Position description
Do you envision a world where quality, patient-centered health care is as close as your home? A future where top-notch, monitored care is delivered seamlessly without the boundaries of physical location, access or acuity? Well so does Mayo Clinic, and advances in clinical and consumer technology are making that vision a reality.

Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire is leading the way in delivering care outside of the boundaries of a traditional hospital. Virtual care offerings will leverage technology to serve high-acuity patients in with new options for recovering at home.

The offering is based on three new and expanded capabilities:
  1. A physician-led 24/7 virtual monitoring center
  2. On-demand acute medical care management, and
  3. Rapid-response teams to deliver supplies and services
We believe that these capabilities, along with Mayo Clinic’s nationally recognized clinical care, will allow patients to transition from the hospital to home faster than ever before, while ensuring quality and safety along the way.

As a critical member of a multidisciplinary team, you'll use your well-developed skills as an LPN to assess acute care patients and deliver evidence-based nursing care to patients in their homes as well as the Eau Claire hospital.
