A very large and well-established private practice in the south is looking for an additional neurosurgeon to join its well-established group. This premier neurosurgery and neurology practice are seeking a clinically-based neurosurgeon to join their innovative practice and be stationed at a community hospital in Arkansas. This will be a general neurosurgery position and the successful candidate will join a team of neurosurgeons who are part of the practice.
This position will be based in a community hospital which was recently built in 2014. Call will be 1 in 4 for the ER and for the Clinic. Each physician is paired with a mid-level provider (APRN/PA), RN and LPN. LPN’s function solely in clinic, while mid-level providers and RN’s cross clinic and hospital. They will assist in rounding, seeing consults and are first call on the call schedule. The hospital also employs two surgical first assists, one of which is a PA. This is not a heavy trauma job and only 16 total neurosurgery trauma admissions happened in 2019. The position will be an employee of the private practice group and the group will be leasing this physician to the hospital as part of their co-management arrangement with them.
The hospital is a 228-bed Level IV trauma hospital with plans to upgrade to a Level III status. There is a 36-bed open ICU. They have a great internal research department who are always looking for physicians to assist with research projects, and teaching opportunities include medical student and internal medicine residents. The hospital currently employs four neurosurgeons and two of them would like to slow down their practice, but current referral needs will not allow for such a significant decrease. Anticipated first year volume is 250-350 and there is no pediatrics coverage. Someone with deformity training/interest could be supported.
