Medical Director Next-Generation Intensive Outpatient Care Program

New York, New York
Physician


Job Description

Mount Sinai seeks a Medical Director for placement into a next generation intensive outpatient care program in Manhattan. The Medical Director will lead the development of a care program for families whose medical and psychosocial needs have largely been unmet. It will be a network of innovative practices, located within or near health system campuses that also offer pharmacy, lab, x-ray and physical therapy services. The care center is intended to not only deliver care to our community’s managed care patients, but to accelerate the innovation and adoption of value-based care models. 
                    
A New Model
By helping to build a better practice model, we help to build a better community.
 
This new primary care practice will do just that. The parties want to change the pattern, so it’s not about treating patients in a hospital but rather keeping them healthy and happy at home – the right care, at the right time, in the right place, every time – delivered by an interdisciplinary team of professionals.  We seek a medical director to lead this key transformation initiative and ultimately pave the way for a new model of patient care focused on population health management.
 
Key Responsibilities
The team-based nature of this practice allows the medical director to train and lead the entire team, including the physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, care coordinators, licensed practical nurses, health coaches, and administrative staff who work with patients and their caregivers to increase engagement and motivation.
 
You will ensure ready access to excellent patient care through top-notch customer service, better health outcomes, and lower health care costs.
 
Who We Are Looking For
The Medical Director needs to be a driven physician with a clear vision for how to advance clinical care that works towards the Triple Aim. This position is ideal for a results-oriented individual who embraces innovation and enjoys practicing in a changing and highly collaborative environment.
 
Requisite qualifications include board certification/eligibility in internal medicine, medicine/pediatrics or family medicine. Proficiency in Spanish a plus.
The Mount Sinai Health System is New York City’s largest integrated delivery system encompassing seven hospital campuses, a leading medical school, and a vast network of ambulatory practices throughout the greater New York region. Mount Sinai’s vision is to produce the safest care, the highest quality, the highest satisfaction, the best access and the best value of any health system in the nation.
 
The System includes approximately 7,100 primary and specialty care physicians; 10 joint-venture ambulatory surgery centers; more than 140 ambulatory practices throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Long Island, and Florida; and 31 affiliated community health centers. Physicians are affiliated with the renowned Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, which is ranked among the highest in the nation in National Institutes of Health funding per investigator. The Mount Sinai Hospital is ranked as one of the nation’s top 20 hospitals in Cardiology/Heart Surgery, Diabetes/Endocrinology, Gastroenterology/GI Surgery, Geriatrics, Nephrology, and Neurology/Neurosurgery, and is in the top 50 in four other specialties in the 2017-2018 “Best Hospitals” issue of U.S. News & World Report. Mount Sinai’s Kravis Children’s Hospital also is ranked in seven out of ten pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report. The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai is ranked 12th nationally for Ophthalmology, while Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West are ranked regionally.

The Mount Sinai Health System is an equal opportunity employer. We promote recognition and respect for individual and cultural differences, and we work to make our employees feel valued and appreciated, whatever their race, gender, background, or sexual orientation.
