Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Jordan Search Consultants

This is a Full-time position in New Orleans, LA posted January 10, 2022.

This is not the typical medical center. This is Ambulatory Intensive Caring Unit takes care of the sickest & most vulnerable members of the New Orleans community— members who have been ill-served by the traditional healthcare system. This medical Center follows two key principles – We Build Trust & We Break The Status Quo. Where the typical healthcare system says “no” to patients, they find a way to get to “yes” for their members. When their members are spinning in the traditional health system, from ER to street and back – they find a way to change the trajectory of the lives of their members by addressing root causes: whether its working with members to take the right medication, or having enough to eat, or addressing housing instability. They serve a very special population of very high needs members, who have been failed by the traditional health system. That’s why this medical center needs to be different, and why their role as Providers is so different, special & necessary.
