Nocturnist Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant – Buffalo, NY

To prospective teammates,

I am the medical director for the Sound Physicians hospitalist practice at Mercy Hospital in Buffalo, New York. I have proudly been a part of Sound for five years and welcome interest from advanced practice providers (APPs) coming out of training or desiring a career change. I want to share more about it, specifically about our people, practice, and purpose, as you consider your next steps:

People
  • We are a closely knit, established team of physicians and advanced practice providers, with the support of a clinical performance nurse.
  • Our team comprises clinicians from diverse geographic, educational, and training backgrounds who are supportive and collaborative with other staff and departments.
  • We have a great relationship with our medical staff office; they are very efficient and helpful during the privileging process. We have multiple committees that our providers can lead or join.
Practice
  • We welcome the challenge of complex cases, working in a semi-open ICU with intensivist coverage during the day and E-ICU coverage at night. Our team is not expected to do procedures or run codes. We also have a closed ICU. However, our team is responsible for all the rapid response coverage for the entire hospital. Our critical care team is responsible for all codes.
  • 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. We all have a common goal and help each other by switching shifts with colleagues if someone needs a day off on their scheduled work week.
  • Expected annual compensation for this position is $130-148K.
  • 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.
Purpose
  • 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.

Buffalo, New York, is a great place to live due to its vibrant cultural scene, diverse neighborhoods, and affordable cost of living. Residents enjoy a rich history, with architectural landmarks, an abundance of parks, and proximity to the Great Lakes, offering a mix of recreational opportunities and a strong sense of community.
