Landmark cares for this group-people perhaps much like your parents, neighbors, and elders in your community-those with multiple chronic conditions. Landmark Health is transforming how healthcare is delivered to patients with complex medical situations. As a national medical group, we provide home-based medical services to simplify care for those who need it most. Want to practice in a way that truly impacts the lives of patients with complex, chronic conditions? Imagine if you will…. You visit your small panel of patients in the comfort of their own homes.

You have the support of a collaborative, multidisciplinary clinical team who works in the field with you. And you do it all at no added cost to the patient. Sound too good to be true? It's not-and here's why. Landmark is not a fee-for-service practice. We profit only when we create successful patient outcomes and high levels of satisfaction for our patients. As a result, our clinical teams can spend quality time caring for a smaller number of patients. Our business model allows us to give our patients all the time and care that they need.

You will be paired with a Landmark physician for mentoring and supervision. Qualifications * <li>Completion of Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician Assistant (PA-C) accredited program * 2+ years of clinical NP or PA experience preferred * Knowledge of clinical standards of care * Current unrestricted NP or PA state license * Passion for delivering care to patients with complex, chronic illnesses * Willingness to conduct house calls * 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. * Must be board certified at the time of hire or able to obtain board certification within 2 years of hire 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.
