Palliative Care Physician - Community Based
Waukesha, WI, United States, 53188
ProHealth Care (PHC) is seeking a board certified palliative care physician, preferably fellowship trained with 3-5 years of experience. We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic physician to help build our outpatient palliative care program.
Prohealth care is the leading provider in Waukesha County. We have a robust palliative care team that currently consists of a physician, 2 nurse practitioners, a registered nurse, and a dedicated social worker and chaplain. The inpatient team is primarily based at PHC Waukesha Memorial Hospital and PHC Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital, with future opportunity at PHC Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin (RHoW).
We have an established inpatient consult service primarily managed by the nurse practitioners which allows the current physician to rotate clinic sites. This is an exciting time of growth in our healthcare system with a lot of support from leadership. This physician would work in collaboration with the medical director in the expansion of our outpatient palliative care program. We are integrated into oncology and are looking for the right candidate to help integrate into other disciplines, such as nephrology and cardiology. Currently, we are the only ones providing clinic based palliative care in the area. While our short term goal is growing the clinic program, with time we also hope to develop a home based palliative care consult service to partner with the current home palliative care nursing program.
The ideal candidate will have prior experience as a collaborating physician with APPs and directing a team. While we are looking for a self directed person, we need someone with a strong team focus who sees the value that every team member brings to the table. We want a physician who is flexible and willing to go to multiple sites when needed. Our program has grown by going to where the patients need us.
