Hawaii Pacific Health Nurse Practitioner - Geriatric Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii

Job Description

Founded in 1921, Straub Medical Center is a fully integrated nonprofit health care system with a 159-bed tertiary care hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawai‘i. With more than 300 employed or contracted physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with expert diagnoses and treatments for more than 30 different medical specialties, including bone and joint, heart, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, women’s health, vascular and urology. Straub is home to the Pacific Region’s only multi-disciplinary burn treatment center. The hospital consistently brings new technologies and innovative medical practices to Hawai‘i, such as pioneering minimally invasive cardiac surgery and total joint replacement. In 2010, the American Heart Association recognized Straub in three areas of excellence: Coronary Artery Disease (Gold Award), Heart Failure (Silver Award) and Heart Attack (Bronze Award.)

Straub's Geriatric Medicine physicians provide ongoing care for older people, including home visits and primary care to nursing home patients. The department emphasizes coordinating services and identifying the support necessary to maintain patients in their own homes as much as possible. Outpatient consultations for memory loss and other specific geriatric syndromes are also available. Straub's Geriatric Health Services professionals are trained to perform a comprehensive assessment of patients, provide case management and outpatient social services, assist with applications for financial assistance and coordinate physician and social worker visits to the home or nursing care facility.

If you enjoy working with people and believe in warm, compassionate health care, you could be the next Nurse Practitioner in our Geriatric Medicine department. In this role, you will deliver direct patient care, including evaluation, treatment and technical procedures to a specific group of patients, as well as provide health education, referrals to other disciplines, and consultation with other allied health personnel. We are looking for someone dedicated and experienced, with excellent care and communication skills and a commitment to our vision of delivering the highest quality health care to Hawai‘i’s people.
