Overview

Physician Solutions Group is the premier provider of doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants for a network of LIFE programs in Pennsylvania.

 

Physicians at LIFE programs are able to spend quality time with their patients with minimal restrictions on amounts of patients that need to be seen per day. The physician is directly supported by nurse practitioners, physician assistants, RNs, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, social workers, dietitians, and a full administrative staff. We have a dedicated marketing team so the physician can focus on the patients and not growing the census.

 

The physician has a direct impact on the health and wellness of the elderly members of their community. There is an emphasis on getting to know the patients and their families. The physician gets to help the patients remain happy, healthy, and thriving in their own homes for as long as possible.

 

As a leader in the community, the physician is encouraged to build relationships with other providers in the area. This ensures continuity of care for the patients across their providers and cultivates trust in the surrounding medical community.

 

Benefits

  • Salaried position
  • Relocation assistance available
  • Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. schedule with minimal on-call
  • Support network of other physicians
  • Vacation coverage
  • Dedicated time off for CMEs

Responsibilities

Daily responsibilities include:

  • Performing comprehensive histories and physicals on new patients to determine the best course of care, while setting specific goals based on patient wishes, actions and prognosis
  • Performing interval histories and physicals on existing patients, completed in accordance with approved care schedules or as needed due to changes in medical status
  • Evaluating and treatment of episodic illnesses
  • Working with other interdisciplinary team members to ensure proper care in all areas
  • Making specialist referrals for medical needs beyond the immediate scope of expertise or when a second opinion is required/requested
  • Admitting and/or co-managing members in the hospital, providing care in conjunction with the facility’s resident physicians/specialists
  • Coordinating discharge plans for members leaving hospitals or other specialized care facilities
  • Effectively communicating with other LIFE program staff, patients, and external family/caregivers to determine extended treatment plans and educate stakeholders accordingly  

Qualifications

This role requires a versatile, passionate physician with deep knowledge of and compassion for the elderly. The position is very unique within the medical community, from its interdisciplinary approach to member care to the innovative, integrated approach practiced at all centers. The LIFE Center physician will have significant medical oversight and, moreover, the ability to change existing notions of eldercare in America—and, as such, Physician Solutions Group seeks a truly pioneering leader.

 

All applicants should be graduates of accredited medical schools with a valid license to practice medicine in Pennsylvania. A fellowship in geriatrics is preferred. Candidates should have a minimum of one year’s experience working specifically with a frail/elderly population, plus proven clinical leadership skills and the desire to work in a fast paced team environment.
