At Metro West Ambulance Mobile Integrated Health, we offer a different type of medicine, a different type of mindset. Where wicked smart + clinically savvy + patient focused providers = amazing care right in patients homes.
We take the best of emergency response paramedic experience and combine it with a higher level of care in a virtual hospital setting. Because we know what you’re looking for is not “out there”. It’s in you. We can help you find it and live it.
As Oregon’s largest Community Paramedicine – Mobile Integrated Health provider in Oregon-we’d like to have you talk to us about joining our team and our amazing healthcare partners. We partner with our region’s largest health systems along with a national leader in virtual hospital patient treatment to provide customized, innovative mobile health care services including virtual hospital patient care, chronic disease management, surgical and urgent follow up, and low acuity patient care. With over 9 years’ experience and a team of 22 providing community paramedicine-mobile integrated health care & services, our various programs offer unique services that go beyond traditional, episodic emergency care and instead move towards a longitudinal approach to a patient’s overall health and wellness. In other words-we’ve stepped it up!
With our positions, you’re a part of a large health care team caring for patients and working with physicians, nurses, nurse practioners and other providers providing customized hospital level care to patients in their home at the hospital level. So when we say wicked smart, clinically savvy and patient focused providers are what we want, this means motivated, highly skilled clinicians that are looking to take their care to another level. When seeing patients in a virtual hospital setting, you must be able to effectively triage, evaluate and help determine treatment based on symptoms, physical assessment, and medical history, and accurately convey findings and patient treatment needs to other medical professionals in the care team. Care includes iStat point of care lab testing, advanced medication administration and treatment including antibiotics, advanced cardiac medications, 12 lead, blood draws/blood cultures, IV placement and maintenance, foley/straight cath placement, wound evaluations and so much more!
