WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS JOB

A multitude of healthcare companies claim they are revolutionizing the

healthcare industry, and leading the way to a better future of healthcare.

With all of those claims, it can be a challenge to distinguish who really

is doing things differently.

If you are a Physician seeking a chance to truly improve the way the

healthcare system supports our most fragile patients, this is the

opportunity for you. Our patient population consists of patients who are

affected by multiple chronic illnesses. The combination of these illnesses,

and their individual and compounding treatment needs, make navigating the

healthcare system a particular challenge.

For these patients, having the full scope of their healthcare needs managed

longitudinally by a multi-disciplinary team gives patients a central

advocate, and helps prevent unnecessary hospital admissions for a

population that frequently feels they have nowhere else to turn.

As a Physician on this team, you will travel to the patients homes. In

some cases, you will travel to Skilled Nursing Facilities or Long-Term

Care, in other cases Active Retirement Communities, and in some cases

independent homes.

This is a team that rallies around our patients. You can understand our

motivations by what inspires us, by what we celebrate. Patient satisfaction

ratings are important, yes. But more than that - patients whose health is

restored after years of struggle, patients who are able to live life more

fully and comfortably, and whose healthcare needs are met without months in

the hospital - these are the successes that motivate our team.

It takes a special kind of person to have a heart for this job, and these

patients. And, not everyone who has the heart for it can actually perform

well in the role. It takes a highly-skilled Physician who is confident in

his or her ability to make the right decision in a crucial moment. You must

feel comfortable making decisions autonomously while in the home, but must

also know when the patient truly does need additional care that cannot be

provided in the home setting.

This job is not easy. It pushes you to perform your best every single day,

and calls on you when the challenge is too difficult for others. There are

hard moments. You have on-call shifts. You are the person that the patient

knows they can always rely upon. And, in return, you have great reward.

You get to work at the top of your license. You collaborate with the upper

echelon of healthcare providers and clinicians. You change lives for the

patients who need you most. You are able to take the time you need to fully

understand the root causes of your patients symptoms, and identify the

factors limiting their ability to recover. You have a voice alongside those

truly leading change in the industry. And, you are fully employed, with

steady income that is not dependent upon patient quotas. You have

opportunities to earn significant bonuses, you have generous PTO, and much,

much more.
