Job Description

Description

PeaceHealth is seeking a Nurse Practitioner for Community Geriatrics based in the Eugene community. 

If you are a Nurse Practitioner with a passion for caring for elderly patients, join our skilled, collaborative, and compassionate team of geriatric specialists in our Senior Health and Wellness Center program. 

We are seeking a Nurse Practitioner who has a minimum of 2 years experience working with patients in the nursing home environment as well as doing home health visits with frail patients.   

Why you'll love the practice: 

  • Innovative and comprehensive senior health programs 
  • Collegial team members!  Work with two nurse practitioners caring for patients in the community with support from 3 physicians and 3 nurse practitioners in the clinic. 
  • PeaceHealth's Gerontology Institute is committed to expanding knowledge, applying proven geriatric best practices, and spreading geriatric expertise throughout the community while improving access to care. 

Our programs include: 

  • The Senior Health & Wellness Center (SHWC), an outpatient Geriatrics clinic which provides comprehensive primary and consultative care for adults age 65 and older, now in its twelfth year of operation. Offering care management, counseling, diabetes education, foot care, Geriatric specialty consultations, memory and cognitive evaluations, an osteoporosis clinic, audiology, and medication education/management for chronic diseases, the culture of SHWC is patient and family centered with an all-in-one approach. The clinic emphasizes an interdisciplinary, interdependent team approach and partnerships between patients and care providers. 
  • Community Geriatrics provides Medical Directorships and care in community post-acute and long term care facilities to improve the quality of care for a very frail and vulnerable patient population. This service has been shown to improve transitions of care from hospital to nursing home, to significantly reduce the frequency of hospital readmissions, and to improve the quality of care in the long term care setting. 
  • Guidance and consultation for the Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Program at Sacred Heart Medical Center, University District.
