Southwest Michigan - Palliative care
Our hospital based, interdisciplinary Palliative Care team is seeking a compassionate, dedicated BE/BC physician to join our well established program. Our collaborative team includes physicians, APPs, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and chaplains.
Position is open because multiple providers recently retired.
This is an established program that is currently hospital based, but in the future the team would like to expand into the ambulatory side as well. The team works incredibly well together, they are very supportive. Ascension Health is extremely supportive of Palliative programs nationally. Ascension encourages palliative team members to network and collaborate.
Research: We are currently active in 2 pilot programs. Both have to do with automatic referrals- they are grant funded 3 years studies. Borgess is one of six Ascension Hospitals working with the University of Pennsylvania on these.
Team consults on 5-7% of all adult acute admissions. Average daily patient volume varies greatly. There are generally 2 providers on during the day. New visits can be as many as 3-4 per day, usually less than 100 per month (avg is 70-90 per month).
Service is open 7 days/week, primarily during the daytime. They rotate weekends (it is worked out in the group). Coverage is 8-6 PM. Call coverage in the evening- light volume. Physicians have decided that they are on call the night that they work on the service
