Many organizations have a mission statement; we have a calling: to lead the way to a better future for health care. The Permanente Medical Group, Inc. (TPMG) is shaping the future of health care in the nation. As part of our team, you’ll have the support and resources you need to make decisions about your patient’s care.

GERIATRIC/SNF PHYSICIAN
Diablo Valley Service Area (Northern California)

We are looking for a physician with a passion for improving the quality of life of our most vulnerable portion of the population and their families to work in the Post-Acute and Long-Term Care arena. This person will join a stable group of five other physicians. Our post-acute skilled patients are seen at six contracted facilities located throughout the DSA service area (Pleasanton, Walnut Creek and Concord). One or two physicians are assigned to each facility to minimize travel. There are 7-10 admissions per week for each physician with an average daily census of about 20. There is an interesting mix of post-surgical, orthopedic and medical patients, usually geriatric, but not always. Procedures include some bedside debridement, joint injections, and replacing and removing PEG tubes. In addition, each physician follows about 60-70 long-term care patients in facilities from Livermore to Antioch. These patients are seen every month or two and scheduled around the post-acute patients. Generally, we are responsible for these patients from Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm.

Call is handled by a call center, and our physicians can staff this call center for extra time/compensation if they choose. Physicians carry Kaiser Permanente cell phones with secure texting. This position requires many overlapping skill sets and interests. Geriatric experience is a big plus, but our work also encompasses the skills of a hospitalist, palliative care, rehab, wound care, pain control, psychiatry and even some trache care, all with the support of Kaiser Permanente's vast network of physician colleagues – a phone call or face-time away.

TPMG is one of the largest medical groups in the nation with over 9,000 physicians, 22 medical centers, numerous clinics throughout Northern and Central California and a 70-year tradition of providing quality medical care.

WE OFFER:

  • Physician-led organization – career growth and leadership
  • Professional freedom
  • State-of-the-art facilities
  • Multi-specialty collaboration and integration
  • Technology-driven innovation
  • Unparalleled stability – 70 years strong
  • Mission-driven, patient care-centered and one of the largest progressive medical groups in the nation!

 

EXTRAORDINARY BENEFITS:

  • Shareholder track
  • Shared call
  • Moving allowance
  • Medical and dental coverage
  • Home loan assistance (approval required)
  • Malpractice and tail insurance
