***FILLED*** Associate Chair, Pediatric Primary Care – Growing Children’s Hospital in the Gulf Coast Region
Pediatric Search Partners is pleased to partner with Ochsner Hospital for Children, to identify an Associate Chair of Pediatrics to continue their growth and development of primary care pediatrics.
At Ochsner, you’ll find an incredibly exciting opportunity to join a rapidly growing team of more than 120 physicians, including pediatric subspecialists and a full spectrum of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialty teams. The group is the region’s leading integrated provider of multispecialty care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults offering a full range of pediatric services, including solid organ transplantation and pediatric cardiovascular surgery.
Current facilities include:
• 125-bed children’s hospital within a hospital
• 54-bed Level IV Regional Referral NICU, the highest level available in Louisiana
• 14-bed Level I Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the highest level available
• 12-bed state-of-the-art Pediatric CVICU, the only unit of its kind in the Gulf South dedicated to the care of children with cardiovascular and congenital heart defects
• 45-bed Pediatric Acute Care Unit
• New dedicated state-of-the-art comprehensive child development center, the only facility to offer this type of comprehensive care in the region under one roof
Located in one of our most vibrant cultural cities, Ochsner has a combined residency program with Tulane University Medical School. Medical students from Tulane and the University of Queensland/Ochsner Clinical School rotate through the division. The successful candidate will be eligible for an academic appointment commensurate with experience.
The recipient of numerous awards, Ochsner recently received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Children, a distinction that recognizes exceptional children’s services ranked above the national average for patient safety; and it ranks among Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence, which places Ochsner in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for clinical outcomes.
Goals for this position include the development of a geographically broad network of pediatric primary care providers practicing at the highest possible quality standards on behalf of children throughout the Gulf South Region; and maintenance of solid relationships with the pediatric primary care community outside the Ochsner system, providing the support and communication they need in order for Ochsner Hospital for Children to function as the comprehensive system of care for their patients.
The position requires a board certified physician with administrative experience who has successfully developed and/or overseen a multisite pediatric primary care practice. MBA, MHA or MMM degree is desirable. The Associate Chair will report to the System Chair/AMD, Pediatrics and will lead a team of Pediatric Primary Care Site Directors and Physicians.
New Orleans exudes a character all its own and offers a lifestyle that no other U.S. city can match. It’s home to an unparalleled blend of cultures. World-class music, dining and shopping are just the beginning. A city of neighborhoods, New Orleans is best traveled by foot, but you can also hop on one of the city’s historic streetcars or join the growing legion of commuters by bicycle. NOLA’s neighborhoods each have a distinct architectural flavor and include everything from traditional Antebellum style to historic bungalows and cottages to modern lofts. Professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality await you. The local economy is diverse, with oil and gas, tourism, shipbuilding and aerospace among the top industries, along with health care and education; several world-class colleges and universities are situated here. If you’re craving the beach, the Gulf Shores of Alabama are about two and a half hours away by car; and the white sands of Pensacola, Florida, are just three hours away.
