Valley Children's Healthcare
May 17, 2023
Fresno / Madera, CA


Ranked as one of the nation’s Best Children’s Hospitals in six specialties by U.S. News & World Report in 2022-23 and again in 2022 as one of 10 Top Children's Hospitals in the nation by The Leapfrog Group for excellence in patient safety and quality of care, we’re seeking a Nocturnist Hospitalist to join the Pediatric Hospitalist team at the main campus for Valley Children’s Healthcare in Madera, California. Fellowship training in Pediatric Hospital Medicine is desired but not required for consideration. This position provides the opportunity to be involved in teaching residents in Valley Children’s Pediatric Residency Program, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine.

In addition, we are seeking pediatric hospitalists, including a Medical Director, for partner hospital locations at Kaweah Delta Medical Center in Visalia, located just over an hour from main campus; at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, located less than 120 miles from both main campus to the north and Los Angeles to the south; and at Sierra View Medical Center in Porterville, just 85 miles from main campus.

At Valley Children’s, you’ll work alongside more than 670 physicians and 3,500 staff at the state-of-the-art, 330-bed facility that sits on a 50-acre campus on the idyllic bluffs of the San Joaquin River, with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the background. Providing a full spectrum of pediatric services inside and outside its main campus to more than 1.3 million children in the service area, Valley Children’s Healthcare includes one of the largest freestanding children’s hospitals in the nation, along with a medical foundation and network of physicians, clinics, and satellite facilities around the region. Those facilities include the Neonatal Intensive Care Units the network owns and operates in Fresno, Hanford and Merced, and its outpatient physician offices in Modesto, Merced, and Bakersfield.

These positions provide:

  • Highly competitive compensation package including paid relocation and signing bonus
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, vision and disability insurance
  • Options for health and flex spending accounts, and term life insurance
  • Employer-paid 401(k) contribution up to 8.5% of your base salary
  • 27 days of PTO, 3 CA Sick Days, 7 days of CME, and 5 days Medical Community Service
  • Employer paid malpractice

With a growing metro population of over one million, Valley Children's is situated in the middle of one of the most scenic and geographically varied areas of the country. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy living in the only city in the nation to have not just one, but three National Parks right in your own backyard: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks, which are only 60 and 75 miles from the hospital.

The region is also only one to four hours from the spectacular views of the Monterey Bay and the Pacific coast, the Napa and Sonoma wine regions, the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains and beautiful Lake Tahoe as well as bustling San Jose, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Whether you prefer the snow, the sun or the sand, it’s all within your reach – including amazing hiking and biking trails, kayaking, fishing, local wineries, farm stands and festivals, gourmet cuisine, and so much more.

Another perk: The area is very affordable, and it boasts award-winning schools, making it the perfect choice for families.
