Mercy is currently seeking a board-certified Internal Medicine or Family Medicine physician with acute inpatient care experience to join our new and exciting Mercy Hospital-at-Home program in St. Louis. Missouri. As part of Mercy’s mission to transform the care experience, we are launching a new Mercy Hospital-at-Home (HaH) program, in partnership with Maribel Health, to provide acute-level hospital care to patients in the comfort of their homes.


Mercy and Maribel – Hospital at Home


Patients who have presented to the Emergency Department and have acute care needs that require hospitalization are thoroughly screened and admitted in the Mercy HaH Program. Once “admitted”, these patients are transported home to receive all the acute care services during the typical 3–5-day admission. This includes twice daily nursing visits, daily physician visit, 24/7 medical direction oversight, medication management, equipment, and all additional program support during HaH episode of care.


Hospital-at-Home Physician


The HaH Physician is a physician leader with strong acute care experience and comfort with providing high-quality patient-centered care to acutely ill patients at home. In this role, the physician will provide daily acute care to patients on the HaH services in both a virtual and in-person capacity and oversee the medical direction and overall care of the patients with support from the HaH interdisciplinary team. The HaH Physician will provide continuity between care settings, ensure home care and acute care protocols are seamlessly integrated in the home settings, and function as a lead clinician in the home environment.


This Position Offers:

  • Provide clinical care to acutely ill patients on HaH service by providing either virtual or in person visits daily depending on patient needs and circumstances.
  • Provide acute-level care as a key member of the Mercy HaH team including clinical documentation, treatment plans, medication management, and medical direction oversight.
  • Provide medical direction oversight to HaH clinical field staff and interdisciplinary team to provide high-quality clinical care and outcomes.
  • Provide direct supervision and oversight as a Collaborating Physician for dedicated Mercy HaH APPs.
  • Perform a daily patient care visit and all required clinical documentation, orders, chart review to meet the HaH policies and procedures.
  • A multidisciplinary care team to help identify patients that meet HaH criteria and provide clinical care to acutely ill patients
  • Facilitate in-home diagnostics, point-of-care testing, administration of medications and other treatments, patient monitoring, and any other patient needs as they arise
  • Participate with quality measurement and/or quality improvement initiatives to advance the work of HaH and other alternative care pathways, including advancements or innovations of the care model
  • Competitive, shift-based model (7on-7off)
  • Comprehensive, day one benefits including health, dental, vision and CME
  • Retirement plans available with employer contribution and matching options
  • Relocation package and professional liability coverage provided
  • As a not-for-profit system, Mercy qualifies for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)
  • This location is eligible for H1B sponsorship


About Mercy Virtual Care:


The first of its kind, Mercy Virtual Care Center began operating in October 2015 without a single patient in the building. Mercy Virtual delivers virtual care services to 600,000 patients across seven states, improving patient outcomes and access while reducing the total cost of care. Operating 24 hours a day and is staffed with more than 300 clinicians, it's often called a hospital without beds. The virtual care programs creatively combine people and technology to extend Mercy’s reach and services well beyond the walls of doctors’ offices, hospital campuses and other traditional facilities.


Your life is our life’s work 


Working with Mercy provides all the advantages of a large organization balanced by an uncompromising commitment to engage physicians in leading and designing patient- and consumer-centric care.  You'll discover a friendly and collaborative environment rooted in the belief that everyone deserves the most personalized experience we can deliver. What sets us apart is our unique approach, beginning with physician leadership at the senior most roles within our organization and continuing into our care locations, where physicians and co-workers share leadership responsibility and embrace new thinking and the most recent clinical and hospital innovations to get health care right for everyone we serve.


It is a continuing goal to advance diversity and inclusion within our Mercy ministry. We cherish each person as created in the image of God and believe it is our responsibility to strive for excellence in establishing an environment of dignity for all.
