Job Details

SSM Health Dean Medical Group, a 450+ physician multi-specialty group based in Madison, WI is actively recruiting an OB/GYN Nocturnist to join our group. This position has flexibility with the fte, and can be part-time (.5 -. 79 fte), or full time (.8 - .85 fte).

Our OB/GYN Madison team currently consists of 10 well established generalist OB/GYN physicians, 1 Urogynecologist, 3 Perinatologists, 1 other Nocturnist, 4 Certified Nurse Midwives, & 10 Advanced Practitioners. The team is highly respected & well-recognized by their peers for their exceptional skills & high quality of care. We take pride in participating in the University of Wisconsin OB/GYN Residency Program. We also actively train University of Wisconsin Family Medicine Residents on our labor & delivery floor. As such, we are looking for candidates who have interest in physician resident teaching.

The typical Nocturnist schedule is 10 pm - 8 am in-house coverage for Labor & Delivery, Emergency Room and OB/GYN inpatients at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison from Sunday through Friday, every other week. Qualified candidates should be board certified/eligible and comfortable in caring for high risk obstetrical patients. In addition, candidates should be skilled in providing surgical management of common OB/GYN conditions (ie: ectopic pregnancy, incomplete abortion, ovarian cysts, etc.)

The St. Mary's Hospital Family Birth Center provides comprehensive, family-centered services including labor, delivery, postpartum, & newborn care. Services are provided for both high-risk & low-risk pregnancies and newborns. Over 2,300 babies are delivered at St. Mary's each year, and care is provided for approximately 500 fragile newborns in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The competent & caring nursing staff of the Family Birth Center strives to honor every family's individual birth plan within a private, home-like environment.

The birthing suites provide private rooms for the labor, delivery, & recovery period, and three cesarean section operating rooms. The unit was designed to enhance privacy & family involvement at all stages of the birthing process. Care after birth is provided in private rooms in the Family Care Suites where we encourage family participation in the care of the newborn. Though most babies room with their mothers, St. Mary's nursery staff offers skilled care & a tender touch if needed. St. Mary's has officially been designated as a Baby-Friendly® Hospital, and meets the high standards set by the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) for providing the best possible breastfeeding support for mother & baby in the maternity setting.

The Antepartum Obstetrical unit provides care to women who are hospitalized before delivery due to complications of pregnancy.

The St. Mary's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) was the first facility in the state of Wisconsin to care for critically ill newborns. The NICU, which is a Level III unit, has 31 beds, and is staffed by six neonatologists as well as many nurses who specialize in the care of 490 critically ill newborns annually.
