Job Description: This aggressive medical center in Southeast Georgia has opened a search for a pediatric hospitalist who will join our premier pediatric group. The schedule is seven on and seven off. Regarding the seven days on, the Hospitalist will be responsible for all pediatric calls which include mommy calls, ER, nursery and inpatient calls. All pediatric admissions are the responsibility of the Hospitalist. Presently, we average 5-8 admissions to the medical floor per week, an average of 17 newborns per week and anywhere from 5 - 25 mommy calls per night. The medical center also transfers 3-4 NICU babies per month to Savannah. The medical center is a Level 1 nursery with excellent supporting staff.

The selected candidate will be an employee of the medical center system and can expect a $90,000 retention bonus and a beginning base salary of $190,000 with incentives. We pay for all relocation costs and our benefit package is exceptional. Malpractice is $1/3 million with a $10 million umbrella. The selected candidate will be an A+ physician with great training, someone who is highly motivated, and has communication skills. Exemplary skills in pediatric diagnosis and treatment are a must.

There are probably very few rural hospitals/systems like ours in the country. We have gone from 350 employees to 1,100 in the last several years. We have a substantial number of specialists who are supported by the regional primary care base.

The hospital continues to expand as a regional medical center. We will do whatever is necessary to land the candidate we want. We are a great family community, 90 minutes from the coast, no smog, snow, traffic and every doctor who has moved here will say the schools are good.

We are the medical center of choice in our region. We have the newest and most modern hospital in the SE with technology most metropolitan hospitals have yet to purchase. Our community is a wonderful family community as evidence by the quality of physicians we have moved here over the last several years.
