Position Type
We at OBGYN Services in Norwich, Connecticut are seeking a BE/BC Ob/Gyn Physician to join our existing private practice group.
  • We serve a diverse community of approximately 40,000 people.
  • We are 1 hour from New Haven, Hartford, Providence, and Worcester, 2 hours from Boston, and 2.5 hours from New York City.
  • We enjoy open spaces, woods, parks, lakes, and the beautiful coasts of Connecticut and Rhode Island. We have excellent school systems, both public and private.
We perform approximately 900 deliveries a year at the William W Backus Hospital, a 225-bed hospital with 18 private LDRP rooms and two C/Section operating rooms. We have 24-hour in-house anesthesia and neonatal nurse practitioner coverage and have a Level II NICU planned for 2022.
  • We also have 24-hour surgical PA coverage.
  • Our main operating room suite includes a Da Vinci robotic system.
  • Our hospital was one of three CT hospitals awarded Best Maternity Care Hospital by Newsweek for 2021.
  • We collaborate with the Windham Hospital Women's Clinic for obstetric patients and United Community Family Services, a local federally qualified health center, for surgical patients.
We have professorship appointments at the University of Connecticut.
  • We work with one third year medical student per 6-week clerkship.
  • We also have Ob/Gyn residents from the University of Connecticut assist several times per month with major surgeries.
Ob/Gyn Services was started in 1973.
  • We currently have 2 office locations, both in Norwich, and are planning a third in Waterford, CT.
  • The "main office" houses our business and gynecology practice and is located less than two miles from the hospital, in a building originally built as a home in 1750 -- it looks like a classic New England farmhouse, with a large working stone fireplace in the waiting room.
  • Two additions over the years created space for 13 exam/procedure rooms.
  • We perform colposcopies/LEEPs, diagnostic hysteroscopy, and ultrasounds.
  • The Obstetrics office is located in the medical office building within the hospital itself, about 100 yards from the Birthing Center.
Our group's strongest asset is our physicians. Backed by excellent academic training, we are dedicated to providing high-quality, evidence-based, compassionate and conscientious care. We believe we offer a first-rate opportunity to join a group of physicians who get along uniquely well, and to practice excellent medicine with a balanced professional and personal life. We are currently composed of 7 physicians, 5 midwives, and 2 APRNs. For most of us, this is the only place we have ever practiced:
  • David Kalla, MD - Joined 1987
  • Stephen Briggs, MD - Joined 1995
  • Suzelle Hendsch, MD - Joined 2001
  • Melissa Welch, MD - Joined 2003
  • Matthew Brown, MD - Joined 2007

We are seeking an individual who loves obstetrics, gynecology, and surgery, and who enjoys teaching as well.
  • We offer a competitive first year salary along with a generous 6 weeks of vacation and a week of paid time off for CME.
  • Call is anticipated to be 1:6. Partnership is offered after 2 years.
We look forward to discussing this opportunity to you.
