Machias, Maine: We are looking for a capable, dedicated Emergency Medicine Physician to come to this charming coastal community in the heart of beautiful Downeast Maine!
Physicians with J1 or H1b visas are encouraged to apply.
New or experienced physicians, Emergency Medicine, Family Practice or Internal Medicine trained, are welcome here!
You are invited to 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 within 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.
Qualified ED candidates will be capable of working independently – you will be the sole provider in the modern 6-bed ER during your shift. Our client is the only hospital within a 50+ mile radius, providing care to some 35,000 area residents. Still, the ED averages just 25 visits per day. While they have a host of per-diem physicians who cover ER shifts, they have decided to add an additional full time physician to the ED staff – resulting in this newly announced position.
The incoming physician will work an average of 12 to 14 12-hour shifts per month. On rare occasions, there may be a need to work a 24-hour shift.
If selected, you will be employed by the hospital, and will earn an excellent hourly rate with big overtime pay for select holidays. Additional benefits include paid relocation and license fees, health and dental insurance, paid liability insurance with tail coverage, PTO and a budget for CME, a retirement plan with employer matching, and more! Cash assistance with your student loan debt is also provided, if applicable.
Machias sits on Maine’s rocky coast midway between Bangor (Maine’s 3rd largest city) and Maine’s eastern border with Canada. This quiet New England town presents a real opportunity for those seeking “the traditional Maine way of life.”
Local harbors are dotted with working boats and pleasure craft. In town, browse antique and other shops, art galleries, and fabulous restaurants. Students can choose from four high schools in the area, and three local colleges offer a variety of career training and degree programs. Home options include ocean views, lakefront living, historic farms, or in-town homes. Known as the “Blueberry Capital of the World,” Machias hosts an annual festival each August when the streets of downtown come alive with delicious food, art, crafts, and entertainment for the whole family.
Settle in an area known for scenic vistas, fascinating wildlife, and recreational options galore in every season. Enjoy an immense quality of life in one of the safest small towns in New England!
Machias is 65 miles from Acadia National Park, 200 miles from Portland, 380 miles from Montreal, and 500 miles from New York City. This scenic part of Downeast Maine is worth your consideration.
