  • Overview

    St. Luke's Health System is currently seeking two full-time Nurse Practitioners to help establish a new Post-Acute Provider group working with a select group of area skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), to expand clinical capabilities and extended admission hours. Our hope and goal by creating this program, is to provide a higher level of much-needed care to these high-acuity patients, which will likely decrease 30-day readmission rates, improve the patients' quality of life, and improve the overall care for patients who are in a SNF. 

     

    The Advanced Practice Provider (Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner) is responsible for providing high-quality healthcare through the diagnosis and treatment of patients with conditions ranging from mild, to acute and/or chronic. The APP works under the supervision of a designated physician, and in collaboration with a team of other providers and staff.
