Hi to Everyone (and Happy New Year!),
Sunrise Children's Hospital in Las Vegas, NV is looking to add even more PEM physicians to our continually growing Emergency Department. We are looking for 1-2 BC/BE PEM physicians for either full-time or part-time work. Come and work with us full time and enjoy the area or fly in town for a week or more a month and do some good work (while also enjoying the area). Get paid to come to Las Vegas? Almost too good to be true! The patients are great, the staff is wonderful, and the hospital administration is incredibly supportive. What's not to like?
The Sunrise Pediatric Emergency Department is a 22 bed unit caring for approximately 40,000 patients per year and growing. It is staffed 24/7 by PEM physicians, with significant additional coverage from pediatricians, NPs and PAs. We have a excellent subspecialty call list, great relations with our inpatient colleagues, and wonderful support from the hospital leadership. Our nursing staff is truly excellent and our nurse manager is one of the very best!
Long known as a major resort city with world-class entertainment, shopping and fine dining, the Las Vegas area also offers a variety of family-friendly activities. If all of you know of Las Vegas is The Strip, you don't know Las Vegas. Sure, there are multiple Cirque du Soleil shows, amazing restaurants, incredible music and nightlife (and a little gambling), but there are so many things beyond the Strip as well. With mild (beautiful) winters and warm (actually hot in July and August), dry summers, this desert climate is great for many outdoor recreational pursuits such as boating, golfing, bicycling, horseback riding and fishing. The nearby mountains are ideal for camping, skiing, hiking and rock climbing. Close proximity to Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Zion National Park and other scenic natural landmarks provide Las Vegas residents the opportunity to enjoy some of our country’s most picturesque attractions in their own backyard.
Residents can also take day trips to many state and national parks in Nevada, Arizona, Utah and California. A myriad of housing options exist, from rural horse properties to high-rise condos. There are many safe, master-planned communities such as the award-winning community of Summerlin, located along the western edge of the Las Vegas valley and framed by the Red Rock National Conservation Area. There is also no state income tax (which is very, very nice). For more information on what Las Vegas has to offer, visit www.lvchamber.com.
We offer competitive salaries and excellent benefits including health (choice of two PPO options), life, vision, dental and disability insurance; 401(k) with potential company percentage match; annual CME allowance; potential for relocation assistance; employee stock purchase plan; stability in a national organization (Mednax, Pediatrix) with more than 30 years of health care experience and continued growth and expansion; professional liability insurance; and assistance with mandatory hospital credentialing and state licensing, and reimbursement of associated fees.
