General Surgery Opportunity just 35 miles from Knoxville in Beautiful East TN!!
Are you looking for the perfect mix of community, location and practice setting?
-Not too big, not too small. It is a vibrant community of 27,000 (service area more than 100,000) that feels like a "hometown" with tree lined streets and plenty of southern hospitality. At the same time its strong economy, active business/professional sector, and civic-minded leaders are forging a bright future. Excellent public (and private) schools, great recreational/sports facilities, and active local cultural scene help make living here "just right".
-Not too city, not too country. Located just off I-81 in the gently rolling hills of eastern TN, city is 40 minutes from the attractions of Knoxville (178,000)-- close enough for a entertaining night at the symphony or an exciting U.T. football game, but far enough out to escape traffic and congestion. Asheville, NC is just 65 miles east, and the excitement and scenery of Gatlinburg and the Great Smokys is only 50 miles away. City's setting amidst rolling , hardwood forests and two local lakes--with easy access to larger metro areas-- is "just right".
-Needing another General Surgeon to join an existing practice. Only one General Surgeon on staff currently at the Hospital. Laparoscopy experience a must and GI work also available.
It is a 135-bed community hospital with a surprising array of services and capabilities. The hospital's continued growth echoes it's position as the community's choice for inpatient care. AND it's established Hospitalist program is available to cover your inpatients, if you wish, leaving you more time in the office to maximize patient visits. We offer comprehensive, competitive recruitment packages including-- but not limited to--
income guarantee for the first year or employment
medical education debt loan repayment assistance also possible
