Imagine living in location where the outdoors beckons all year long – where you can spend your off-hours hiking in one of the three U.S. National Parks right in your backyard, and all of California’s splendor is within easy reach. On the weekends, if you’re craving the stars of Hollywood, the beaches of Southern California or wine tasting in Paso Robles, you can hop in the car and be there within two hours. Central California, one of the state’s best-kept secrets, offers all of this along with a high quality of life, affordable real estate, excellent schools, and an exceptional children’s healthcare system.
Valley Children’s Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest pediatric healthcare networks, is rapidly expanding to serve the needs of growing families in the heart of California. We’re seeking a Board Eligible/Board Certified Urgent Care Pediatrician to join Valley Children’s team in Bakersfield, located less than two hours from both the main children’s hospital campus and from the Los Angeles metro area.
Pedi Center offers local families access to quality, affordable health care without the long wait and stress associated with a typical emergency room environment. The practice has a 25-year history in Kern County, offers an onsite digital X-ray and rapid lab testing, and treats a variety of illnesses and injuries seven days a week and after hours.
Providing a full spectrum of pediatric services inside and outside its main campus in Madera County, Valley Children’s Healthcare incorporates one of the largest freestanding children’s hospitals in the nation, along with a medical foundation and network of physicians, clinics and satellite facilities around the region. Those facilities include the Neonatal Intensive Care Units the network owns and operates in Fresno, Hanford and Merced, and its outpatient physician offices in Modesto, Merced and Bakersfield.
In affiliation with Stanford University School of Medicine, Valley Children’s Pediatric Residency and fellowship programs provide first-class training for the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists.
Here you enjoy residing very near the geographic center of the state within one to three hours of the stunning Pacific coast, the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains and Los Angeles. Bakersfield enjoys a healthy local economy, vibrant job market and a tight-knit, family-oriented atmosphere. It’s also a surprisingly affordable area of California, with a cost of living significantly lower than that of the nearby environs of Los Angeles.
California’s Central Valley is home to a rich agricultural industry. Its fertile fields produce a wealth of incredible produce, and the region maintains a strong commitment to locally sourced foods. With a population of more than 1 million, you’ll also enjoy a great variety of big-city amenities here: excellent restaurants; theater, music and arts; nightlife; professional sports and more.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love life here! Within Bakersfield proper are hundreds of miles of bike lanes and paths, and almost 60 parks. And three U.S. National Parks are within two to three hours’ drive: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia, providing awe-inspiring natural beauty and near-limitless options for recreation. Hiking, fishing and skiing are among your after-hours and weekend options.
This is an exceptional opportunity for professional satisfaction and career growth in an area with easy proximity to some of the most stunning geography and largest metro areas in the country.
