Two hospitals in coastal Maine have a shared orthopedic surgery group that covers both campuses, just 14 miles apart.
One is a 64-bed community hospital, the other is a 25-bed critical access hospital.
The group has three orthopedic surgeons, and this position is the sole PA who will support the team.
The new PA will have an interesting practice that includes pre- and post-op care, plus hands-on surgical support.
You can expect two days/week in the OR, and three days/week in clinic, with time divided between the two hospital campuses.
You will earn a very competitive base salary plus an excellent benefits package that includes paid relocation, health and life insurance, plenty of paid vacation time, more paid leave plus a budget for your CME, and more.
