Health System, located in Ft. Smith, Arkansas’ second largest city, is looking for a BC/BE Endocrinologist to meet the needs of more than 45 employed primary care physicians. This is a great opportunity for an immediate referral base and fast practice ramp-up.
•System had an employed Endocrinologist about a year ago who had built a busy practice in only 8 months, but a family illness outside the US required the doctor to return home.
•At the time of the doctor’s departure, new patients were scheduled several months out; a clear indication of the need (and potential!).
•More than 40 primary care physicians and a 6-person Nephrology department in the hospital-owned medical group are eager to support a well-trained, competent, and personable Endocrinologist.
