***FILLED*** Pediatric Hematology Opening in the Heart of California

Valley Children's Healthcare
February 14, 2018
Madera, California


We’re seeking a board-certified pediatric hematologist oncologist with a special interest and focus in hematology to join the team at Valley Children’s Healthcare, one of the largest pediatric healthcare networks in the country.

More than 65 years ago, five young mothers imagined building a hospital just for kids in California’s Central Valley.  The mothers’ dream not only expanded into a 358-bed free-standing children’s hospital with nationally recognized physicians and programs, it is now an entire healthcare network that serves more than 1.3 million children in the heart of California.

Valley Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center provides the breadth of specialized services and depth of experience to treat the most common to the rarest pediatric hematologic and oncologic conditions.  With state-of-the-art treatment protocols and clinical trials, the team has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years in hematology with an annual volume increase of 30 percent and more than 25 outpatient visits daily totaling more than 4,000 outpatient visits in the 2016 fiscal year in hematology.  Because of the growth in both hematology and oncology, the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center now has five nurse practitioners and 10 board-certified oncologist and hematologists who have been trained at top institutions around the world.

Valley Children’s offers complete hematology services for all types of blood disorders such as all forms of bleeding and clotting disorders, hemoglobinopathy disorders, thrombocytopenia, platelet disorders and white blood cell disorders and is part of the Western States Region IX Hemophilia Network and the Thalassemia Western Consortium.

The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) at Valley Children’s is the only federally-funded center in the Central Valley recognized for providing comprehensive care to individuals with bleeding and clotting problems such as hemophilia, thromboembolic disorders and von Willebrand disease.  There is also a hemoglobinopathy program that includes sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, a prevalent condition in the Central Valley region.

In this large and diverse region, Valley Children’s hematologists have diagnosed and treated many rare cases, including:

  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Fanconia Anemia
  • Diamond Blackfan Anemia
  • Factor 13 deficiency
  • Combined factor deficiencies
  • Vincenza type Von Willebrand disease

The Valley Children’s network includes five specialty care centers in Visalia, Modesto, Merced, Bakersfield and Sacramento, and maintains a pediatric residency program and partnership with Stanford Children’s Health.  The hematologists see patients at the Bakersfield and Modesto specialty care centers and provide telemedicine support for the specialty care centers in Modesto, Bakersfield and Visalia to improve access to high-quality care in the Central Valley.

Joining Valley Children’s growing hematology oncology team also provides the opportunity to live in the only city in the country with three U.S. National Parks in its backyard, and within easy driving distance to California’s Pacific Coast, the Napa and Sonoma wine regions, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe. California’s Central Valley is home to the majestic splendor of Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, so if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you will feel like you have truly found home here. And when you're not exploring the Sierra Nevada mountains, Pacific Coast or all of the amenities offered in the Los Angeles and Bay areas, you'll enjoy residing in a beautiful, affordable area with excellent schools, friendly neighborhoods and an exceptional quality of life.

This position offers tremendous potential for professional growth as well as a highly competitive financial compensation package, including signing bonus and relocation allowance.
