If you are an experienced physician leader seeking an exceptional professional opportunity in Pediatrics, we would love to speak with you!
We’re seeking a Board Certified Pediatrician who is an experienced physician leader with the vision and passion to continue the growth and development of the primary care system as Associate Chair of Pediatrics for Ochsner Hospital for Children in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This is an exceptional opportunity to join Ochsner Hospital for Children’s rapidly growing team of over 120 physicians, including pediatric subspecialists, and a full spectrum of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialty teams. The group is the region’s leading integrated provider of multispecialty care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults offering a full range of pediatric services, including solid organ transplantation and pediatric cardiovascular surgery. The current facilities include a 52-bed Level III-C NICU, a 26-bed PICU (14-bed Med/Surg and 12-bed CVICU), and a 30-bed General Pediatric Unit as well as a free-standing ambulatory center for children housing primary care and subspecialists.
The recipient of numerous awards, Ochsner recently received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Children, a distinction that recognizes exceptional children’s services ranked above the national average for patient safety; and it ranks among Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence, which places Ochsner in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for clinical outcomes.
Located in one of our most vibrant cultural cities, Ochsner has a combined pediatrics residency program with Tulane University Medical School. Medical students from Tulane and the University of Queensland/Ochsner Clinical School rotate through the division. The successful candidate will be eligible for an academic appointment commensurate with experience.
The appeal of living in New Orleans is absolutely undeniable. The city exudes a character all its own and residents have a passionate attitude to life. New Orleans is an unparalleled blend of cultures. Regarded as a city of neighborhoods, New Orleans is best traveled by foot, but you can also hop on one of the city’s historic streetcars or join the growing legion of commuters by bicycle. NOLA’s neighborhoods each have a distinct architectural flavor and include everything from traditional Antebellum style to historic bungalows and cottages to modern lofts.
Professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality are only the beginning. The local economy is diverse, with oil and gas, tourism, shipbuilding and aerospace among the top industries, along with health care and education; several world-class colleges and universities are situated here. If you’re craving the beach, the Gulf Shores of Alabama are about two and a half hours away by car; and the white sands of Pensacola, Florida, are just three hours away. It’s easy to understand why residents take great pride in calling New Orleans their home.
