New York - Obstetrics/Gynecology – (51373)
Location: New York
New York – OB/GYN
• My client is a small hospital in Upstate NY, 55 miles from Albany, 45 minutes from Saratoga. They have a low volume labor and delivery (500 per year). The low volume can be attributed to demographics. This year they saw a 20% upswing by end of June. They have a strong commitment to deliver this service and a beautiful birthing center.
• They currently run Women’s Health out of 3 of their 12 Primary/Specialty Care Centers.
• They have a 4 MD group with 2 midwives and 3 WH NP. Their office practices are quite strong.
• This is a full time position that assumes a four day week and a one in 4 call. They have Nurse midwives who take 1st call when they are assigned for call which means that you would be called by doctors, ER or the birthing unit in those circumstances but not patients. (and, yes, in full disclosure, the math dictates that there are times when a midwife will not be on call with you, but it is fairly rotated and at those times and GYN patient calls go to their other NP call rotation). They would assume that you will do deliveries and surgeries.
• Salary is based on the Median for their Geographic region. This assumes a 4 day week and a one in 4 call obligation. Should a physician wish to raise the number of days in the week, or other varying factors, they can always talk about salary changes.
• Benefits include 8 weeks PTO, with one week per year placed in an extended sick time bank (EST) which could be accessed after 7 calendar days of continuous documented illness. Their CME reimbursement stipend these days for OB/Gyn is $4500.00. They pay approximately 90% of the premium for Family Health Insurance. There are 7 major holidays during which the offices are closed. You would be paid for these. These days still need to be covered in the 1 in 4 call fashion.
• Malpractice. They offer Individual Occurrence and this affords you the ability to take the risk management course and get the excess layer.
• Other: They pay DEA, licensing, society dues, etc. and they throw in about $400.00 for whatever other things you want. Some use them for their internet bill at home since they use remote access, or to buy and new smart phone, etc. They pay $38.00 per month for you to use your personal phone for call.
• There is a sign on bonus
• The physician may also avail themselves of a 10% salary lump sum disbursement at the start of employment. Such 10% is then subtracted from your rate of pay in 52 equal payments beginning in the first payroll period. After the 52 weeks, the weekly salary reverts to the regular salary rate.
• They pay reasonable moving expenses.
