Technology, Convenience and Care + Wellness Center Deliver Top-Notch Patient Experience
April 20, 2022 – Conviva, a physician-led network dedicated to providing primary care to seniors, is expanding with a new 8,000-square-foot health and wellness center at Dania Pointe, one of South Florida’s most attractive lifestyle destinations.
Conviva Dania Pointe hosted a special ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, April 19, at 10 a.m., where Dania Beach Vice Mayor Marco Salvino Sr. helped to inaugurate the state-of-the-art facility. The site officially opened its doors on April 4.
“We are extremely excited to offer high-quality care to seniors in Dania Beach and the surrounding area,” said Isabel Souffront, M.D., lead physician of Conviva Dania Pointe. “Our obligation to the community is to deliver the best-in-class care our patients expect and deserve, and we’re accomplishing that with our easily accessible healthcare services and our strong doctor-patient relationships.”
Conviva Dania Pointe features on-site cardiac ultrasound and echocardiogram capabilities in addition to having nephrology, cardiology, and pain management services in-house. Embracing comfort and style, the center has ergonomic exam room tables for patients and ergonomic desks in all physician areas. The facility includes a large designated area for conducting personalized and confidential tele-psych services. For patients who are experiencing non-life-threatening, but urgent medical issues and would like to address their concerns right away, Conviva’s new center offers dedicated on-call doctors, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “On-demand” care options include, scheduling same day telehealth appointments or in-person visits.
“The goal is to eliminate as much wait time as possible—and help avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency room,” explained Dr. Souffront. “We are working to change that culture and mindset. We are calling patients who routinely go to ERs but may not have to, and ensuring they are able to receive the proper care they really need without having to call or visit an ER.”
The new facility also includes one of the network’s largest on-site wellness centers. The Conviva Dania Pointe Wellness Center provides various workshops and classes – from yoga, tai-chi and Zumba to arts-and-crafts projects and holiday celebrations. Conviva has also aligned with specialists for presentations on COPD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other topics relevant to seniors. And free shuttle transportation to the center is available to patients in need.
“Part of our seniors’ mental and physical health comes from getting out and socializing,” Dr. Souffront said. “Our new Conviva Dania Pointe Wellness Center makes that possible.”
Dania Pointe is a premier South Florida family destination and the perfect location for Conviva’s latest expansion. Situated on 102 acres, the site offers ample parking plus one million square feet of retail shops, entertainment venues, quality restaurants, luxury apartments, full-service hotels and more.
The new Conviva Dania Pointe is located at 137 S. Compass Way, Dania Beach. For more information, call the center at 954-962-9811.
