Prima CARE is a 160-provider, physician-owned multispecialty group, based in Fall River, Massachusetts, currently employing more than 40 advanced practice providers. We are seeking a Primary Care Advanced Practice Provider (NP or PA) to join the office practice of an Internal Medicine physician, full-time, Mon- Fri, without nights or weekends.
The NP/PA would see adult patients independently, under the physician’ supervision, assuming responsibility for patient care commensurate with his/her experience, training, and confidence. We are prepared to hire immediately and to begin the on-boarding and insurance credentialing so that the successful candidate can begin working as soon as possible. An experienced NP or PA is desirable, but we would consider a recent graduate with a strong background and an ability to work confidently and independently.
The NP/PA will be an employee of Prima CARE, but will function as a member of an office-based patient- focused team. The candidate must be licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, hold a valid Drug Enforcement Agency certificate, and hold the registration of a Massachusetts controlled substance. Compassion, maturity, and excellent communication skills are essential. Prima CARE uses eClinicalworks as its EMR and is an affiliate of the Steward Network. The practice has the full support of Prima CARE specialists and testing facilities, which are all on-site and readily-available. These include a full laboratory, radiology, cardiac and pulmonary testing, allergy, infectious diseases, etc.
Compensation is competitive, with benefits that include health insurance, malpractice coverage, a 401K retirement plan, a CME allowance, and vacation. Fall River is in a lovely part of New England, surrounded by city, waterfront, suburban, or farmland communities. Twenty minutes from Providence, 45-60 minutes from Boston, and 30 minutes from Cape Cod and Newport, Fall River is an attractive location with a multitude of choices for home and recreation.
