Intensivist – Lufkin, TX

To our prospective teammates,

I am the medical director for CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Hospital located in Lufkin, Texas. I have been a part of Sound for 2 years. I’m proud of the intensivist practice we have built and welcome interest from physicians coming out of training or desiring a career change. I’d like to share more about it, specifically about our people, practice, and purpose, as you consider options:

  • We are an established team of full-time, part-time, and PRN practicing intensivist physicians with a pulmonary/critical care training background.
  • Our team members live within driving distance of Lufkin and stay local when working shifts.
  • We work collaboratively with our Sound Hospitalist team providing patient care continuity.

Practice

  • Our ICU is comprised of medical, surgical, and cardiovascular surgery patients. The hospital is a Joint Commission Certified Primary Care Stroke Center and CHEST Pain Center.
  • Our team meets monthly for intensivist team meetings in addition to practice guidelines meetings held every other week for all ICU team members.
  • Most of us like to spend time with our families or in the outdoors, so a flexible schedule is available, and we cover for each other when we’re out.

  • We are looking for board-certified or board-eligible critical care physicians (MD or DO).
Purpose
  • We put patients first. Always.
  • A focus on growth and development is a key feature of Sound Medical Group practices, where teammates can expand their careers here 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.
