Our client, Ochsner Hospital for Children in New Orleans, Louisiana, is seeking an Associate Chair to lead the unification, standardization and expansion of pediatric primary care services across Ochsner Health System. The recipient of numerous awards, Ochsner recently received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Children, a distinction that recognizes exceptional children’s services ranked above the national average for patient safety; and it ranks among Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospitals for Clinical Excellence, which places Ochsner in the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for clinical outcomes.
The ideal candidate for this position is a board certified primary care physician with leadership skills and administrative experience who has successfully developed and/or overseen the operations of a multisite pediatric primary care network. MBA, MHA or MMM degree is desirable, in addition to medical degree and board certification.
Ochsner Hospital for Children is home to a rapidly growing team of more than 120 physicians, including pediatric subspecialists and a full spectrum of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialty teams. The group is the region’s leading integrated provider of multispecialty care for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults offering a full range of pediatric services, including solid organ transplantation and pediatric cardiovascular surgery. The current facilities include a 52-bed Level III-C NICU, a 26-bed PICU (14-bed PICU and 12-bed CVICU), and a 30-bed General Pediatric Unit as well as a free-standing ambulatory center for children housing primary care and subspecialists. Located in one of our most vibrant cultural cities, this nonprofit, academic, multi-specialty institution also has a combined pediatrics residency program with Tulane University Medical School. Medical students from Tulane and the University of Queensland/Ochsner Clinical School rotate through the division. The successful candidate will be eligible for an academic appointment commensurate with experience.
The appeal of living in New Orleans is absolutely undeniable. The city exudes a character all its own and residents have a passionate attitude to life. New Orleans is an unparalleled blend of cultures. Regarded as a city of neighborhoods, New Orleans is best traveled by foot, but you can also hop on one of the city’s historic streetcars or join the growing legion of commuters by bicycle. NOLA’s neighborhoods each have a distinct architectural flavor and include everything from traditional Antebellum style to historic bungalows and cottages to modern lofts. Professional sports, gorgeous city parks, year-round festivals, prestigious academic centers and universities, and Southern hospitality are only the beginning. The local economy is diverse, with oil and gas, tourism, shipbuilding and aerospace among the top industries, along with health care and education; several world-class colleges and universities are situated here. If you’re craving the beach, the Gulf Shores of Alabama are about two and a half hours away by car; and the white sands of Pensacola, Florida, are just three hours away. It’s easy to understand why residents take great pride in calling New Orleans their home.
