Acute Care Nurse Practitioner – Mount Vernon, NY

To prospective nurse practitioner teammates,

I’m the medical director for Sound’s practice at Montefiore Mount Vernon in Mount Vernon, NY. I have proudly been a part of Sound for two years. We have recently adopted an integrated model with Sound Physicians in all aspects of care, emergency medicine, hospitalist medicine, and intensive care.

We welcome interest from physicians and advanced practice providers (APPs) coming out of training or desiring a career change. I’d like to share more about it, specifically about our people, practice, and purpose, as you consider options:

  • Join our tight-knit, established team of four physicians and two advanced practice providers (APPs) who operate in the Mount Vernon area.
  • Our team structure involves one physician and one APP during the day shift, with one physician covering the night shift.
  • The APPs on our team help manage patients alongside the supervising physician.
  • Our group comes from various areas in the Tri-state Area: NYC, NJ, and the Hudson Valley.
  • I actively participate in all medical staff meetings and committees, contributing to our shared decision-making and professional development.
  • As a Level 3 trauma community hospital with a legacy spanning 130 years, our facility offers a 15-bed census for medical and surgical patients, a 5-bed ICU, and 22 inpatient psychiatry beds, all expertly staffed by Sound Physicians.
  • Situated just outside the Bronx, we serve a diverse patient population with a low-volume ED yet high acuity, providing essential specialty services including cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, general surgery, urology, infectious disease, and podiatry.
  • Designated as a primary receiving stroke center and holding a geriatric accredited emergency department, and also functions as a department of correction receiving facility, with a 10-bed DOC unit – a distinction shared by only 1 of 3 hospitals in southern NY.
  • Adjacent to the main building, our outpatient clinic conveniently operates on-site.
  • We gather as a team bi-monthly, promoting a culture of support and flexibility to accommodate personal and outdoor pursuits.
  • Compensation range: $140,000-$160,000 annually
  • Benefits include medical, dental, vision, life and AD&D insurance, long- and short-term disability, 401k with match, paid medical malpractice and tail coverage, and annual CME allowance.
  • We put patients first. Always.
  • Growth and development are key features of Sound’s practices, where teammates can expand their careers here locally and within the broader medical group.
  • We’re a community-minded team and encourage our team members who want to contribute in and out of the hospital to help make our local community thrive.
