We currently employ three full-time physicians and one nurse practitioner in our comprehensive cancer center and blood institute. In recognizing growth, retirement, and needed service line development, we are now looking at adding a fifth physician to the team. The physicians also do community outreach once a week in Moscow, ID and Pullman, WA the
clinics are approximately 35 minutes north from our campus.

Our patient population includes a broad range of solid tumor and hematologic malignancies; benign hematologic conditions are also a significant component of the practice. We do not do stem cell transplants locally. We have a chemotherapy infusion center onsite, along with Radiation Oncology. We have a small clinical trials program which is currently expanding and affiliating with Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Hem/Onc's admit their own patients and co-manage patients with the hospitalist group. The hospitalists manage the ICU care and with some non-cancer admissions. We also facilitate a multidisciplinary Tumor Board, as well as a Cancer Committee each month. On-call responsibility would be one weeknight per week and every fifth weekend. Physicians are seeing 15-17 patients per day and rounding on their own inpatients.

This opportunity is full-time, hospital employed with competitive compensation, signing bonus, relocation stipend, great benefits, CME, licensure, malpractice and more.

Lewiston, a city steeped in history, traces its beginnings to the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Located in north central Idaho, the famed explorer team came to the convergence of the Clearwater and Snake rivers, which are now the site of twin cities Lewiston, Idaho, and Clarkston, Washington.
Lewiston has a distinct Old West feel and a uniquely dry, temperate climate, which makes it ideal for year-round recreational activities, both on land or in the water. Whitewater rafting, kayaking, swimming, fishing, tubing, canoeing and boating opportunities are plentiful. There is also an abundance of locations to golf, camp, hike, jog and bicycle. Hells Canyon, the deepest canyon in North America, is located in Lewiston.
Along with serving as a recreation destination, Lewiston is the primary regional transportation, retail, health care, and entertainment center of the surrounding area. Agriculture, forest products, and light manufacturing are the economic mainstays of the area.
Strong economic growth, low crime, and a pleasant climate help signify Lewiston as a great place to live.
