This will be a 3 story, 80 bed hospital which will include an emergency department and full range of specialties and services. Our Ob/Gyn physicians will be supported by advance practitioners and sub-specialists in a wide range of health services for women of all ages.
The ideal candidate will have experience working within a complex clinical department and clinical excellence in all aspects of medical and surgical obstetrics and gynecology.
Geisinger Health System serves more than 3 million people in central, south-central and northeast Pennsylvania and also in southern New Jersey with the addition of AtlantiCare, a National Malcolm Baldridge Award recipient. In 2017, the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine became the newest member of the Geisinger Family. Geisinger is nationally recognized for innovative practices and quality care. A mature electronic health record connects a comprehensive network of 12 hospital campuses, 43 community practice sites and nearly 1,600 Geisinger primary and specialty care physicians.

With annual net revenue of $1.9 billion, the Network’s service area includes 10 counties: Lehigh, Northampton, Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Montgomery, Monroe and Schuylkill counties in Pennsylvania and Warren and Hunterdon counties in New Jersey.
Okay with a new grad but would prefer seasoned
Phys: OR time at Orwigsburg, but L&D call in Danville
Aps: new outpatient clinic in Orwigsburg
15 minutes away from each other
Tough to get deliveries from Pottsville to go to Danville
Continuity of care is big
Patient Volume is 18-22/day – higher volume/new market opportunity
Training period before seeing patients on their own:
