Title: Nurse Practitioner
OakWell provides high-quality primary care to patients living with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). To ensure these patients receive quality primary care services, we provide comprehensive and integrated care right in the dialysis center. This allows patients to conveniently fit primary care into their existing healthcare schedule, keeping them healthy and living well. With an ambitious growth trajectory, OakWell is seeking and cultivating team members who are passionate about our goal of fully integrating primary and kidney care.
OakWell is powered by Oak Street Health, an innovative company delivering higher quality health and wellness care for adults on Medicare, in partnership with Interwell Health, a kidney care management company that partners with physicians on its mission to reimagine healthcare.
OakWell Nurse Practitioners (NPs) lead our primary care teams, working closely with Medical Assistants/Community Health Workers and Virtual Scribes. Since our care teams deliver primary care in Fresenius dialysis centers, our NPs also work closely with dialysis nurses, patient care technicians, social workers, and nephrologists.
NPs see patients independently, provide longitudinal care, and build meaningful patient relationships; this creates trust and helps our patient understand and feel connected to their care plan. Our NPs see their patients in the dialysis clinic approximately every other week; small panels of around 100 patients allow OakWell NPs to spend more time with patients, build deeper relationships, and better execute/coordinate care plans.
OakWell NPs typically work from a Fresenius dialysis clinic 4-5 days per week, with some Fridays spent working from home.
