Shell Point Medical Team

While it is rare for most retirement communities to have a single onsite staff physician, Shell Point has a medical team of six physicians along with four nurse practitioners who work exclusively with residents. These healthcare professionals have the opportunity to spend quality time with each individual to get a complete understanding of his/her unique situation.
