A few years ago one of the two competing local hospitals decided that instead of sharing the caths, TAVRs, admits and CV surgery referrals from our cardiology group (8 cardiologists and one EP) with their competitor they'd offer big subsidies and guarantees to our group and make them employed docs for their system. We went from being the dominant cardiology group in town to not having cardiology in the blink of an eye.
We (Diagnostic Clinic of Longview) are a physician-owned multi-specialty clinic in Northeast Texas (Longview) and are the dominant primary care group in the MSA (50+ PCPs).
Well, after a few years without cardiology we've decided it's time to add that specialty back to the group. We're a referral goldmine for specialists, and our shareholders (about 65) have decided it's time to bring cardiology back into the fold. Our former group has some great cardiologists in it, so we're looking for rockstars.
This isn't an "employment" opportunity, it's a partnership opportunity. Though we provide a guarantee for the first year to help you get on your feet, our model is revenue minus expenses after the initial contract (with a small buy-in for your ownership shares - approximately $10k) and our docs, most especially our specialists, knock it out of the park. Most of our folks are at or near the top of MGMA for their speciality, IF they work. You don't get told when to vacation or how late to stay open or how many patients to see, because YOU are the one who wins or loses, not a system. We add doctors to lower the shared equally expenses of the business office, maintenance, administration, et al, and to increase our leverage with payors.
We have every ancillary you can imagine (from full-line imaging to sleep/DME to a large complex lab), great fee schedules, and a business office that knows how to turn charges into actual revenue.
Longview is a quiet, clean, friendly community of about 85,000 with a service area of about 225,000, and if you are hard-working, friendly, clinically excellent and want to come be the cardiologist of choice for a big referral source, send me an email or a text (my phone has a spam protection because it's readily available online) and I'll call you pronto.
We're going to make a few cardiologists very happy, and one of them might as well be you.
