When Passion Meets Purpose

True innovation happens when passion meets purpose. Mission Care Teams is the result.

Our mission is to build, support, and lead great care teams that maximize quality care and service excellence while bringing the JOY back to practicing medicine.

A physician will coordinate up to three acute care teams at one time.  In some practices, additional team members such as technicians, nurses, patient navigators, and other providers may augment the teams depending on the unique needs of the hospital—and its patients.

At each site, physician staffing is provided by a smaller, more dedicated group of physicians, leading to more consistent, standardized care. More clinicians in the department improves patient experience, time-based metrics, and adherence to guidelines.


  • Advanced Practice Clinicians (APCs), teamed with scribes, are the core providers, with physician leadership and oversight.
  • APCs provide most of the care for low acuity patients.
  • For emergent cases, the APC or physician initiates care.
  • Specialized training and coaching is provided for everyone on the team to ensure optimal efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Good communication and standardization of processes ensure efficiency and quality without impeding clinicians from exercising their judgment and autonomy.

The Hippocratic Oath that you’ve taken has evolved since it was penned in ancient Greece. This is a modern version.

  • I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.
  • I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.
  • I will not be ashamed to say, “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.
  • I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.
  • If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

As written in 1964 by Rutgers University alum Louis Lasagna, MD.

While words can’t instill purpose, these can—and do—provide meaningful context for how we should provide care. As clinicians, our purpose extends far beyond “first do no harm.” The purpose of Mission Care Teams is to provide high-quality, efficient, compassionate care to communities that lack it. Patients deserve care teams with a mission.

An Environment for Advanced Practice Clinicians to Thrive

In the Mission Care Teams (MCT) model, advanced practice clinicians (APCs) run point on providing clinical care. Whether you are a physician assistant or nurse practitioner, you’ll find rewarding work and an unparalleled team experience.

Nationally, employment of advanced care providers is expected to grow about 34% by 2026, much faster than the average for other occupations. As the demand for providing care to underserved and aging populations grows, APCs will play a pivotal role in enabling physician groups to provide quality, cost-effective care.

You need a rewarding career that enables you to practice at your best. Our fluid model partners physicians with APCs and supports them with well-trained scribes. We want to off-load as many non-clinical tasks from APCs as possible. Our goal is to get everyone working to the top of their license.

MCT has more APCs than physicians. As such, there are many roles for leadership and many opportunities for engagement. APCs have important seats at our table. In addition to ongoing professional development and team training, there are opportunities for leadership development, professional society involvement, committee assignments and more.

Creating a Culture that Engages

Emergency physicians are feeling burned out, disconnected, and depressed. The Medscape National Physician Burnout, Depression and Suicide Report 2019  found:


Emergency physicians ranked second to last when it comes to happiness, with only 21% reporting that they are happy at their jobs


48% of emergency physicians reported that they are burned out, up from 45% in 2018


91% of all physicians who reported feelings of depression said that it’s affecting patient care and clinical quality


Note: Although not surveyed as a separate Hospitalist group, results were very similar for Internal Medicine.

Burnout makes it sound like clinicians have a problem. Like “you’ve burned out.”  Not so! What’s happened is a more insidious and pernicious process that we’ve been forced to endure. Clinicians have been beaten down! Take any typical person and subject them to the rigors of clinical training and the stresses of caring for emergencies and you will see some fraying of nerves. But if you add to that the mind-numbing inefficiencies of healthcare IT, infinite numbers of measurements, resource limitations from unavailable medication to nursing shortages and you break the will of even the most resilient of society’s safety net.

Mission Care Teams (MCT) was created by physicians to make life better for clinicians, and, in turn, for patients and hospital administrators. The factors that contribute to burnout—charting, paperwork, bureaucracy, lack of autonomy, lack of administrative support, feeling like just a whitecoat in a sea of whitecoats—are the downsides of medicine that we’re working to simplifying or simply remove from the equation.

If you dread going to work, see how different it can be.

We want clinicians who are energized and enthusiastic—or long to feel that way again.

Twenty years ago, we didn’t talk about engagement when practicing medicine. It wasn’t a thing. Now, it’s the thing. When we talk about engagement, we’re talking about a very simple concept: being an integral member of the organization and its culture. It’s being involved in committees and task forces that shape your practice or your work-site and having a voice in the discussions that can make—or break—your work environment. It’s being a vital member of the team.

Clinician apathy can kill a practice, and possibly patients. By taking part and showing interest, you’re telling us that you enjoy your job and care enough about it to be a willing participant in this shared experience called team medicine.

Here’s how we’re helping clinicians to be involved, supported, and respected:

  • Everyone has a voice! This is not a huge company spanning dozens of states. It’s a group of local practices that share culture, processes, and resources. Everyone has access to everyone else in the organization. Through formal and informal communication, facilitated by the group and technology, your voice and valued input will be heard. You are in the loop and at the table.
  • MCT has the best site medical directors in the field. From selection, compensation, and support to coaching, performance measurement, staff satisfaction, and client satisfaction, we will make sure that this key position is filled with the best of the best.
  • Site medical directors and key support leaders meet regularly for training, collaboration, sharing of best practices and to make sure that group leaders are fully aware of needs and solutions from the field.
  • MCT facilitates monthly department meetings and social functions to drive relationship building and group cohesion. The site medical director is given resources and support to make these meetings highly effective and individually rewarding. Far from a “waste of time,” these meetings are where the team collaborates to drive the practice at the site. Quality is improved, learning takes place, and critical feedback is given to the site medical director to make the practice and MCT the best there is.
  • There are opportunities to get involved across sites through provider councils and other educational and social opportunities.
  • We encourage active participation in local and national professional organizations, like ACEP, ACOEP, SHM, SEMPA and more.
  • MCT provides tools like video conferencing to enable participation in group and department meetings.

Join Mission Care Teams

Our practice was created for clinicians by clinicians. By focusing on designing the ideal medical group for our specialties, we’ve created a culture that innately values clinicians.  The delivery of care in emergency departments and on hospital medicine services is fragmented. The current system doesn’t work, and it hasn’t in years. Clinicians spend more than 50 % of their time at work attending to administrative or menial tasks. We’re changing that.

You need a rewarding career that respects your time and frees you up to do what you do best. Our fluid model partners physicians with advanced practice clinicians (APCs) and supports them with well-trained scribes. Up to three acute care teams are coordinated by a physician, and are augmented by technicians, nurses, patient navigators, and other providers depending on the unique needs of the hospital—and our patients. In addition, schedules are built to allow for maximum flexibility to address surges in census and arrivals in real time.

At each site, physician staffing is provided by a smaller, more dedicated group of physicians, leading to more consistent, standardized care. And, more clinicians in the department improves patient experience, time-based metrics, and adherence to guidelines.

We’re looking for enthusiastic physicians, skilled APCs, and energetic medical scribes to join our growing team. Specialized training and coaching will be provided to ensure optimal efficiency and effectiveness.

Desired Qualifications

We’re looking for clinicians who:

  • Like working as part of a team
  • Are comfortable trusting members of the team
  • Find satisfaction in being able to influence the care of more patients
  • Are comfortable offloading certain tasks
  • Are confident yet humble
  • Want to have fun at work
  • Believe that it’s a privilege to take care of people in their time of need
  • Want a great career and great life, with competitive compensation
