thank you, Beverly for providing such amazing care!
