CLIENT: Providence Health
Location: Spokane, Washington
Seeking three PERM Neurohospitalists to fill open positions. Familiarity with Acute Stroke protocols and tPA administration. General neurology consults and follow-up exams. Good interpersonal skills and ability to work in a team atmosphere. 100% adult inpatients. 12 to 15 patients per day per physician, no admissions, 4 ICU. 3 physicians in group. 4 mid-levels.
Facility has a new staffing model starting Jan 1 where the permanent shifts are 6a - 6p, 9a - 9p and the night shift is 9p - 6a. They work 161 days/shifts and have the other 204 off. Often a week on/week off, however with 6 FTE it doesn't always work that way. They never have anyone work 2 weeks straight unless they ask for that. With vacations among the group they sometimes have to give someone two weeks off in a row, when they don't actually want it. The schedule is tricky so they can only promise you won't work 2 weeks straight.
Must be board certified. Will need hospital privileges at Sacred Heart and Holy Family.
