Quaint rural community in Western New York in close proximity to both Buffalo (to the West) and Rochester (to the East) NY is seeking a BC/BE General Surgeon to replace a retiring surgeon of 34 years! Our facility has historically had two full time general surgeons practicing in the community. One of those surgeons has announced his planned retirement. Our surgeons currently perform basic community general surgery. Our facility also has a contract to provide surgery services for the NYS Department of Corrections.
The area’s rural nature includes being home to one of the largest and most beautiful state parks in the East (Letchworth State Park which is a 15 mile long park including a number of camp grounds, miles of hiking trails and through which the Genesee River has developed numerous waterfalls and a deep river gorge – was voted the # 1 State Park in the U.S. in 2015). This area is also home to Silver Lake and is near the Upstate New York Finger Lakes Region rich with beautiful wine country. In addition to Rochester and Buffalo, major nearby cities include Toronto Ontario, Pittsburgh, Pa. and Cleveland, Oh., each of which is only approximately a three hour drive.
This practice is a county-owned facility providing inpatient and outpatient diagnostic, acute, ambulatory, inpatient behavioral health and long term skilled nursing services. It is the only hospital facility in the county and only comparable facility within a 35 mile radius. This facility is currently certified for the following bed counts; Medical/Surgical 40, Intensive Care 5, Maternity, 5, Psychiatric 12, and Skilled Nursing Facility 138.
In 2014, the facility completed a $32,000,000 addition and renovation which includes a new lobby, registration and emergency department as well as completely renovated maternity floor, major renovations to the skilled nursing facility, ambulatory surgery and other areas within the complex.
The facility recently finalized a relationship with a much larger hospital based in Buffalo, NY whereby this hospital will provide significant administrative support and key specialty providers to the facility.
This facility has recruited many new physicians in the past two years and developed a quality, cooperative team that enjoys providing healthcare in a friendly, rural environment.
