Emergency Medicine Physician, $60k Commencement Bonus – Manhattan, KS

To our prospective teammates,

I am the medical director for the Sound Physicians emergency medicine (EM) practice at Via Christi Manhattan, in Manhattan, Kansas. I’ve been a part of Sound for the past three years and the emergency medicine team for the past seven years. I extend a warm welcome to physicians who are seeking new opportunities or are embarking on a career change. Allow me to provide you with insights into our organization, focusing on our dedicated people, our clinical practice, and our unwavering purpose as you contemplate your next steps.

  • Join our established, close-knit team of six physicians and two practice providers.
  • We value humor, persistence, and a family-like bond, taking a genuine interest in each other’s lives.
  • All clinicians in the group, physicians and APPs, work and communicate well with each other.
  • We thrive on the diversity of our clinicians, hailing from diverse geographic, educational, and training backgrounds. We continuously learn from one another to approach patient care with fresh perspectives.
  • Your voice matters here. We value the opinions and contributions of our team members when making changes within the team. Strong work ethic, honesty, and patient safety always come first.
  • Teamwork is at the heart of what we do. We are always ready to lend a helping hand – even during procedures and at shift change. Our team works autonomously and can make decisions quickly and efficiently.
  • Many of us are active on hospital committees, including the medical executive committee, which helps solidify our relationships with specialists and our very supportive administration. Clinicians can champion specific projects that help improve care, such as working to update current order sets.
  • We’re proud to offer J1-visa sponsorship through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Conrad 30.
  • Our community-based hospital has an 18-bed emergency department serving over 24,000 annual visits.
  • We’re looking for board-certified/eligible emergency medicine physicians or family medicine physicians with emergency medicine experience.
  • Currently, our shift times are 7 am-3 pm, 3 pm-10 pm, and 9 pm-7 am. These shorter shifts have proven to enhance clinician performance, reduce stress, and increase willingness to support a busy ER environment.
  • We have strong subspecialty support and imaging services, ensuring comprehensive patient care.
  • Regular monthly meetings, both remote and in-person, foster engagement and provide a platform for feedback.
  • Benefits include medical, dental, vision, life and AD&D insurance, long- and short-term disability, 401k with match, paid medical malpractice and tail coverage, and annual CME allowance.
  • Our top priority is always the well-being of our patients.
  • Sound’s focus on growth and development is a key feature, where teammates can expand their careers locally and within the broader medical group.
  • We’re a community-minded team and encourage our team members who want to contribute in and out of the hospital to help make our local community thrive.

Manhattan is one of the fastest-growing communities in Kansas. Bill Snyder Stadium at Kansas State University is across the street from the hospital. The college town atmosphere provides diverse recreational opportunities and a strong sense of community, making it an attractive place for those seeking a more relaxed lifestyle in a welcoming environment.
