Community & Hospital

The hospital offers tremendous support including a 64 slice CT, MRI, dual-head nuclear medicine camera, and a hospital based helicopter. It is a Joint Commission accredited 99 bed acute care facility. Cardiac Cath program was launched in October 2005. 10 bed ICU opened August 2007.  There is a free standing Surgery Center for those procedures that do not require full hospital support.  Family Birth Center offers 10 LDR rooms and Level 2 Nursery

Spanish speaking a definite plus but not required.  Very favorable payor mix.  Opportunity offers an excellent guarantee plus generous sign on bonus, relocation and marketing.

In addition to the practice we offer a great quality of life. Our community and hospital are growing.
