About Our Physicians
At Genesis Physician and Practitioner Services, our skilled and dedicated attending Physicians are our true leaders, and ensure the highest level of care, successful patient outcomes and compassion that we are recognized for.
Searching for attending Physicians who want to Make their Mark: If you’re an experienced physician — MD or DO — with excellent management and problem solving skills and a commitment to providing a superior level of care and outcomes, then we encourage you to “Make your Mark” at GPS. Those who succeed have strong communication skills, including the use of electronic medical systems to update patient records and notes. Finally, our model requires Physicians who can excel in a fast-paced, unstructured environment and are comfortable working in an interdisciplinary environment that includes collaboration with mid-level practitioners.
There is even the potential for the attending Physician to become a center’s Medical Director. This is an amazing opportunity to continue to advance the GPS model by working with the center staff and other practitioners to promote initiatives and objectives, while representing the goals and values of Genesis.
Post-Acute and Long Term Care
At our skilled Post-Acute and LTC facilities, Genesis Physicians and Nurse Practitioners often oversee patients that require AIM (Advanced Illness Management) and Transitional Care Management.
Many of our patients have received high level hospital care prior to admission and continue to have high-acuity needs during their stay. Our Physicians and mid-level Practitioners practice acute, hospital-level specialty medicine and care in our unique skilled nursing home environment. The average length of stay for skilled patients coming in for rehabilitation in our facilities is 3 weeks.
Our PowerBack model is a new and exciting personalized care program that utilizes the latest equipment and aggressive therapy plans to get our patients home as soon as possible.
PowerBack offers an incredible opportunity for Physicians to be part of a dynamic model known for shorter post-hospital patient recovery periods, fewer post-discharge setbacks and returning patients back home as quickly and safely as possible.
