Medical Assistant (3)- Primary Care Clinic!

Posted: 08/21/2023

Who is Greater Good Health?

Across the United States, the 65+ population continues to increase rapidly while the number of physicians focused on primary care is declining significantly. In fact, it is expected that the shortage of PCPs will reach over 120,000 by 2030. To meet the needs of an aging population and combat declining access to care, Greater Good Health is opening its three nurse practitioner-led primary care clinics in Montana. Our clinics will be located in the communities of Billings, Great Falls, and Missoula.

What makes this Greater Good Health opportunity unique?
Our mission is to expand access to whole-person, value-based primary care for Medicare beneficiaries through a Nurse Practitioner-led care model. In Montana, we have an incredible opportunity to address significant healthcare access concerns and support seniors desperately in need of senior-focused, preventive care. To be successful in opening our clinics in Montana, we need reliable, empathetic, and dynamic people to join our team and help us achieve our mission. This is a remarkable opportunity to help us deliver first-class care to the local community. We can't wait to meet you!
