(Physician/MD qualifications required) Hospitalist- Internal Medicine - Hospitalist West Plains MO

We are seeking two BE|BC Hospitalists to join 5 other Hospitalists for a team of 7. You’ll discover a quality lifestyle in a breathtaking location. Come see firsthand why our strong community atmosphere, abundant outdoor recreation opportunities, top quality education, safe setting and soul-soothing beauty draw in people from around the country. Here’s more:
• Looking to recruit two BC|BE IM Hospitalists to join 5 other Hospitalists for a team of 7. Three hospitalists will work during the day 7 am – 7 pm. One nocturnist works 7 pm – 7 am.
• 7 on 7 off.
• 114-bed Hospital. This includes beds from OB and Neuro Psych Unit which hospitalists only see patients there if consulted. Therefore Hospitalists routinely cover 65 beds.
• Average census per physician is 15 – 20.
• Average total admissions per 24 hours: 10-15.
• Currently, there are 3 physicians working per day 7a-7p. One physician on nights 7p-7a.Each physician starts out with a set number of patients who they round and take call on during their shift (12 hours). In addition two of the 3 physicians on per day alternate admissions. Basically every 3rd day you are not on call for admissions, you round on your patients only. Many physicians do try and leave a little early during the day they are not admitting. Physician will still need to be close in case they need to respond to one of their patients (less than 20 minutes). Physicians do leave for lunch even on days they are admitting if time permits.
• 12 bed ICU. ICU skills are important as Hospitalists do cover the ICU. (i.e. Vent management, Central lines…)
• ICU SUPPORT: Anesthesiologists and surgeons available for consults and can help with difficult cases. There is one Pulmonologist who can help with any critical pulmonary patients on vents or those who have chronic pulmonary issues. Anesthesia available 24 hours if needed. RT staff is proficient with intubating patients and anesthesia is a backup as well.
• The nocturnist is not required to round on patients. They do however, take call from nursing staff on patients throughout the night and may have to see a patient if they are deteriorating, etc. The rest of the time is spent doing admissions. Admissions can be anywhere from 3-10.
• Emergency Department is responsible for codes. Hospitalist is asked to arrive as soon as possible to take over care.
• Specialty & Subspecialty services include: Pulmonology, Pathology, Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, Psychiatry, Interventional Cardiology, Ophthalmology, Rheumatology, Urology, General Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Pain Management, OBGYN, Ortho, Wound Care, Interventional Cardiology, Diagnostic Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Occupational Medicine.
