Additional Details

What is Member Plus Family Health?

Member Plus Family Health is a unique and personal health care practice limited to a small number of families on and around Bainbridge Island.

The practice was founded by Dr. Gregory E. Keyes, an esteemed family physician in the Pacific Northwest, who has been practicing on Bainbridge Island for over 25 years. Dr. Keyes has now been joined by Dr. Blain Crandell, who brings his wide-ranging perspective earned by medical practice in rural Washington and New Zealand, as well as in Kitsap County.

The “member-based” approach draws on the best of traditional, personalized medicine combined with the convenience of modern communication tools to bring patients greater access to doctors, a highly-skilled support team and individual medical information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The practice is centered on building long-term, personal relationships with patients that afford more meaningful dialogue about personal health issues and foster a greater understanding of how to optimize health and wellness on an ongoing basis. By taking the time to closely track patient health care conditions and create a plan for reaching personal health goals, Member Plus serves to ensure greater quality and continuity of care.

What is “Membership-Based” Health Care?

To provide for extra-flexibility in scheduling, 24/7 access to physicians, and longer appointments—in addition to more personalized care—Member Plus Family Health introduced the concept of a modest monthly membership fee. The membership is designed to be affordable to most individuals and families, ranging from a little more than a dollar a day to just over three dollars a day for a large family. Initial and get-acquainted visits do not require membership.

Why is Member Plus a good idea for families?

While personalized health care is based on each individual and treated in a confidential manner, there are several benefits that families can enjoy at all stages of life. With a parent enrolled in the program, children can become members for only $10 per month. But economics is just the beginning. In pediatric care, taking into account the health of the infant child and the caregiver are closely aligned. With a growing family, the tasks of coordinating exams, vaccines and interfacing with the public schools can be managed efficiently. College age children gain access to the Member Plus College Guardian Program providing telephone access to our staff from any college campus anywhere. Member Plus doctors also can make house calls, under certain circumstances, to treat every member under your roof.

What’s this about Electronic Access and ME+?

Member Plus Family Health has introduced a secure electronic Patient Portal we call ME+ to provide for two-way communication between patient and doctor, as well as access to lab test results and other charts or documents the doctor may wish to message you about. Have a question about your health or need to arrange a prescription refill? Access to ME+ and Member Plus is as close as your nearest desktop PC, tablet or smartphone. Now you can interact with Member Plus while you’re on the go, on the ferry, or on vacation, around the clock, around the island, and around the world.
