Job Description

Columbia Memorial Hospital located in the upper Hudson Valley region of Upstate New York, 2 hours north of NY City and 30 minutes south of Albany, NY. It is a 192 bed facility whose philosophy is patients first, emphasizing safety and quality in patient care. The area offers the best in/outdoor activities year round as well as an extensive array of cultural and artistic venues.

Job Description:
Summary/Objective: We are looking for a full or part time Family Physician for a growing rural practice in Greene County, NY. The position is currently for an outpatient environment only. The applicant would be part of a large group practice but in a small satellite office within a large hospital owned multispecialty group. You will enjoy an excellent collegial environment with a seasoned well respected Nurse Practitioner in the practice. Our aim is to help you shape it to your practice style. You would be part of an active Ambulatory department that meets regularly to collaborate and shape the direction of our quality goals. There is outstanding specialty support and with our new Albany medical Center affiliation, every specialty is at your service.
Setting Type (in or outpatient or both): Outpatient only, No obstetrics.
Facility Description: Small rural practice site with adequate support staff.
Other Staff (MDs, NP/PAs, MAs): Depends upon the practice location but most likely you will work with a seasoned Nurse practitioner, along with a manager, receptionist and nurse and medical assistant.
Patients Per Day: Variable, but we would like to see a range of 80-90 per week. Depending upon the hours worked each day the volume would change. It also varies with the volume of new patients which often take longer. For every 10 hours worked, we allow 8 for scheduled patient visits and 2 as needed for miscellaneous administrative tasks and paperwork. This is unique to CMH as most large groups offer a 90-10 split instead of our 80-20 rule.

Hours: Negotiable
Call: Schedule: On average one in 8-10. Phone call only and weekends
are from 8 am Friday until 8 am Sunday. Typical weekday
call averages one phone call per shift.
Type: Outpatient phone call only.
Rounding: None. Would consider Nursing home coverage if desired

Reason for Recruitment: Current Physician retired

Start Date: As soon as you are able.

Compensation & Benefits:
- Hospital employed status
- Negotiable salary; guaranteed base with incentive package
- Benefits include occurrence malpractice, individual and family health care insurance, CME/professional dues, vacation and sick time, disability coverage, retirement plans, and more.
- Relocation and Education Loan payments negotiable
