Job Summary

Our Hospitalist opportunity offers a unique practice which combines managing a wide range of medical and surgery sub-acute patients during their transition to home. The schedule is day shift with minimal night call 1:9 from home.

Once quoted as being "a rehab on steroids", the atmosphere is very similar to a med-surg unit. Working as a Post Acute Hospitalist for Tower Health is NOT like working in a nursing home, and this opportunity offers, in many ways, a more appealing lifestyle than an acute hospitalist position would.

We are seeking physicians who are BC/BE in Internal Medicine only.

  • Schedule will be a repeating, 8-week block rotation pattern
    • Within those 8 weeks, the hospitalist will have 3 weeks off and 2 additional weekends
    • Approximately 16.5 worked days per month
  • Coverage will be provided at both the Rehabilitation Hospital and at our Acadia Behavioral Health facility
  • Minimal night call of 1:9 will be from home; Call is only for the Rehab Hospital and not the behavioral health facility

What We Offer:
  • Competitive salary
  • Educational Loan Assistance
  • Comprehensive benefits, including health, professional liability with tail, disability insurance and retirement savings options
  • CME allowance
  • Relocation assistance
  • H1-B and Green Card Support
  • Supportive health system to advance goals
