Message From Our CEO

The last few years have made it painfully clear, too many seniors and patients suffering from medical illness or injury continue to experience a health decline caused by poor access to quality care.

Lightyear Health is working to address that by building an asset-light, virtual specialty care system for complex functional issues. Today, we offer physical medicine & rehabilitation, with additional specialties on the horizon. 


Every post-acute group we partner with becomes a “satellite extension” of our virtual health system, where Lightyear providers practice with a combination of telehealth and in-person care. Using these groups as our footprint, we will bring the world’s best specialty functional care to within 10 miles of 90% of the country’s aging population.

Lightyear Health’s Vision

Dream Big for Patients

We lead with optimism and execute with tenacity to build the world our patients deserve.

Stay Focused

We anticipate problems, seize opportunities, and ruthlessly prioritize for impact — always.

We're Better Together

Our whole will always be greater than the sum of our parts. So, we foster and model inclusion, respect, and candor.

Remain Students of Our Craft

We know that winning the long-game entails staying curious, sweating details big and small, and bettering ourselves at every turn.

The Buck Stops with Us

We are accountable. Standing by our people and services makes us stronger and more resilient.

What Makes Us Different

Who we are, what our mission is and our why. We know our area of expertise within patient-centric care better than anyone. We refuse to accept the status quo of aging. And, we put our patients at the center of every decision we make.

We strive for innovation and medical prowess in functional medicine for older adults.
