New Concierge Pediatric Practice Opportunity
Location: Charlotte, NC
Levine Children’s Perspective Health & Wellness – Charlotte, NC
This new Atrium Health Levine Children’s practice will be a concierge/membership model practice in the SouthPark area. The more Atrium Health explored the landscape locally and nationally in this space, it was felt that this is an up and coming model that would make its way into our community and we wanted to be the ones to do it because we believe we can do it well. Levine Children’s Perspective Health & Wellness will help meet the needs of the demographic served in this area, to meet the expectations and desires of many of the parents. Parents will pay an annual Membership Fee per child and in addition, the clinic will help them with filing their private insurance. Some of the benefits will be longer appointment times (30/60 minutes), same and/or next day appointment availability, and having 24/7 access to their child’s Care Team. This practice will aim to open Spring 2020 (either option). We have two pediatricians identified from within our system and would like to bring on one more physician to complete the team. Call will be 1:3 between the three pediatricians, typically a week at a time, to include the expected weekend clinic time. In-patient admissions and care will be covered by the robust Pediatric Hospitalist team at Atrium Health Levine Children’s Hospital. Candidates must be Board Certified and have at least 2 years of experience in an out-patient setting.
