Life Care Physician Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Life Care Centers of America, has placed Amanda Winters, D.O., as on-site physician at Life Care Center of Hixson.
Dr. Winters was hired as part of Life Care Centers of America’s initiative to place physicians in each of its buildings in Tennessee.
“Some of my earliest memories are of visits to nursing homes with my father, Dr. David Winters, a medical director at several facilities,” said Dr. Winters. “He would take us children and let us visit with residents while he did his work. Since completing my medical education, I have enjoyed moonlighting at the nursing facilities with my dad over the past two years. I have come to believe that it is the right fit for me, and I am excited for this ministry to be my career.”
Dr. Winters will work with the Life Care Center of Hixson’s interdisciplinary team, facility medical director and other attending physicians in caring for each patient. Her presence in the nursing home will enhance physician accessibility to patients and families. She will aid in hospital transitions and pharmacy communications, and being on-site will allow her to personally respond to medical changes or emergencies in a timely manner.
Dr. Winters most recently worked as a physician in internal medicine for Michael Goodman, M.D., P.C., in Chattanooga. She has also assisted her father in serving patients at Life Care Center of Hixson, Life Care Center of Collegedale and Life Care Center of East Ridge.
Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Winters is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, the American College of Physicians and the American College of Osteopathic Internists.
Dr. Winters earned her doctor of osteopathy degree from Pikeville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pikeville, Ky. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biology from Southern Adventist University in Collegedale.
She currently resides in Chattanooga.
