An academic medical center is recruiting an ABNS BE/BC general or spine-focused neurosurgeon for a “privademic” position at a community hospital. Experienced neurosurgeons can fill the position of Chief of Neurosurgery at the hospital. As of May 2021, the university has become the neurosurgical providers for the hospital. The health system has over 300 referring providers and is a very sophisticated system, with an incredibly supportive administration. The new neurosurgeon will be based at the community hospital and part of the university’s neurosurgery department and will be afforded academic opportunities including a resident rotating at the hospital and clinical research. Call is currently provided by the university’s neurosurgeons and they will continue to share call coverage with the new neurosurgeon.
The hospital is a 381 bed, level II trauma center, and home to a Level-III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). It is located in a beautiful neighborhood, only 9 miles from the academic medical center. It is a Watson Health 100 Top hospital and has earned The Joint Commission's Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers, an A grade in The Leapfrog Group’s Spring 2021 Hospital Safety Grades, and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus Quality Achievement Award.
