KRC.0118.0904.05 - We are looking for a Family Medicine physician to join our US Military based community hospital as a civilian provider. Our Army hospital located in Northeast Kansas on an active duty Army instillation! We serve a population of nearly 50,000 active duty soldiers, family members, and retirees in the community. The hospital is located in the beautiful rolling Flint Hills region of the Midwest; nestled between two cities (pop.17,000), one of which is home to a university town (pop. 57,000). The local area has an abundance of outdoor activities where you'll find unlimited opportunities to fish, hike, swim, and explore! Enjoy BigXII college sports and entertainment, as well as a thriving night life and culinary experience. Experience travel simplified at the Regional Airport. For international travel, Kansas City International Airport is only two hours away.
The hospital is a 47-bed hospital designed with the latest medical engineering technology to deliver the best care to our soldiers and mission partners, their families, and our retirees. The hospital was smartly built to accommodate an increase in patient capacity or future growth on Army base. As of summer 2016, the hospital serves 49,426 eligible beneficiaries. On a typical day, it sees 1,594 clinical patients, fills 1,805 prescriptions, runs 1,587 laboratory procedures, performs 11 surgical cases, and delivers three babies.
The new hospital incorporates Evidence-Based Design which influences modern healthcare facility design to promote patient healing and staff well-being. The L-shape design separates the inpatient care from the outpatient care clinics. The staff uses their own hallways and elevators outside of the “L.” This frees up space for patients and visitors. The layout provides the shortest reasonable path from check-in to exam. It also eases the transition from one department to another should a patient require additional care. All reception areas in the outpatient side are in the atrium, giving a greater sense of openness. The atrium, or “glass wall,” lets in natural light and provides a passive solar heat in the cooler months while reducing it in hotter seasons. The hospital celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 1st Infantry Division with the opening of the new hospital in 2016.
Civilian employees serve a vital role in supporting the Army mission. They provide the skills that are not readily available in the military, but crucial to support military operations. The Army integrates the talents and skills of its military and civilian members to form a Total Army. As a civilian employee on #TeamIACH, you are a federal employee. You are not in the Army, you are not deployed, forced to moved, and you don't wear a uniform. You'll work alongside our men and women in uniform who also serve as healthcare professionals.
Full federal benefits package: very competitive pay (annual salary with incentives), ample vacation + separate sick leave, relocation assistance, professional medical liability insurance, student loan reimbursement opportunities (up to $10,000 a year for six years, comes with a service commitment), 5% investment matching, retirement, health, dental, vision, life + long term insurance. Any state license works for you to practice at our facility (no need to get a KS license!)
We look forward talking with about joining our team!
