Physiatrist needed for Pikeville Medical Center, a 26l-bed acute care hospital with a modern 10,000-square-foot 40-bed physical rehabilitation floor. Pikeville Medical Center has over 300 physicians of all major specialties and subspecialties that support the Rehab unit. PMC is a referral center that is stroke certified, chest pain accredited, and in the process of becoming a Level 2 trauma center. Currently we have 2 Physiatrists on staff and we are looking for one additional.

The Physiatry practice includes inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient rehab office practice. PMC already employs an experienced physiatrist, on staff for almost 4 years, with whom you would share practice duties in both settings. The daily census ranges from 16 to 22 patients, which includes great potential for growth in the trauma volumes and additional regional transfers into PMC.

The Inpatient practice is supported well by hospitalists, cardiologists, nephrologists, and orthopedists. We have a large interdisciplinary team of nurses, 15 therapists, social workers, and a psychologist.

Outpatient office with growth potential includes EMG/ NCS studies, trigger point and joint injections, musculoskeletal, ultrasound-guided imagery for Botox (a plus if you have experience in this field). Wound Care Clinic is available to practice half day, if desired. We have the latest technology in rehabilitation, including the Lokomat Robotic Ambulation System, Armeo computerized upper extremity rehab, and HydroWorx aquatic therapy.
