Job Details

BC Physician - Hospice/Palliative Care - Directorship need - Metro St Louis

SSM Health at Home operates hospice services across four states out of 15 branch locations. In total, we serve approximately 500 patients per day with one-third of those patients residing in the St. Louis area.

There is a tremendous opportunity for growth in our St. Louis market where SSM Health operates eight hospitals. SSM Health at Home has three per diem hospice physicians and one physician with a dedicated time between the two St. Louis hospice branches. The hospice providers serve in the daily operational needs and provide for after-hours coverage. SSM inpatient units are requesting more assistance and collaboration in the medical care of patients at end-of-life, it is difficult not to have full-time coverage in the Medical Directorship role. The addition of a Medical Director for hospice and palliative care is needed to join the teams in St. Louis.
