Illinois – Pediatric Hospitalist
My client’s Pediatric Hospitalists provide coverage in 7 emergency room locations in Illinois and Missouri. This position is hospital based in the Emergency Room and Nursery, (no inpatient pediatrics). No call required. Attend high risk deliveries when needed, prepared to resuscitate and stabilize pending transfer to their Pediatric Hospital. Their Ped Hospital is designated as a level 1 pediatric trauma center in both Missouri and Illinois. Theirr delivery sites are not high risk centers. This position is mainly a primary caregiver for pediatric patients in the ED. Most of patients fall more in the realm of urgent care, however sometimes they see very ill children and they are then prepared to stabilize and transfer to CG. Their providers typically see 18-20 patients per day, however that can vary depending on seasonally variable.
Their shifts are 12 hours. They are 7-7 or 6:30-6:30 depending on site. Some of our physicians prefer a 24 hours shift, this is permitted but not required. Our schedules are flexible and custom built. It is a mix of days and nights. However if a candidate wants all nights, they can make that happen.
Physicians are considered fulltime at 36 hours/week. However some physicians elect to work 42 or 48 hours per week and compensation is adjusted accordingly.
They offer a 2 year contract, excellent benefit package including health insurance for employee + family, retirement benefits, (both matching and automatic), paid time off, (6 weeks’ vacation annually, that can roll over), 1 week CME and CME dollars.
