Job Description


High Risk Centers * Berkeley Heights, Livingston and Clifton NJ


Summit Medical Group, a for-profit physician-owned and governed multispecialty medical group founded in 1929 is the premier multi-specialty group practice in New Jersey. SMG’s group-practice model is enduring, efficient and the ideal approach for delivering state-of-the-art, compassionate, optimal and convenient care to patients throughout the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area.


SMG practitioners deliver clinical care in a variety of settings including ambulatory office, home, hospitals, post-acute rehab, long-term care, and continuing care retirement communities.  As SMG expands its clinical model to care for patients with complex medical and social needs, we have an immediate need for skilled PAs with the ability to manage multiple chronic diseases in patients who are in transitions of care and/or have higher acuity needs.  SMG is creating High Risk Patient Centers to accommodate the needs of these patients.


Responsibilities will include:


  • Performing ambulatory office visits and directing medical care for patients with high complexity/multiple comorbidities and who are at high risk for re-admission, decompensation or complications
  • Providing detailed, focused medical assessments and management of patients transitioning back to ambulatory settings from the hospital, ER, post-acute care facilities, and/or UCC 
  • Collaborating with SMG specialist and primary care physicians to review acute medical illness, assess expected recovery, evolve care plan, and educate patients and families
  • Collaborating with RN Care Manager, Social Worker and Clinical Pharmacist as needed to meet patient care and social needs


To qualify, you must have a current NJ PA license, and 3 years of direct patient care experience in a Hospitalist, Emergency Medicine or Adult Primary Care capacity. Excellent analytical, problem-solving, oral/written communication and organizational skills are all essential.
