  • Overview

    St. Luke's Clinic - Spine Care is currently seeking a full-time Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant to work in our walk-in Spine Care Clinic in MeridianAbout 80% of Americans will experience lower back pain at some point in their lives, and 20% of these people will develop chronic pain within the first year if not treated appropriately. Currently, Idaho ranks 3rd for spinal surgery per capita. In 2016, The Center for Spine Wellness chose to align itself closer to the system by changing its name to St. Luke's Clinic - Spine Care (SLSC). SLSC allows patient costs to be minimal, while still receiving the highest level evaluation of back pain. 

     

    This position would allow St. Luke's Spine Care to expand the hours and access for patients. We currently have two other full-time Physician Assistants in the clinic, and three part-time Physicians. We are preferrably looking for candidates who have experience working within an Ortho and/or Neuro setting.
