About Us

Hope. Care. Cure. These three simple words capture what we do at Seattle Children’s –- to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible. Are you ready to engage with a mission-driven organization that is life-changing to many, and touches the hearts of all? #HOPECARECURE

 

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.

Overview

We are recruiting for a motivated Advanced Practice Provider (APP) to join the Division of Otolaryngology to provide evidence-based care in both the outpatient and inpatient settings. This APP will diagnose and manage a wide range of ear and upper airway conditions as well as other head and neck pathologies. When in the ambulatory setting, the APP will practice independently to manage their own panel of patients but will also work collaboratively with our surgeons to care for children who have complex pathologies or require surgical intervention. This individual will also learn and maintain proficiency for a range of procedures. While on the inpatient service, the APP will round with our residents, fellows, and attendings and help manage our primary service and consultations.

 

 

Our ideal candidate is an individual who is comfortable with caring for medically complex children and working both autonomously and collaboratively with a large team of clinical staff, other APPs and physicians as well as other subspecialists at the hospital and providers in the community. There are also opportunities to participate in our even more specialized clinics, such as Hearing Loss, Vascular Anomalies, and Aerodigestive, engage in additional learning and training opportunities, and work on quality and safety improvement projects.
