About Us

Mass General Brigham Integrated Care (iCare) is a system-led operating entity formed by Mass General Brigham to develop new high-quality, low-cost, innovative community-based ambulatory care.This work stems from Mass General Brigham’s unified system strategy to bring healthcare closer to patients while lowering total healthcare costs. iCare provides a wide range of offerings, including outpatient surgery, imaging, primary care, behavioral and mental health, specialty care, and urgent care, both digitally as well as at physical locations across the state and region.

We aspire to be people’s first choice for health and care

– rooted in well-being and kindness –

by bringing world-class care closer to home (or at home!) and

being the bridge to world-renowned hospitals and research when needed.

Our core values are shared fundamental beliefs that guide our decision-making and behavior and bind us together as a team. At iCare, we are:

  • Bravely Human: We approach our work with empathy, vulnerability, and kindness.
  • Clearly Honest: We seek to provide clarity amongst our teams and patients.
  • Proudly Collaborative: We are all part of a team - each bringing our unique talents to bear.
  • Intentionally Consistent: We intentionally live our purpose, providing a cohesive experience for both patients and providers.
  • Exceptionally Creative: We continue to learn, grow, and iterate on the ways we work.

Our Team

Urgent care, sometimes known as walk-in care, fast care, or express care, is a convenient option for patients who require timely medical care, but the situation is not an emergency. We treat adults and children ages 3 and older and provide care for a wide range of illnesses and injuries. Virtual urgent care allows patients to receive one-on-one treatment from medical providers without leaving their homes. Because patients typically leverage our services when they aren't feeling their best, it is incredibly important to us that our staff members strive to provide the compassion and emotional support our patients need.

The Opportunity

It's crucial to be vigilant and cautious when applying for jobs online to avoid job scams and fraudulent job postings. Be wary of job postings that ask you to use your personal bank account to handle company funds. Get in touch with the employer to confirm that the job posting is not a scam and they are seeking applicants. Be wary of job postings that require you to provide personal information before providing any details about the job or company. When reviewing job postings, be sure to check for any signs of scams or fraud, such as job descriptions that are too good to be true or requests for personal information. If you are unsure about the legitimacy of a job posting or potential employer, seek advice from a trusted friend, family member, or professional counselor. Job postings that require you to pay for a 'starter kit' or other materials are often scams. Don't apply for any job without first researching the company to verify its authenticity and credibility. Stay safe by confirming that you are on the verified liquidscapes.info website. Always be cautious when sharing personal information during the job application process, especially through electronic communication.
