Practice Opportunity Highlights
Saint Alphonsus Medical Group (SAMG) is a 280 provider multispecialty group practice seeking a full-time, board certified or board prepared obstetrician/gynecologist (OB-GYN) who is committed to a multi-disciplinary team approach to patient care and is willing to support and grow a OB-GYN medical group practice in a significantly underserved community. This opportunity is perfect for the OB-GYN who seeks a more rural style of practice with the support of a large health system and a well organized multispecialty group practice which includes 14 OB-GYN physicians, 2 Maternal-Fetal-Medicine specialists (MFMs), Neonatologists and a Gynecologic Oncologist.
The SAMG Nampa OB-GYN practice is presently comprised of two SAMG employed board-certified OB-GYN physician (who are, in turn, supported by an FNP in the clinic who also 1st assists in the O.R.). These providers require partners to support a rapidly growing practice which now includes the recent acquisition of a full and mature independent private practice. Consequently, this opportunity is essentially turn-key in nature.
Moreover, Saint Alphonsus Health System is investing $33.5 million in the Nampa community (2nd largest city in Idaho, pop. 83,000) to expand access and enhance medical services. As part of that investment - in late 2013 - Saint Alphonsus will open the Fredric Birkeland Maternity Center (a 20 bed obstetrics unit/LDR model with a spa-like feel and atmosphere). With the opening of the Maternity Center, the clinic practice will move from its current location across the street from the South Nampa hospital campus to the new center and Health Plaza situated along Interstate 84, straddling the cities of Nampa and Meridian and proximal to the geographic population center of the entire Treasure Valley (630,000).
Requirements include a strong clinical background, surgical skills and experience; completion of an ACGME/AOA accredited Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Training Program; and board certification in Obstetrics & Gynecology. The opportunity also requires Idaho and Oregon licensure and granting of privileges at SAMC-Nampa and other system hospitals as needed to strengthen the Health System's OB-GYN program across all the communities we serve.
Saint Alphonsus Health System (SAHS) is the regional leader in telemedicine innovation and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to integrate the use of telemedicine into his/her practice to coordinate referrals and consults within the network to include MFM, Neonatology and Gyn Onc, et al. subspecialties.
