Valley Children's Healthcare
December 3, 2020
Madera and Modesto, CA


Ranked as one of the nation’s Best Children’s Hospitals in seven specialties by U.S. News & World Report in 2020-2021, including Pediatric Gastroenterology and GI Surgery in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020, Valley Children’s Healthcare is expanding and seeking Board Certified/Board Eligible Pediatric Gastroenterologists to join their team at Valley Children’s Hospital’s main campus in Madera, California and at the Pelandale Specialty Center in Modesto, CA.  We are looking for pediatric gastroenterologists with a passion for the underserved and innovative ideas to join this fantastic team while also expanding resources for the children of the Central Valley.

At Valley Children's main campus, you'll enjoy working at this state-of-the-art, free-standing children's hospital with 358 regional beds. The setting is a 50-acre campus on the bluffs of the San Joaquin River with the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains in the background. Valley Children’s current team includes nine Pediatric Gastroenterologists, who work at the main campus and Specialty Care Centers in Bakersfield and Modesto. With a vast 12-county, 145,000 square-mile service area, Valley Children’s provides Central California’s only high-quality, comprehensive care to over 1.3 million children in the service area, from before birth to age 21, with more than 640 physicians and 3,500 staff. Valley Children’s also has Pediatric Residency and fellowship programs in affiliation with Stanford University School of Medicine.

One of the largest pediatric healthcare networks in the nation, Valley Children’s is growing rapidly to meet the needs of families throughout the Central Valley. Eagle Oaks Medical Office Building in Bakersfield, located just an hour and a half from Los Angeles opened in 2018 and the new Pelandale Medical Office Building in Modesto, situated just an hour and a half from San Francisco, which opened in 2019. Last year, Valley Children’s 34th Street Specialty Care Center in Bakersfield saw more than 5,500 visits and expects the number of outpatient visits to grow to more than 42,000 within the next decade. In Modesto, the outpatient center saw more than 12,000 outpatient visits last year and is expected to grow to more than 27,500 annual visits in the next decade.

Valley Children’s goal is to provide healthcare resources to patients in the Central Valley within 30 minutes of their home. This diminishes healthcare disparities while offering state-of-the-art medical care to children.  These new, sophisticated facilities in Bakersfield and Modesto bring even more of Valley Children’s pediatric specialists closer to the families who need expert care.

Valley Children’s network spans one of the most scenic and geographically diverse areas of the United States.  It’s an outdoor lover’s paradise! You’ll be in the enviable position of having not one, but three National Parks in your backyard: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia.  The area is within one to three hours of the stunning Pacific coast, the Napa and Sonoma wine regions and the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains, plus the San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles metropolitan areas.  Lake Tahoe is about a four-hour drive away.  Whether you prefer the snow, the sun or the sand, it’s all within your reach.  And with so much varied geography, you’ll also find hiking and biking trails, kayaking, fishing, local wineries, farm stands and festivals, gourmet cuisine, and so much more.

Additionally, you will find warm, welcoming communities that provide a great place to live and work, affordable homes, excellent schools and a strong financial compensation package, including relocation and signing bonus.
