Welcome to Pine Park Health!

About us

Pine Park Health is a value-based primary care practice that’s reshaping how residents of senior living communities experience healthcare. We provide high-quality prevention and screening, care for chronic conditions, lab work, and diagnostic testing to patients in their homes and closely partner with community staff to improve resident health and wellness. We also provide in-person and virtual Rapid Care for common concerns — like falls, wounds, or changes in behavior — to help patients avoid trips to the ER where they’re exposed to further health issues.

Over 80 communities across the Bay Area, San Diego, Nevada, and Phoenix work with Pine Park today and we’re growing rapidly to expand our reach and impact. Investors include First Round Capital, Google’s AI fund, Canvas Ventures, Foundation Capital, Y Combinator, and Susa. If you’re interested in changing healthcare for seniors, join us!

The Opportunity

We’re clinicians, operators, product designers, and technologists that are passionate about redesigning the way people receive care. We provide care for residents of senior living communities and are looking for driven, compassionate, person-centered clinicians like you to join us. Our focus is on giving people the care they want, compassionate, person-centered, holistic, and based on their values and what matters to them and match that with high-quality, evidence-based clinical care.

Over the last two years, we’ve experienced tremendous growth and are looking for a Market Medical Director excited to help lead the growth of evidence-based, person-centered care into the future. As the Market Medical Director, you will be the clinical expert and partner to our primary care providers (PCPs) to ensure we meet our goals of providing person-centered care, diagnostic capture, and appropriate utilization of specialists/services. As a physician leader, you will partner with our primary care providers to ensure strong community relationships, appropriate clinical documentation, and evidence-based clinical care.

  • Monthly Collaborative Rounds: You will be responsible for leading and participating in monthly collaborative rounds where you will review individual patient cases with primary care providers (NPs) in Nevada.

  • Board-certified physician in Internal Medicine or Family medicine with geriatrics and/or palliative care experience, board-certification a plus
