Mount Carmel Health System has an excellent full time opportunity for Board Certified or Board Eligible Thoracic Surgeons to join a Thoracic Surgery team at Mount Carmel East, Mount Carmel St. Ann's and Mount Carmel Grove City located in Columbus, Ohio.
Additional Thoracic Surgeons are needed due to unmet demand and growth. All aspects of General Thoracic Surgery are included, both benign and malignant, except for transplantation. This program encompasses Mount Carmel East, Mount Carmel St. Ann's and Mount Carmel Grove City campuses located just outside the Columbus beltway. The vision is each physician will have a home base and provide coverage to all campuses when on call. The Thoracic Surgery program is supported by a DaVinci Xi robot at all three campuses, 17 pulmonary/critical care physicians and a well-established Multi-Disciplinary Tumor Board associated with the Zangmeister Cancer Clinic.
The new surgeons will join a group of four other Cardiothoracic Surgeons (previously trained and/or employed at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Texas Heart Institute, Brooke Army Medical Center, University of Freiburg Medical Center and Newark Beth Israel Medical Center). Call coverage will be 1:6. The team currently includes three dedicated Cardiac Surgeons and one surgeon that practices both Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery.
The ideal candidates will have the vision and excitement to grow the Thoracic Surgery volume and will have the opportunity to lead the General Thoracic Surgery group.
