Phoenix Children s opened as a free-standing hospital in 2002 and in the past 20 years has undergone tremendous growth. The ED at the main campus sees over 90,000 children a year and is the only free-standing level one pediatric trauma center in the state. Phoenix is located in Maricopa County and is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. With this growth we have continued to expand our division, our facilities and our training programs which includes fellowships in both Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Urgent Care. We are looking to expand our UC coverage and are looking for pediatricians, family medicine physicians and APP s looking to do solely UC or a hybrid of UC and low acuity ED shifts. We currently have 5 UC centers staffed 5p-midnight Monday through Friday and 10a to 10p on weekends.
Providers are responsible for evaluating and providing evidence-based treatment to pediatric patients within their scope of practice under the Medical Director s supervision. This position maintains effective working relationships and rapport with patients/families, other physicians, employees, and volunteers. The UC sites have the ability to perform plain radiographs, and labs include urinalysis, blood sugars, rapid strep tests, and rapid flu in the winter months. We can send COVID but not rapid tests at this point. In this role you will assess and treat acute injury and illness; perform procedural care including but not limited to abscess drainage, foreign body removal, and laceration repair with sutures, staples, and dermal adhesive and focus on efficiency metrics to improve urgent care flow, patient experience, and throughput
