About the Community:
Smyth County Community Hospital is located in historic Marion, Virginia. Marion is the gateway to both Hungry Mother State Park and the highest peak in Virginia, Mount Rogers. Within miles of hiking and biking trails, stocked trout streams and a 500 acre mountain lake, Marion is an ideal place for a vacation - or to call home. Marion is one of the few towns to receive designation as an official Virginia Main Street Community and National Main Street Community.  The town is known for the Lincoln Theatre, which is the home of the nationally syndicated bluegrass music program, “Song of the Mountains”.  Every month from May through December, the town hosts ArtWalk with local artists and musicians.

Physicians are independent contractors and are given base rates with the opportunity to earn productivity pay at specific sites. Valley Emergency Physicians (VEP) provides independent contractors with pension plan administration, flexible schedules, and paid malpractice insurance with tail coverage. Physicians also enjoy the benefit of becoming a stockholder which allows them to be actively involved in the governance of the company.
