Akron Children's Hospital Pediatrics (ACHP) brings pediatric primary care for babies, children and teens to many northeast Ohio communities through our 35 pediatric offices. Join our established Liberty practice with 1 experienced pediatrician and 2 experienced nurse practitioners as the practice continues to grow.
This is an outpatient opportunity with after-hours call and Saturday office hours shared between providers from surrounding offices. Calls only reach the physician after being screened by our excellent after-hours nurse triage phone line which handles more than 90% of the calls. The office is open a half day on Saturday mornings which are rotated between all of the providers in surrounding offices. This is a busy existing practice, so we welcome new graduates or established providers to step into a practice that they can continue to develop and grow.
Our offices follow standard hospital-based policies, while retaining the local culture of each practice. Our physicians enjoy the use of EPIC as a system-wide integrated electronic health record. Our primary care offices are all PCMH certified. The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care. PCMHs build better relationships between people and their clinical care teams. Research shows that they improve quality, the patient experience and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.
