***FILLED*** Developmental/Behavioral Pediatricians Needed for New State-of-the-Art Center for Child Development

Ochsner Hospital for Children
June 22, 2018
New Orleans, Louisiana


We’re seeking Board Eligible/Board Certified Developmental and Behavioral Pediatricians for an exciting opportunity with Ochsner Hospital for Children’s new dedicated state-of-the-art comprehensive child development center opening this year in New Orleans, Louisiana.

For more than 75 years, Ochsner has offered a level of pediatric care unmatched in Louisiana and more advanced capabilities than any other children’s hospital in New Orleans. The Michael R. Boh Center for Child Development will fill a critical need for specialized pediatric care in Louisiana and will be the only facility to offer this type of comprehensive care in the region under one roof. Physicians with special interests in neuromuscular disorders and cognitive/communication/behavioral disorders are desired but not required for consideration.

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. In addition to the NICU, current facilities include a 26-bed PICU (14-bed Med/Surg and 12-bed CVICU), and a 35-bed General Pediatric Unit.

Located in one of our most vibrant cultural cities, this nonprofit, academic, multi-specialty institution is the recipient of numerous awards, including Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence, which places Ochsner in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for clinical outcomes. Ochsner also 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 appeal of living in New Orleans is absolutely undeniable. The city exudes a character all its own and residents have a passionate attitude to life. New Orleans is an unparalleled blend of cultures. Regarded as 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 are only the beginning. 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. It’s easy to understand why residents take great pride in calling New Orleans their home.
