Acute Care Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant – Adrian, MI

To prospective teammates,

I’m the medical director for ProMedica Charles & Virginia Hickman Hospital, located in Adrian, Michigan. I have been a part of Sound Medical Group for five years. I’m proud of the hospitalist practice we have built and welcome interest from advanced practice providers (APPs) with hospitalist experience.  I’d like to share more about it, specifically about our people, practice, and purpose, as you consider options:

  • We are a closely knit, established team of five physicians and four advanced practice providers, with the support of a clinical performance nurse. Our day team consists of two physicians, including one ICU hospitalist, one non-ICU hospitalist, and an advanced practice provider. Our nocturnist service is managed by an advanced practice provider, with telemedicine serving as backup for managing the intensive care unit.
  • Our hospitalists come from all walks of life and have diverse clinical experience, knowledge, and skills.
  • Our hospitalists routinely participate in hospital committees, including the medical executive committee, quality care council, pharmacy and therapeutics, and infection prevention and control, amongst many other hospital groups and ad-hoc committees.
  • We have a diverse background, and our hospitalists engage in various activities outside of hospital work, including travel, hiking, hunting, and volunteering. We regularly have informal team lunches at the hospital to continue to remain connected with each other. Our environment is highly collaborative and supportive.
  • We welcome the challenge of complex cases, working in a 9-bed open ICU.  Our ICU-capable physician does procedures during the day and is back up for the night.
  • We have team meetings usually once a month, but we also have informal/impromptu meetings to discuss urgent issues and have real-time solutions to problems.
  • Most of us like to spend time with our families or outdoors, so a flexible schedule is available, and we cover for each other when we’re out.
  • 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.
  • A focus on growth and development is a key feature 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.
