Our founding promise to the community is as valid today as it was over a century ago: we will care for all children in our region, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research, and serve as the pediatric and adolescent, academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.
In 2019, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 27th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.
As a Magnet designated institution, and classified among America’s best large employers by Forbes, we recognize the importance of hiring and developing great talent to provide best-in-class care to the patients and families we serve. Our organizational DNA takes form in our core values: Compassion, Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration, Equity and Innovation. Whether it’s delivering frontline care to our patients in a kind and caring manner, practicing the highest standards of quality and safety, or being relentlessly curious as we work towards eradicating childhood diseases, these values are the fabric of our culture and community. The future starts here.
We are looking for a driven, experienced, and collaborative Advanced Practice Provider (APP) to join a young, innovative and busy Interventional Radiology department to help to provide procedures to our patient population and to improve continuity of care across the IR patient’s experience.
This role will serve a diverse population requiring care by our Interventional Radiology team in the inpatient and outpatient settings with ample opportunities for program development. The APP will be an integral, autonomous member of the team and will have the opportunity to perform inpatient and outpatient consultations, help with procedures and engage in quality improvement work. Research opportunities will also be available.
The Interventional Radiology APP will complete on boarding and training that will enable them to build relationships with a diverse group of patients and referring departments. The ideal candidate has clinical expertise working with medically complex patients (particularly surgical patients), evaluating patients in the ambulatory setting, evaluating new consultations on the inpatient units, and collaborating with a diverse group of referring providers.
The ideal APP will be part of a coverage model that will provide care Monday through Friday.
