ABOUT THE FACILITY Mercy Care - The mission of Mercy Care is to serve the poor, marginalized, and underserved patients and clients in Atlanta. Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy and Saint Joseph's Health System., Mercy Care was created in 1985 by volunteer nurses and physicians and grew from modest beginnings into a "medical home" that provides an efficient, integrated system of primary health care, education and social services reaching thousands of poor, uninsured, underserved, and homeless patients and clients in Atlanta each year. We operate five fixed-site Mercy Clinics: Downtown located on Decatur Street, Buford Hwy, St. Luke's Episcopal Church, The Gateway Center for Homeless Services and The City of Refuge in Vine City. Six other clinics are conducted in community partner facilities or onboard our mobile health coach. Atlanta, Georgia is the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to 5.7M people and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Atlanta is an "alpha-" or "world city", exerting a significant impact upon commerce, finance, research, technology, education, media, art, and entertainment. It ranks 40th among world cities and 8th in the nation with a gross domestic product of $270 billion. Atlanta's economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors including logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. Topographically, Atlanta is marked by rolling hills and dense tree coverage. Revitalization of Atlanta's neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city's demographics, politics, and culture. Atlanta, while located in the South, has a culture that is no longer strictly Southern. This is due to a large population of migrants from other parts of the U.S., in addition to many recent immigrants to the U.S. who have made the metropolitan area their home, establishing Atlanta as the cultural and economic hub of an increasingly multi-cultural metropolitan area. Thus, although traditional Southern culture is part of Atlanta's cultural fabric, it is mostly the backdrop to one of the nation's most cosmopolitan cities. This unique cultural combination reveals itself in the arts district of Midtown, the quirky neighborhoods on the city's eastside, and the multi-ethnic enclaves found along Buford Highway. As of 2010, Atlanta is the seventh-most visited city in the United States, with over 35 million visitors per year. Although the most popular attraction among visitors to Atlanta is the Georgia Aquarium, the world's largest indoor aquarium, Atlanta's tourism industry is mostly driven by the city's history museums and outdoor attractions. Atlanta contains a notable amount of historical museums and sites, including the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, the Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum, the World of Coca-Cola, the College Football Hall of Fame, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, and the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum, where Mitchell wrote the best-selling novel Gone with the Wind. Atlanta contains various outdoor attractions. The Atlanta Botanical Garden, adjacent to Piedmont Park, is home to the 600-foot-long Kendeda Canopy Walk, a skywalk that allows visitors to tour one of the city's last remaining urban forests from 40-foot-high. Zoo Atlanta, located in Grant Park, accommodates over 1,300 animals representing more than 220 species. Home to the nation's largest collections of gorillas and orangutans, the Zoo is one of only four zoos in the U.S. to house giant pandas. Festivals showcasing arts and crafts, film, and music, including the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, the Atlanta Film Festival, and Music Midtown, respectively, are also popular with tourists. Tourists are drawn to the city's culinary scene, which comprises a mix of urban establishments garnering national attention, ethnic restaurants serving cuisine from every corner of the world, and traditional eateries specializing in Southern dining. Since the turn of the 21st century, Atlanta has emerged as a sophisticated restaurant town. The Southeast Permanente Medical Group (TSPMG) in Atlanta, Georgia is seeking a BC/BE general psychiatrist for one of our out-patient clinics in metropolitan Atlanta. Reasonable call schedule and a great opportunity to work in a collegial environment.)
