Job Description:

We are a new healthcare at home company focused on improving the healthcare experience for all stakeholders by enabling health systems to establish Hospital at Home programs and treat patients beyond the four walls of a hospital. By leveraging telehealth, rapid response delivery, in-person visits, and other services, Hospital at Home programs allow health systems to divert patients from hospital emergency departments and provide the same level of care from the comfort of a patient's home. We launched a Hospital at Home program in partnership with a major health system and are in discussion with several other systems that are interested in replicating this model in the near-term. This venture is backed by Shields Health Innovations, which seeks to build innovative and impactful healthcare companies with a focus on sustainability through healthcare partnerships.
