LA #1603P: Northwest Louisiana Growing Hospitalist Program
>125 bed hospital in Northern Louisiana is looking to add a Hospitalist to Hospital group for growth. Schedule options include 7 on/7 off, 5 on/5 off or flexible with 3 month lead time, but requires even rotation of day/swing/night shifts. Census ranges from 50-80, covered by 4-6 Hospitalists. The 24 hour admit volume varies from 10-24, with slightly fewer admitted on nights than during the days. ICU coverage and short term vent management are required, but all other procedures are optional. Specialty backup is pretty comprehensive 24/7.
Board Certified or Eligible Internists preferred, but FP and Med-Ped candidates with inpatient experience are also welcomed. Sorry, but we do not qualify for H1 cap exemption or J1 waiver sponsorship.
As part of the Shreveport metro area, we provide multiple community options, a strong sense of history, good schools and a progressive attitude resulting in steady economic growth. With a metro population >250K, and the two parish region >370K, there are plenty of community options and amenities. Housing options range from new condominiums to historical homes and include almost everything in between. Farmland and small ranches are also an option within minutes of the hospital.
Outdoor recreation is a big part of life in northwest LA, with a 4 season climate providing multiple options almost year-round. Youth sports, college athletics, cultural activities, a wide variety of shopping and dining and multiple casinos are just some of the many amenities available for all ages. Local school options include public and multiple private facilities.
