AL #1301P: close to Birmingham, 90 to Atlanta
<40 bed hospital in need of hospitalist due to phasing out of locums program. 7 on/7 off schedule with very limited night call duty. Nights are covered by NP and hospitalist generally assumes care the next morning. Patient load anywhere from 6-20 but averaging <15. ICU and short term vent management needed. Limited specialty backup as high acuity/complexity patients are shipped to sister tertiary care facility.
Board Certified or Eligible IM candidates preferred. FP or MedPed candidates with substantial inpatient experience definitely considered, but this program covers adult patients only.
Located in the foothills of the Appalachians, this community is scenic, friendly and safe. While agriculture is definitely a staple of the economy, it is no longer the economy as auto manufacturers and other industries continue to move to the area. With Birmingham <40 minutes away (and on the airport side), and Atlanta <90 minutes to the east, it’s an easy commute for dinner or recreation. This community is located far enough off I20 to be private, but close enough to get anywhere in a hurry with a large lake less than 20 minutes from the hospital, as well as a state park and other outdoor recreation areas.
