Do you want to make a difference in healthcare?

Landmark Health was created to transform how healthcare is delivered to the most medically vulnerable members in our community.  Our medical group provides home-based medical care to chronically ill patients, many of whom are frail, elderly and ill-equipped to navigate our overwhelming healthcare system.

Because many of our patients are frail and elderly, we deliver care primarily in the comfort of their home. Our Program is also offered to eligible patients at no incremental financial cost to them. We are not a fee-for-service practice; we benefit economically only if we deliver high-quality patient outcomes and satisfaction. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality-time caring for a smaller number of patients, giving all patients the space, respect, compassion and care they deserve.

Our model is finding success throughout the country; we are now the nation’s largest risk-based, in-home medical group.

At Landmark, our interdisciplinary teams collaboratively manage our complex patient panels. These teams are led by Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants, with supporting care provided by RN Nurse Care Managers, Social Workers, Pharmacists, Behavioral Health and other employed team members.

As a Provider, you will manage a small panel of high-complexity patients in partnership with an RN Nurse Care Manager. We value quality over quantity; at Landmark you will be able to invest more time in your patient visits than you are normally able to spare in a traditional fee-for-service model. Our home visits typically last 30 minutes to an hour, which grants you time to complete medication management, disease education, and collaborate with your extended Landmark team or with community clinicians.

 


As a Provider, you will be expected to perform the following activities:

  • Perform a comprehensive initial assessment for newly enrolled patients
  • Manage patient care on a longitudinal basis, with the primary objective of delivering proactive chronic disease care and significantly reducing avoidable hospitalizations
  • Diagnose, prescribe and treat within the scope of the Physician Assistant and consistent with standard of care.
  • Partner with the patient’s primary care provider and specialists to deliver integrated care.
  • Participate in a rotated on-call program for home-based patient support after-hours.

As a Provider at Landmark, you will benefit from the following:

  • Excellent compensation and benefits,including a robust bonus program, market-leading Paid Time Off (PTO), CME reimbursement, auto allowance, child care benefits, and more. 
  • A team-based clinical environment, where you will find mission-driven clinicians who are passionate about fixing our broken system of care.
  • An outcomes-oriented model, where more value is placed on high-quality clinical outcomes than on productivity.
  • Geriatric expertise – Landmark invests significantly in provider education, with a particular focus on geriatrics and home-based medical care. You will also be paired with a Landmark Physician to provide supervision as required.

  • Full-time employee status only.
  • Completion of Physician Assistant (PA) accredited program.
  • 2+ years of clinical PA experience strongly preferred.
  • Knowledge of clinical standards of care.
  • Current unrestricted PA state license
  • Access to reliable transportation to conduct patient visits required; if you are driving a vehicle, you must comply with all the terms of the Landmark Motor Vehicle  Safety policy.
  • Passion for geriatric care and patients
  • Comfort with conducting house calls.
  • Must be board certified at the time of hire or able to obtain board certification during the eligible timeframe (5 years following completion of residency or other training)

In order to work with potentially vulnerable patient populations and to keep employees healthy while caring for patients, all patient-facing employees of Landmark must provide evidence of the following required immunizations/vaccinations as a condition of employment: TB, MMR, Tdap, and Influenza. Declinations may be accommodated based on your medical history, an allergy or religious beliefs. Please immediately contact HR if you wish to apply for an exemption from our vaccination requirements so that we may determine if you qualify for an accommodation.

 

Full COVID-19 vaccination is an essential requirement of this role. Landmark Health will adhere to all federal, state and local regulations as well as all client requirements and will obtain necessary proof of vaccination prior to employment to ensure compliance.


We are now part of Optum and the United Health Group family of businesses, backed by the resources of a global health organization working to help people live healthier lives and to help make the health system work better for everyone.

 

As part of our hiring process, upon accepting an offer, candidates will be required to complete a 9-panel drug test. Due to our partnership with the Medicare Advantage program, our drug testing policies are consistent with Federal law.

 

Please be aware that Landmark Health does not solicit money or offer payment for job applications, nor do we ask candidates to email or submit any personal information over unsecured channels.

 

Landmark Health requires all new hires and employees to report their COVID-19 vaccination status.
