Cardiothoracic Surgery Opening in Southeast Alabama!!
Hospital is seeking a Cardiothoracic Surgeon in an employed arrangement.
The CV surgery program is supported by four very well respected and busy full-time cardiologists, two of whom are interventional. Hospital has four rooms in its busy cath lab as well as full cardiology diagnostics and rehab programs. The program can produce upward of over 150 CV surgeries per year. Hospital has a large catchment area of over 300,000 people with a high incidence of cardiac illness and comorbidities. The CV program currently has a full-time nurse practitioner/RNFA and is supported by 24/7 perfusion coverage. A highly skilled OR team is available that routinely performs complex heart and vascular cases. We recently purchased new heart and perfusion equipment, so we have best-in-class capabilities. Dedicated operating room block time is scheduled for the specialty. The surgeon would have ample office space co-located with other surgeons in a physician office building attached to the hospital. The anesthesiology program is very strong, with physicians who live and work in the community and have deep CV surgery experience. An MDA or CRNA is available 24/7 in-house.
The structure of the program is one full-time CV surgeon and one full-time nurse practitioner. The surgeon would be required to be on-call the propensity of the month with periodic locum tenenes support for time-off and holidays. The surgeon must live in the area for rapid response in emergent cases.
