Welcome To

Welcome to Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, part of Beth Israel Lahey Health.

About the Job

The Neurocritical Care team at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center is seeking to grow by hiring an additional Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant.  We are currently a team of 5 neurointensivists and 9 Advanced Practitioners who staff a 9-bed Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU). This position is available immediately.

 

The Advanced Practitioner hired for this position will function as a primary critical care Advanced Practitioner in the NCCU in collaboration with attending neurointensivists.  The NCCU admits adult patients with critical illness due primarily to neurological and neurosurgical problems, including post-neurosurgical and post- neurointerventional patients.  Key duties will include history taking; physical assessment; development and implementation of diagnostic and therapeutic plans; interpretation of physical exam laboratory, imaging, and physiologic data; clinical documentation; and invasive procedures including arterial and central venous line placement.

 

The successful candidate will have received some formal training in critical care; be dedicated to the delivery of outstanding care to patients and their families; have excellent interpersonal skills; have the ability to function semi-autonomously in the care of challenging, neurocritically ill patients; and have enthusiasm for the teaching, learning, and quality improvement necessary for the continued development of our growing neurocritical care program.  Experience as an Advanced Practitioner in neurocritical care or another type of critical care is ideal, but not required. Research and teaching opportunities are available if desired.

 

Lahey Hospital and Medical Center (LHMC), part of the Beth Israel Lahey Health system, is a 390 bed academic tertiary care hospital with Comprehensive Stroke Center and Level I Trauma Center designations and is a major academic affiliate of Tufts University School of Medicine.  It is a physician-led, multi-disciplinary group practice of more than 500 physicians. Lahey Health hospitals are nationally recognized for providing high-quality care and all have been recognized as top 100 hospitals by Truven Health and Beckers’ Hospital Review.

 

Located in Burlington, MA, LHMC’s location just north of Boston is in an area that provides excellent school systems, abundant cultural activities in a world class city, and convenient access to the mountains and seacoast throughout New England.
