Aspire Health is an innovative healthcare company that has quickly become a national leader in the provision of community-based palliative care. Aspire specializes in providing an extra layer of support to patients facing a serious illness through an ambitious palliative care program focused on caring for patients in their homes. Aspire’s clinicians (e.g., physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and social workers) are experts in providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness; helping patients and caregivers navigate the healthcare system; guiding patients and caregivers through difficult and complex medical decision making; and providing interdisciplinary support to patients and their families. Aspire currently operates in multiple markets and continues to expand its team of interdisciplinary professionals to implement its innovative program across the country.
Aspire is seeking to expand its team of palliative care physicians caring for community-based chronically-ill and vulnerable patients in Tennessee, ideally in both Middle Tennessee (Nashville) and East Tennessee (Knoxville, Chattanooga, or Tri-Cities.) The palliative care physician provides day-to-day oversight of clinical staff and ensuring the market achieves its clinical performance goals. The physicians will support the clinical staff by actively participating in regular interdisciplinary team meetings, teaching and mentoring staff through joint visits and other venues, reviewing clinical notes, and being available for clinical guidance. Most importantly, the palliative care physician will work with Aspire’s CMO, physician leadership, and Clinical Directors to set the cultural tone and to establish a highly professional and dedicated team of palliative care clinicians. The palliative care physician will be responsible for collaborating and coordinating care with the patient’s other physicians and community providers. As the physician grows within the organization and expands his/her professional capabilities, opportunities will exist for the physician to engage in business development efforts, quality improvement initiatives, research efforts, and other novel roles and responsibilities.
