Northwell Health’s Medicine Service Line is seeking a BC/BE Internal Medicine or Family Medicine Physician to join our House Calls Program.

Addressing the needs of today’s chronically ill and aging population, Northwell’ s House Calls Program provides expert medical care within the privacy and comfort of patients’ homes. The House Calls Program serves patients in Nassau, Suffolk and Queens Counties who have difficulty traveling to doctor appointments. Our team of physicians and nurse practitioners provide at-home visits to diagnose, treat, and coordinate services including laboratory, X-rays and homecare.

This is truly a unique opportunity to use your medical knowledge and skills to make a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers in need. Our award-winning house calls program was chosen by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to participate in the Independence at Home (IAH) national demonstration of the effectiveness of home-based primary care.

The House Calls physician position involves travel in Queens and Nassau County. Board certification or fellowship training in palliative care or geriatrics is a plus. Must be comfortable working independently and in interdisciplinary teams.

Northwell Health is New York State’s largest health care provider and private employer, with 23 hospitals, more than 600 outpatient facilities and nearly 15,000 affiliated physicians. We care for over two million people annually in the New York metro area and beyond, thanks to philanthropic support from our communities. Our 66,000 employees – 15,000-plus nurses and 4,000 employed doctors, including members of Northwell Health Physician Partners – are working to change health care for the better. We’re making breakthroughs in medicine at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. We're training the next generation of medical professionals at the visionary Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and the Hofstra Northwell School of Graduate Nursing and Physician Assistant Studies.
