Position Type

A leading multispecialty physician organization serving residents of Western Massachusetts for over thirty-five (35) years, with over 55 physicians and thirteen (13) different office locations, is seeking a Hospitalist to join our growing Group Practice. Our Mercy Medical Center service is seeking to expand our in-house coverage to three FTEs with an average of 12 patients per day. This is an 8-5 position, Monday through Friday with no night call. Rotating weekend call will be an average of 1 in 5. We are hiring another PA to assist with the patient coverage and will have three FTEs in this service as well as our physician coverage. Our service is focused upon patient care and interaction. As hospitalists, we focus upon being the coordinator of care for complex patients during hospital stays. As a result, we spend more time with families, patients, and coordinating care with other providers. We emphasize quality and efficiency. HCPA, LLC is a very successful group and we are prepared to offer a generous compensation package that will include a base salary and benefit program. We have focused on developing a continuum of care for our patients, which, along with our outpatient sites, includes our own Hospitalist programs at the two hospitals in Greater Springfield, a long term care and sub-acute team which provides services at 14 Skilled Nursing Facilities, our own full service laboratory, a Sleep Disorder Center, an urgent care center, and Imaging Center. Other specialty services include, Allergy/Immunology, Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Gastroenterology, Pulmonary Disease, Surgery, Rheumatology, noninvasive Cardiology, Pain Management, Oncology/Hematology, Infectious Disease, Geriatrics, and Urgent Care. Our group generates approximately 200,000 patient visits per year. We are a physician-owned organization with a highly skilled administrative team, whereby physicians participate in various committees, such as finance, performance improvement, operations, compliance, strategic planning, QA/UM, and other advisory committees, which along with the work of the Executive Board, determines the future of our organization. With affordable housing, excellent schools, and a number of colleges in the region, Western Massachusetts offers a vibrant mix of urban growth and rural settings. Springfield is conveniently located within driving distance to Boston, New York, Hartford, the Berkshires, as well as easy driving to beaches and skiing. Bradley International Airport is located just 25 minutes south on I-91. Due to the time constraints of a busy practice, Mr. Gene Corbett of Physician Finders will help us with this search. Mr. Corbett has met with me, understands the need, and has helped Hampden County Physicians with numerous physician searches. He is very knowledgeable about our group and the Greater Springfield area. He may be contacted at: 800-229-9759; by e-mail at: Gene.Corbett@physicianfinders.com or by fax at: 636-257-7003.
