New or experienced doctors are welcome.
Join the many providers who relocated to this part of Maine for the lifestyle, and quality of work and patient care they can provide!Become part of a superb medical staff with a 25-bed acute care hospital using state-of-the art technology, and offering a range of specialty services far beyond those expected in a small rural hospital. In addition to primary care, this hospital provides inpatient and outpatient medical, surgical, pediatric, obstetric, gynecologic, and emergency care services, plus specialty care in such areas as otolaryngology, urology, sleep medicine, and more.
This team is deeply committed to quality, patient safety and satisfaction.
If selected, you will provide outpatient primary care services to adult and geriatric patients during weekday business hours only, with no call! You will enjoy working in a recently renovated medical building (with EMR) featuring scenic views and an adjacent walking path.
Most physicians choose a convenient 4 day/week schedule – or opt for 5 shorter days, if you prefer.
The selected doctor will be employed by the hospital, and will earn an excellent base salary with incentive bonuses, plus additional cash to help with student loan debt, if applicable. Benefits include paid relocation and license fees, health and dental insurance, liability insurance with tail coverage, PTO and a budget for CME, a retirement plan with employer matching, and more!
