To prospective hospitalist teammates,

I’m the medical director for the Sound Physicians team at Northwest Medical Center in the heart of Amarillo, Texas. With over a decade of service at Northwest and seven years at Sound, I can confidently say that we’ve built something special in the realm of hospital medicine. As you weigh your career options, allow me to shed light on who we are, what we do, and what we stand for – our peoplepractice, and purpose.

  • We’re a cohesive team with 10 physicians and a clinical performance nurse.
  • Our team is a unique blend of clinicians with diverse geographic, educational, and training backgrounds. We pride ourselves on our strong medical skillset, unwavering ethics, and our stellar record of patient satisfaction. In fact, we’re known as the best hospitalist team in town.
  • Within the hospital, we maintain strong relationships with our colleagues. Our medical director and associate medical director lead the Medical Executive and Peer Review committees. Additionally, we hold positions as the president and president-elect of the Medical Staff Committee. Some of our physicians are actively involved in committees such as chest pain, critical care, and management.
  • Amarillo is a diverse and welcoming community, offering a small-town feel with fantastic amenities. Enjoy hiking in Palo Duro Canyon, less than 20 minutes away, or take a half-hour drive to the Colorado or New Mexico mountains for hiking and skiing. Amarillo boasts incredible sunrises, sunsets, and pleasant weather for most of the year.
  • We proudly offer J1-visa sponsorship through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
  • Our hospital features an open ICU with a total of 480 beds. We are currently seeking board-certified candidates with expertise in intubation and central lines. Physicians with a background in internal and family medicine (with at least two years of hospitalist experience) are welcome to apply.

  • We foster a family-like environment within our team, complete with a friendly nursing staff and an exceptional C-Suite. We have an experienced case management team with years of service and top-notch social workers.
  • We use CERNER and have access to our internal informatics platform.

Nocturnists can expect a base salary of $365,000 annually based on the same shift frequency. Additionally, we offer quality and productivity incentives.
  • Our benefits package includes medical, dental, vision, life, and AD&D insurance, long- and short-term disability coverage, 401k with a match, paid medical malpractice and tail coverage, as well as an annual CME allowance.
  • At Sound Physicians, our patients always come first.
  • We strongly support the growth and development of our hospital medicine practice, enabling you to explore new opportunities locally and within the broader medical group.
