Job Description

Johnson Memorial Hospital, Franklin, Indiana, is expanding its Physician Network by recruiting up to two new family medicine specialists. This recruitment is in response to the growing demand for primary care services in family medicine and the hospital's growth strategy. The increased demand will be more critical as the hospital responds to community needs under future health care reform and prepares for the addition of a fifth OB/GYN and a fourth surgical specialist who will join the Network in mid-2014. The future growth of those specialties will be dependent on patient access to primary care services. Through the hospital's clinical collaboration with Community Health Network in Indianapolis, JMH is a joint partner in a large outpatient health pavilion that opened in July of 2013 in northern Johnson County. This creates an additional opportunity to expand access to Family Medicine services for a portion of the county that previously has had limited convenient access to services. The physicians selected will join the seven-member Family Physicians of Johnson County (FPJC) group practice. FPJC physicians are all employees of Johnson Memorial Hospital and the group is a member of the Johnson Memorial Physician Network. The group is anchored by several long-term and experienced physicians, but also includes a newer generation of physicians who have enjoyed significant success in their practices. FPJC enjoys a strong community presence and reputation in the JMH Service Area. Currently the group maintains three practice locations: on the JMH campus in Franklin, at the new Stones Crossing Health Pavilion in northern Johnson County, and an office in Whiteland, Indiana in north central Johnson County. The practice is staffed by Drs. Doug Bulllington, David Dunkle, Simon Feng, Diane Kolody, Gerald Mader, John Wiseman and Patricia Wiseman. Physician's Assistant Elisha Hart also provides patient services. Any physician joining the group will enjoy the assurance of knowing they are associating with a highly respected and experienced group of colleagues, in a practice that enjoys strong community support and trust. Call rotation will be very limited (at least 1:8) which typically will require phone availability only. The hospital has a fully operational 24/7 hospitalist program to cover all inpatient needs. This allows each physician to maintain their focus on the care and service of their office-based patients.

Hospital Description
Johnson Memorial Hospital is county-owned and has served the citizens of Johnson County immediately south of Indianapolis since 1947. With just over 100 staffed beds the hospital has a number of specialty programs. Among them are a comprehensive cancer services, breast center, cath and peripheral vascular lab, cardiovascular testing center, sleep center, wound care center, diabetes care program, acute rehabilitation center, spine surgery, orthopedic and sports medicine services, ENT services, critical and progressive care units and a renal dialysis service on the JMH campus. Johnson Memorial Hospital maintains a 12-bed Maternity Center built entirely on the LDRP concept. The Unit also has a special procedures room where all C-sections are performed. Patients and the medical staff have access to 24-7 anesthesia coverage and the unit staffs a level 1 nursery. The hospital maintains a close relationship with Riley Children's Hospital which is utilized for newborn critical care transfers. The transfer rate over the past five years as ranged from a low of 1% to a high of 3.5% of all births. Over the last five years the Unit has averaged 500 births per year and that volume is growing. The hospital completed a $12.5 million expansion and modernization of the surgery unit in 2012. In 2010 Johnson Memorial Hospital entered into a clinical collaboration agreement with Community Health Network in Indianapolis. The agreement sets up a system for JMH and the CHN to pool resources and market strength to jointly develop new programs and services in the Johnson County market. The agreement has no effect on the hospital's ownership or management, as it will remain a county-owned hospital, directed by its own board of trustees and administrative team.
