Pulmonary Critical Care Physician
Lung Associates of Sarasota wishes to invite qualified physicians to join our practice on the beautiful southwest coast of Florida. We have positions available for a qualified general pulmonary critical care physician and an interventional pulmonologist. Our independent, private practice group currently has 12 physicians and 7 advanced practice providers and wishes to expand to meet the growing demands in the region. Our physicians provide a mix of pulmonary and critical care, with approximately 60% of our time devoted to hospital care and 40% to outpatient pulmonary practice.
Adjacent to the hospital, our office practice draws regional referrals for the full spectrum of pulmonary disorders. The office overlooks downtown Sarasota and Sarasota Bay, uses a fully electronic record accessible off site, and houses a full PFT lab and digital imaging. Our board-certified sleep physicians supervise an accredited sleep lab intrinsic to the practice.
A dedicated, well-equipped interventional bronchoscopy suite with state-of-the-art equipment is run by experienced therapists at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, adjacent to the office. Anesthesia services are readily available for procedural support. Current interventional procedures include endobronchial ultrasound, robotic navigational bronchoscopy, endobronchial debulking, balloon dilation, electrocautery, cryotherapy, Argon laser coagulation, airway stenting, endobronchial valve placement, bronchial thermoplasty, rigid bronchoscopy and Pleurx catheter placement. Sarasota Memorial Hospital has an active multi-disciplinary tumor board, and the current lung cancer screening program has been recognized as a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance. The opening of a cancer center on the campus of the main hospital in October 2021 is anticipated to increase the need for thoracic oncology procedures.

Night and weekend coverage is shared equally among the group. Advanced practice provider support is present in the office and hospital, including nighttime. The hospital system anticipates opening a satellite hospital in 2021, providing opportunity for expansion of the group.
