We are seeking two full-time pediatric hospitalists for a newly-developed pediatric hospital medicine service in a community hospital setting in southeast Idaho. Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center is a regional medical center which draws patients from eastern Idaho, western Wyoming, and southern Montana. The hospital is 318 beds with an active Level II Trauma Center and a regional burn center which also serves pediatric patients. There is a 6-bed Pediatric ICU, 10-bed Pediatric Unit, and 26-bed Level III Neonatal ICU. There are over 1200 deliveries per year and this service continues to grow.
The role of a pediatric hospitatlist at EIRMC includes caring for medical patients on the Pediatric Unit, consulting on pediatric patients in the emergency department, consulting on surgical patients, and caring for newborn infants who do not require NICU-level care. Pediatric physician staff include both pediatric intensivists and neonatologists as part of the MEDNAX team. At EIRMC there are additional pediatric sub-specialists representing pediatric neurology, endocrinology, cardiology, surgery, and anesthesia.

EIRMC has an active family medicine residency in its second year of existence, with residents rotating through the inpatient pediatric and newborn care services. There is an opportunity for faculty appointment with the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine, if desired. There are growth opportunities for the pediatric hospitalist within the areas of quality and process improvement projects, and clinical research of a unique patient population.
