Flowers Hospital is seeking a Cardiothoracic Surgeon in an employed arrangement.

Cardiothoracic surgery started at Flowers Hospital in 1986. It was a shared and very active service between two facilities, Flowers Hospital and Southeast Health (formally known as Southeast Alabama Medical Center). In approximately 2013 the group became employed by Southeast Health, but kept a contract to continue to cover CV surgery at Flowers Hospital. However, in 2015 the two hospitals developed their own CV surgery programs and Flowers Hospital hired a dedicated surgeon.

The CV surgery program is supported by four very well respected and busy full-time cardiologists, two of whom are interventional.  Flowers Hospital has four rooms in its busy cath lab as well as full cardiology diagnostics and rehab programs.  The program can produce upward of over 150 CV surgeries per year.  Flowers Hospital has a large catchment area of over 300,000 people with a high incidence of cardiac illness and co-morbidities.  The CV program currently has a full-time nurse practitioner/RNFA and is supported by 24/7 perfusion coverage.  A highly skilled OR team is available that routinely performs complex heart and vascular cases.  We recently purchased new heart and perfusion equipment, so we have best-in-class capabilities. Dedicated operating room block time is scheduled for the specialty. The surgeon would have ample office space co-located with other surgeons in a physician office building attached to the hospital.  The anesthesiology program is very strong, with physicians who live and work in the community and have deep CV surgery experience.  An MDA or CRNA is available 24/7 in-house. 

The structure of the program is one full-time CV surgeon and one full-time nurse practitioner.  The surgeon would be required to be on-call the propensity of the month with periodic locum tenenes support for time-off and holidays.  The surgeon must live in the Dothan area for rapid response in emergent cases.  

Comprehensive Financial Package may include the following:

  • Competitive Salary: $800,000+
  • Incentive bonus based on WRUVs - $70/WRVU
  • Commencement Bonus ($50,000)
  • potential for Medical Education Debt Assistance
  • Relocation expenses

  • CME

  • Vacation, health, dental, vision benefits

  • Licensure, Dues, Subscriptions

Flowers Hospital is a 235-bed healthcare facility offering inpatient, outpatient, medical, surgical, diagnostic and emergency care for the Dothan community. We believe in the power of people to create great care. We're 1,350 healthcare professionals strong. We are a major referral center for the Tri-State area of south Alabama, southwest Georgia and northwest Florida. And we work hard every day to be a place of healing, caring and connection for patients and families in the community we call home. 

Dothan, AL

Dothan is a wonderful community of approximately 60,000 residents. The work-week population, however, grows to almost 300,000 which would allow any new specialty provider to enter into a busy practice early on.  Dothan has low crime rates and is an excellent community to raise a family with affordable housing.  Dothan has an airport that offers multiple flights per day into and out of Atlanta, GA.  Dothan is also within a 1.5 hour drive to the beautiful beaches of Destin and Panama City Beach, FL.
