Physician Job Description
CoxHealth is searching for a BE/BC fellowship trained Infectious Diseases physician to join our existing hospital–based clinic. This candidate will join two physicians and one physician assistant. The practice is 100 percent ID, and we average between 15 to 25 new consultations per week. This practice has all facets of Infectious Diseases- antimicrobial stewardship, infection prevention, outpatient HIV care, outpatient consultations, inpatient consultations, telehealth and travel medicine. We have well supported medical directorships within the organization.
The practice includes teaching medical students and residents, medical directorships and telemedicine opportunities. The outpatient clinic is attached to the hospital and the infusion center is connected to the office. There is access to a full service clinical microbiology lab that includes virology, mycology and mycobacteriology labs, as well as a full set of molecular platforms. We see a diverse array of disease processes including Level-1 trauma, immunocompromised hosts including HIV and the entire spectrum of vector-borne and endemic infections.
The schedule includes regular daytime hours plus consultative services, and no admitting to the hospital. Weekend call includes one in three weekends where we cover new consultations. This typically includes two to six new consultations per weekend. Compensation is very competitive and is based on work production and not collections. The potential to grow this practice is unlimited. We are looking to fill a recently vacated position, and the candidate would have opportunity to grow their practice as they see fit and become involved in any of the above-mentioned “non-patient care” activities.
Our health system includes six hospitals with more than 80 clinics and 200 primary care physicians serving 24 counties. Ferrell-Duncan Clinic, our multi-specialty clinic physician group offers 23 specialties.
CoxHealth is Missouri’s first hospital system accredited by DNV-GL Healthcare for quality and patient safety. All five hospitals, as well as our outpatient centers and provider-based clinics hold this national distinction from DNV’s accreditation program, the National Integrated Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. We are the only local health system named five times to U.S. News & World Report’s Best Regional Hospitals list, and we are recognized by CareChex as among the Top 10 percent of U.S. hospitals for medical excellence and patient safety in overall medical care.
