SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matrix Medical Network, a national leader in prospective medical assessment services for Medicare Advantage (MA) plan members, has released a new video that speaks to Nurse Practitioners and their important role at Matrix.

To meet the needs of new clients and expanding opportunities to schedule home assessments and other care management services with existing clients, Matrix opened a new member contact center last month and is currently in the process of expanding its clinical team of nearly 500 Nurse Practitioners. Matrix is growing and looking for Nurse Practitioners, in locations nationwide, who are skilled, driven, and passionate about the health care of others to join its well-respected team of clinician professionals.

Every day, Matrix's team of Nurse Practitioners takes care of more than 1,200 MA plan members, and they are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the people they visit. Not only do Matrix Nurse Practitioners complete a very thorough medical assessment, they listen to people's concerns, provide health and home-environment safety counseling, and share vitally important member health information with the members' physicians.

"At Matrix, we are very committed to the Nurse Practitioners who see our clients' members. We put a lot of time and energy into the selection and education, as well as the support, of the professionals who come to work for us," said Dr. Gerbarg.
