A hospital in a southern coastal location is recruiting a general neurosurgeon to join its established group of two neurosurgeons and a third that is joining them summer 2022. The new hire can expect a general neurosurgery practice and someone with neuro-oncology interests can be supported.
The ideal person will want to be part of the growth of the neurosciences program at the health system. The program currently includes neurology, PM&R, pain management and neurosurgery. The practice admits to a Level III center. There is a Level I center in town that often goes on diversion, so this hospital often functions as a Level II center.
The new hire will walk into immediate volume and the group has plans to expand to a group of four in the future. To help build the neurosciences center of excellence, they have recently hired a neurocritical care/endovascular surgical neuro-radiologist. An endovascular neurosurgeon would be a welcome addition to the team to partner with this venture. A cancer center is part of the health system with a comprehensive cancer program. The team conducts weekly tumor conferences and have formed a partnership with a nearby academic center where complex cases are discussed. A candidate with neuro-oncology interests can be well supported.
