Hospitalist – Fort Worth, TX

To prospective team members,

As the system medical director for Sound’s hospitalist practice at Texas Health Cleburne in Cleburne, Texas, I extend a warm invitation to consider becoming a part of our dynamic team. With nearly a decade of experience within this organization, I take pride in the hospital medicine program we’ve built.

As you explore this opportunity to join my team as medical director, I’m excited to provide you with insight into our people, practice, and purpose.

People
  • Our healthcare teams are adaptable, responding to patient conditions, treatment plans, and organizational policies, recognizing the dynamic nature of healthcare.
  • We foster a cohesive, mutually supportive team with a common goal of delivering high-quality care to our patients.
  • My leadership style combines servant and transformational leadership, emphasizing team members’ development, collaboration, and a positive, supportive culture.
  • We value a solution-oriented mindset, clear communication, and a proactive approach in hospital committees and quality improvement projects.
  • We bring positive attitudes every day with a willingness to adapt, learn, and grow.
  • The organization upholds core values of quality, service, integrity, teamwork, and innovation. There is a shortage of strong clinical leaders in healthcare; I wanted to rise to the occasion and be a force multiplier.
Practice
  • We measure outcomes with the AdventHealth Dashboard, developed in collaboration with experts at the Society of Hospital Medicine. O/E metrics are individualized to the patient based on documentation.
  • Our program has achieved and sustained GMLOS O/E <1, mortality 5-star score, highly regarded multidisciplinary rounds, and low physician turnover.
  • Leaders play a crucial role in fostering a positive and supportive working environment, ultimately contributing to better patient outcomes.
  • Physicians must be board-certified in internal medicine, advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS), and basic life-saving techniques (BLS).
  • Shifts are seven on/seven off (7 a.m. to 7 p.m.). You support cases remotely, when on call, and it is rare to get calls after 7 p.m.
Purpose
  • Our goal is to provide value to our partner hospital through active committee involvement, ensuring high-quality clinical care in various fields. Committees we’re involved with include med exec, sepsis, stroke, chest pain, clinical pertinence, glycemic, readmissions, mortality reviews, pharmacy, and therapeutics.
  • Community support initiatives focus on evidence-based healthcare, collaboration with primary care providers, and addressing prevalent challenges such as an aging population and substance abuse.

If you’re considering relocation, our team offers a supportive and innovative medical environment, while Cleburne provides an affordable, small-town lifestyle proximate to larger urban centers like Fort Worth (32 miles) and Dallas (50 miles). Mansfield, Arlington, Aledo, and Midlothian are all conveniently located about 30 miles away. Other large cities such as Plano (69 miles) and Weatherford (41 miles) are drivable. Austin is significantly farther away, located 164 miles from Cleburne.
