About HOPE

HOPE Healthcare Services (HOPE) currently provides medical and dental care through the efforts of volunteer healthcare providers; serving as the medical home for 600-700 patients with 1500+ patient-visits per year.  With 60 three-hour shifts each month, approximately 20% of the capacity of the building-hours is utilized.  Limited mental health services are offered.  HOPE is a Christian ministry and a 501c3 organization (www.myhopehealth.org).

HOPE is adding a DPC practice to the ministry, with primary care services provided to patients paying a monthly fee.  Our Community Care model (described above) will continue to provide care by healthcare professionals volunteering their time and, on a limited basis, the HOPE staff physician/NP.  DPC patients will not receive care from the volunteer providers.

HOPE’s mission is not changing. The addition of the DPC model is to increase the ministry’s reach into the community and steward the resources (both material and human) that God has provided.

Description of Duties/Responsibilities

We are seeking a part-time (3 days per week) physician (MD/DO)  to partner with another physician or mid-level provider. (The job share arrangement is to allow for time off; as this is the first, paid staff medical provider at HOPE.)
