Our On-Demand Care Department is the largest, most-comprehensive in Nevada for outpatient episodic care, with a quarter million visits annually. The department incudes six urgent cares and seven retail clinics, offering a full-spectrum of services, with on-site laboratory, radiology (which includes CT and ultrasound), observation unit and infusion center. Our practice is nearly paperless, with electronic health records, digital radiology, electronic prescriptions and e-visits. The practice encompasses the full scope of urgent care and is evidence-based and protocol driven. Our department also includes a robust telemedicine practice, with nearly 15,000 virtual consultations since 2014.
The schedule is equitable and flexible, with ample time off. Providers work primarily three 12-hour shifts a week, with some weekend, night and holiday shifts distributed evenly among the staff. Additional shifts, which are paid at a premium rate, are also available. The schedule is ideal for those who desire an alternative work schedule and who do not wish to conform to a traditional five-day work week. Our total compensation is extremely competitive, with incentive bonuses and a rich benefits package.
