Job Description

About Enloe Medical Center:
Enloe Medical Center is a community-based, not-for-profit 298-bed, level-II trauma center located in vibrant Northern California, City of Chico. It is the largest medical center in the region, offering the North Valley a full continuum of health services ranging from preventative education and outpatient services to acute care, behavioral health, inpatient rehabilitation and home health and hospice services. Serving more than 400,000 residents in a six-county region in Northern California, we provide quality, compassionate, cost-effective care to our patients. Enloe Medical Center encompasses seven separate facilities, and is the only hospital in this college-town. The medical recently underwent a $178 million expansion which made all of our rooms private and included new GI facilities, ICU's, and a Mother & Baby Care center as well as expanding the size of our Emergency Department.

About the Practice:
A local and well-respected private practice is looking to add a competent, team-oriented, and affable physician to their team. Weekday call is shared with community Pediatricians, so is 1:8, and weekends are optional. A nurse triage service handles night phone calls. Hospital call is reimbursed. The incoming physician would transition from an employment scenario to partner at one calendar year. In addition to your salary, the local hospital will cover the costs of your relocation and provide a robust signing bonus. The practice utilizes an outstanding, top-rated EMR/practice management software platform that was designed for Pediatrics. Ideal candidates are board certified in Pediatrics (or coming directly out of their training program), comfortable with EMR's, possess current DEA/CPR certifications, and possesses a positive, team-oriented approach to their work-life. If qualified potential candidates prefer a hospital-based practice scenario, we are amenable to this structure as well. This position entails a generous guaranteed income and robust signing bonus.

The Pediatric Hospitalist position provides in house coverage during the day and via call in the evenings. Our average census for our Pediatric floor is 5. Our average census for Obstetrics is 8. The average census for our level II, 6-bed, NICU is 0.5. There is Pediatric Advice Line fielded by a nurse as the first line of call coverage. As this is a hospital-based scenario, there is no overhead. Compensation would be a base plus production (RVU) model.
