About Legion Psychiatry:

Legion is a pioneering, tech-enabled psychiatry network focused on delivering world-class outpatient care. Our providers—the most talented PMHNPs in the country—are passionate about expanding mental health care access for those with insurance.

Our innovative model combines the stability of a traditional hospital position with the flexibility of a private practice. We prioritize our clinicians' well-being and professional growth, offering a competitive compensation package and fostering a vibrant, collaborative culture.

Quality and patient experience are paramount to us. This means recruiting exceptional providers, championing evidence-based protocols, and displaying compassion in every patient interaction. Our exceptional PMHNPs operate with clinical autonomy, supported by experienced psychiatrists.

Our vision is to pioneer a new era of mental health by delivering world-class psychiatry. We believe in a future where every patient can access the compassionate psychiatric care they need, regardless of the insurance they have.

  • Compassionate Care Culture: Promote an environment of compassion, respect, and empathy in patient interactions and care approaches.
  • Holistic Treatment: Create and execute tailored treatment plans, combining medication and brief psychotherapy, in teamwork with other mental health and medical professionals.
  • Innovation in Treatment: Explore and integrate new therapeutic techniques and technologies to enhance patient outcomes and care efficiency.
  • Professional Growth: Participate in case reviews with peers and physicians to enhance clinical skills and foster ongoing learning.
