Anacortes, Washington - Seeking an outstanding BC/BE General Surgeon to join us in our Pacific Northwest paradise: Anacortes, an all-American town close to Seattle and the San Juan Islands. Full-time position. At least two years of experience required. This is an excellent and unusual opportunity to inherit a busy but not frantic general surgical practice in an award-winning hospital, with a stable and satisfied support staff. Endoscopy, GI, colonoscopy, hernia and womenâ€™s health are the majority of surgeries performed, with more GI than would be typical in a program this size because there are no Gastroenterologists in the community.
Call is 1:4; our surgeons are called in about five times per year
PTO (paid time off) starts at 20 days per year, with five additional days off and $3,000 for CME
Compensation is competitive
Loan forgiveness program: $12,000/year/three years
Island Hospital, a Level III trauma center and Level II stroke center, prides itself on placing its patients' emotional and medical needs first. A 43-bed facility, Island Hospital is staffed by more than 190 board certified physicians and offers a quality and range of services typically found in much larger facilities.
Anacortes is a historic city of 16,000 located on the north Puget Sound, a short ferry ride from the famous San Juan Islands and a 90-minute drive from Seattle. Due to fortunate coastal weather patterns, Anacortes receives only 21 inches of rain per year, half as much as Seattle. Among the most popular residents of the area are three pods of orcas (killer whales) who roam the island waters just offshore. With an active, tight-knit community and majestic views of the islands and snow-capped mountains beyond, Anacortes feels like a magical world apart, despite its proximity to Seattle, Everett, Vancouver, B.C. and other large cities.
Island Hospital is the center for health and wellness in west Skagit County, Washington, also serving north Whidbey Island and the San Juan Islands since 1962. Recognized as one of the most innovative small hospitals in the U.S., Island Hospital is an integral part of the great quality of life in this scenic region of northwest Washington.
