If it’s possible, you will find it at Atrium Health—the leading community-focused academic healthcare system serving North Carolina and South Carolina. We invite Board Eligible/Board Certified General Surgery Physicians to discover all that we can do when we bring healing hearts, inquisitive minds and progressive visionaries together in our Atrium Health Lincoln practice.
Atrium Health/Advocate Health is an innovative healthcare organization committed to providing health, hope and healing in our communities. We are committed to Being the Best Place for Care for patients, and the Best Place to Care for our healthcare workforce and teammates.
Small and rural communities face unique challenges in providing access to highest quality, coordinated and collaborative care close to home for patients. General Surgery represents an essential service to all of our acute inpatient facilities. Our mission requires that we find innovative solutions to the challenges of surgical care at small community hospitals. These solutions must advance quality, optimize the care at the local facility and facilitate coordination of care when specialists or tertiary level of care is required.
Atrium Health is recruiting a BC/BE general surgeon interested in emergency general surgery to join our team at AH Lincoln, a 100-bed acute care hospital in Lincolnton, NC. The surgeon will play a vital role in elevating the care of urgent and emergent general surgical patients at the facility. This surgeon will cover urgent/emergent general surgical needs and partner with two established general surgeons who participate in call coverage in addition to elective practice. The two surgeons and their APPs function as a team in a collegial, collaborative environment.
The EGS focused surgeon will work 7days on/7days off schedule, with competitive salary, benefits and bonus structure. Endoscopy experience is beneficial but not required. The surgeon will provide some limited clinic coverage during the work weeks, primarily for urgent needs and hospital followups. Surgeons at Lincoln have the benefit of coordination of care with specialists such as interventional radiology, HPB, bariatrics, plastic surgery, colorectal, gynecological oncology and others at two regional tertiary referral centers.
Atrium Health is also committed to the professional development of surgeons. Through the AH Acute Care Surgery Network, all surgeons providing care of the EGS/trauma/Surgical Critical Care patient have the opportunity to participate in a monthly call, research and education opportunities and specific projects to advance the care or urgent general surgical patients across the system. Leadership structures align community surgeons with mentors locally and across the region and facilitate pathways to impact positive change. In addition, the AH Medical Group is renowned for its advanced programs around physician leadership development, physician well-being and career development.
With majestic mountains on the west and Lake Norman on the east, Lincolnton is a small town that offers a pleasant lifestyle with plenty of activities.
