St. Peter's Health Partners is an established group practice, seeking certified and licensed Nurse Practitioners with interest in Geriatrics, Hospice, Palliative Care, and/or home healthcare to join the Home Based Primary Care team located in Capital District, New York.

The Home Based Primary Care Team manages the care of homebound patients residing in Albany, Rensselaer, and southern Saratoga counties.

The Nurse Practitioners are supported by a full time Senior Registration Associate and a full time RN Care Manager.

Patients are referred by their primary care provider, hospitals/rehab centers, and home health. The team works closely with providers across SPHP Medical Associates in the Medicare Shared Savings program and collaborating in the care of those who are homebound to ensure access to primary care. The team's office is co-located with our comprehensive home health services to facilitate close communication with an interdisciplinary team involved in the patient's care.
