An excellent opportunity for a PT/FT BE/BC pediatrician to join a well-established, busy, and growing private pediatric practice consisting of six full- and part-time physicians, six NPs, and one PA. Highland Pediatrics is located in historic Fall River, Massachusetts. We practice high-quality pediatric medicine as one of the premier pediatric practices in the region.
We collaborate closely in a congenial environment, and we occupy inviting office space, much of which has been recently renovated. We see a wide range of pathology, and we utilize a pediatric-specific EMR. We serve a broad spectrum of patients across all pediatric and adolescent ages as well as socioeconomic backgrounds from throughout southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Rhode Island. We have the first and largest active breastfeeding support program with eight certified lactation consultants We have had on-site behavioral health services with a psychiatric nurse practitioner for two years, and we have added a second full-time PSNP at the end of August; as well as a social worker who coordinates care for our neediest Medicaid patients and 2 mental health coordinators. We also have lab, X-ray, and pharmacy services in addition to pediatric ophthalmology, dermatology, orthopedics, and podiatry specialties located in our building and pediatric subspecialists nearby including those from Hasbro (HCH) and Boston Children’s Hospital (CHB) within 5-15 minutes from out office. We are expanding our in-house labs to promote good service with many results being available while patients are in the office.
We see our own newborns at our community hospital which has 24-hour level II nursery coverage for C-sections and complicated neonatal cases. The obstetricians perform all circumcisions. We share call equitably and use a phone triage service for overnight calls. When necessary, we refer complex cases to CHB, HCH, MGH, and BMC. All of our pediatric patients are admitted to facilities with 24-hour care.
Fall River is situated on the shores of Mt. Hope Bay in southeastern Massachusetts, not far from Providence and Newport, and less than one hour’s drive from Boston and Cape Cod. The region offers an abundance of activities such as boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking, and biking. Beaches are nearby on the Atlantic coast, and skiing is available less than two hours north of the city. Area communities have affordable housing and highly rated schools.
Highland Pediatrics is located at Truesdale Health, formerly known as Truesdale Clinic--an historic organization consisting of independent medical practices of varying specialties whose physician tenants, including those or our practice, have the exclusive and unique opportunity to invest equally in the Truesdale medical office building.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits as well as the prospect of early partnership. We encourage partnership and real estate investment, both of which are affordable and designed to grow in value. Ownership value in the practice is expected to grow about 10% annually after inflation, unlike jobs with hospitals or networks. We assist new physicians in acquiring shares in Truesdale which have had recent yields of 10-20% or more and provide a program to assist with loan payback. We pay a salary and bonuses based upon practice performance rather than productivity to promote investment in each others’ success. We look forward to sharing more information about our practice.
