Family Medicine Opportunity in Northern Idaho - OB Optional!!
Hospital is seeking a Family Practice physician to join our existing employed physician group. We currently have four Family Practice physicians and four mid level providers in our three clinics. An additional private family physician practices in town and shares ER call with our employed doctors. Physicians have an outpatient practice and share an ER call rotation between five physicians and some weekend relief staff. We are particularly interested in a physician with an interest in procedures, OB and/or C-Sections but the primary goal is hire a physician who wants to be part of the team and community. One of our physicians is relocating back to his home town next June and this is the reason we are seeking another physician.
