Advocate Health Care is the largest fully integrated health care system in Illinois and has been recognized as one of the nation's top 5 large systems based on quality, six times by Truven Health Analytics
With 12 hospitals, over 250 sites of care, and one of the region's largest medical groups, we are one of the most advanced and respected health care providers in the nation. But this would not be possible without the talent and skills of our health care professionals.
That's why we are especially proud of our 6,300 Physicians who, through their actions and professionalism, exemplify our mission: "to serve the health needs of individuals, families, and communities through a wholistic philosophy rooted in our fundamental understanding of human beings as created in the image of God."
At Advocate Health Care, our Nurse Practitioners are a vital part of the exceptional care we provide. Here, you'll have a unique opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented physicians and health professionals in a truly collaborative environment. You'll play a critical role in providing continuity of care, communication and patient education, and have the opportunity to participate in implementing innovative and leading practices, such as the development and implementation of our Heart Failure Recovery Center and Respiratory Care Clinic.
As a Nurse Practitioner, you've worked hard to earn your advanced practice professional credentials — achieving a level of excellence that deserves a culture of excellence to match. Six of our Advocate hospitals have been designated as Magnet institutions (the highest recognition given for Nursing excellence), and the remaining sites have begun the journey to ensure maintenance of the highest standards of Nursing excellence.
Our objective is to always ensure that Advocate is a destination where all Nurses can learn, grow and thrive in an inspired environment committed to the safest and best patient care.
Physician Assistants (PAs) at Advocate are an integral part of our health care team. Practicing medicine under the direction of our physicians, PAs serve as first assist in surgery, take medical histories, examine and treat patients, order and interpret laboratory tests and X-rays, make diagnoses, and prescribe medications. They can also treat minor injuries by suturing, splinting and casting, record progress notes, instruct and counsel patients, and order or carry out therapy.
You'll quickly discover that the PA-Physician relationship at Advocate is a highly collaborative one. You'll work in concert with your supervising physician, complementing their ability to deliver a comprehensive range of medical and surgical services. You'll also benefit from a learning environment rich with support, lectures, advanced training and clinical exposure to complex procedures inherent to a diverse patient population – all helping you to continuously develop your skills and advance your career. Your education, versatility and commitment to individualized treatment help our physicians and organization function more efficiently and enhance the level of care we can deliver.
