Emergency Medicine Physician, Multi Coverage Dynamic Team and $50,000 Commencement Bonus – Nogales, AZ

To our prospective teammates,

I am the medical director for Carondelet Holy Cross in Nogales, Arizona. I’ve been a part of Sound Physicians for the past five years. I extend a warm welcome to emergency medicine physicians who seek 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:

People 
  • We’re a hardworking, close-knit team of seven physicians and three advanced practice providers (APPs) who 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.
  • We want to keep the team involved and hear their opinions and voice when making changes within the team. We value strong work ethic and honesty, and patient safety always comes 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.
  • Many of us are active on hospital committees, including the medical executive committee, which helps solidify our relationships with specialists and our supportive administration. Clinicians can champion specific projects that help improve care, such as working to update current order sets.
Practice
  • We are a critical access hospital with a ten-bed emergency department overseeing 15,000 visits annually.
  • We’re looking for board-certified/eligible emergency medicine physicians.
  • We work alongside Sound’s hospital medicine team for a smooth transition.
  • Currently, we work 12-hour shifts to allow for a good work-life balance. We’re always there to support each other when covering shifts. We have an APP who works a ten-hour shift per day.
  • We see high-acuity patients and admit over 20% of our patients.
  • We have access to the following subspecialists: OB, general surgery, peds, and hospital medicine.
  • Regular monthly meetings, both remote and in-person, foster engagement and provide a platform for feedback.
  • Long-standing relationship with the Carondelet healthcare system.
  • Ability to be cross-credentialed at other Carondelet sites
  • We offer both 1099 and W2 options for employment.
  • W2-employed physicians are eligible for benefits. 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.
Purpose
  • Our top priority is always the well-being of our patients.
  • Focusing on growth and development is a key feature at Sound, 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.

Nogales, Arizona, may appeal to individuals seeking a diverse cultural experience due to its location on the U.S.-Mexico border, fostering a unique blend of American and Mexican influences. Additionally, the region offers a relatively mild climate, with opportunities for outdoor activities and proximity to the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
