He has recently joined Life Care Center of Puyallup, Washington, and at Life Care Center of South Hill, also in Puyallup, as an on-site doctor. “His presence in the building helps enhance physician accessibility to patients and families, and he aids in hospital transitions and pharmacy communications. Being on-site allows him to personally respond to medical changes or emergencies in a timely manner. In this position, he is serving as an attending physician to patients”, states the official website of Life Care. “I have been very interested over the past four years in the leading-edge health care delivery model that Life Care employs throughout its facilities,” said Flemming. “The true focus on the delivery of high-quality care, attention to detail, reducing health care costs and shortening length of stays in costly hospital settings is a model that should be emulated on a national level. The idea of myself moving from being an observer of the system to a participant is exciting for me personally and professionally.” In addition to his work at Life Care, he is on staff at St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way, Washington, and MultiCare Health System in Tacoma, Washington.
