Pulmonary Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant

Prima CARE is a 160-provider multispecialty group based in Fall River, Massachusetts.  We are seeking an Advanced Practice Provider (APP) to join our Pulmonary/Critical Care (“The Lung Center”) team.  This position includes office-based ambulatory care and hospital rounding on pulmonary consults.

Prima CARE admits patients to St. Anne’s Hospital (a Steward facility).  Our Pulmonary team manages St. Anne’s 12-bed ICU and we see inpatient consults and perform advanced pulmonary procedures.  There is a busy outpatient office practice with a lung cancer screening program, specialized COPD and lung nodule clinics.

The successful candidate must be comfortable with patient evaluation and management of common pulmonary conditions.  The work schedule is Monday-Friday with no weekends or night coverage.  Compensation will be commensurate with the practitioner’s experience, training, skill set, and confidence.  

Prima CARE is a thriving multispecialty group, positioned for the future of healthcare.  Our offices utilize eClinicalWorks for patient management, medical documentation, e-prescribing, and billing. Our Lung Center has excellent leadership and an enthusiastic and well-trained physician and support staff.  We emphasize patient experience, proactive management, optimum LOS, and readmission prevention.

The NP/PA must be licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, hold a valid Drug Enforcement Agency certificate, and a Massachusetts controlled substances registration.  Compassion, maturity, and excellent communication skills are essential.

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 minutes from Boston, and 30 minutes from Cape Cod and Newport, this is an attractive location with a multitude of choices for home and recreation.
