Pediatrician Needed in Meridian, MS for a Busy, Outpatient Practice
Rush Central Clinic
Rush Health Systems, based in Meridian, MS, is searching for a BE/BC Pediatrician to join one of its growing and well-respected Pediatric practices. Excellent opportunity for a Pediatrician as Rush is committed to growing its Pediatric program, with a large service area and full support from hospital and medical staff, along with administration. We are hopeful to establish an inpatient pediatric presence at our 215 bed hospital at a later date so inpatient experience is a plus.
Rush Health Systems, the largest employer in the region, is an integrated health system comprised of a 215 bed hospital and a 49 bed LTAC; along with an expansive network of 25 clinics and 5 critical access hospitals located throughout East Mississippi and West Alabama. We currently have a team of 5 pediatricians, all doing outpatient. One of our pediatricians is leaving so we are looking to add a new physician to our clinic practice at Rush Central Clinic.
Rush will merge with Ochsner Health out of LA this summer to become Ochsner Rush Health.
Highlights of this opportunity:
Established outpatient practice -currently one pediatrician in the clinic along with an adult/pediatric NP and mid-wives
Will not cover nursery or C-Sections. Neonatology coverage does that. Level III NICU.
Ability to step into an already existing practice with a large referral base throughout East Mississippi and West Alabama.
Pediatric Clinic located close to the hospital.
Newly implemented EHR system- EPIC.
Inpatient experience is a plus as hospital wants to establish a pediatric inpatient program in the near future.
