Physician - Gastroenterology

Little Rock, AR 72211

Specialty Gastroenterology
Profession Physician

Baptist Health of Arkansas, in conjunction with Arkansas Health Group (AHG), is seeking Gastroenterologists to join an existing team of three physicians. This is a new group and the recruitment need is growth related.

Currently all three physicians practice as GI hospitalists at Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock (BHMC-LR). They also perform outpatient procedures but do not see patients in an outpatient clinic. The current model is each physician rotates through a week of being the primary hospitalist, a week as a secondary hospitalist, and a week off. The patient volume for both hospitalists is 40-60 patients per day. During the week that they are not in the hospitalist rotation they perform outpatient procedures in the BHMC-LR GI lab. The recruitment need is for a GI physician to practice in the outpatient clinic and to help with some inpatient work. The outpatient clinic is located in the medical tower adjacent to BHMC-LR. BHMC-LR is the 827-bed flagship hospital of the nine hospital Baptist Health System.

There is an additional recruitment need at Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway (BHMC-C), which is 22 miles from the Little Rock campus. The Conway recruitment need is for a GI hospitalist to join the existing group but to practice specifically in Conway with no outpatient clinic responsibility. BHMC-C is a 111-bed hospital that opened in September 2016.

AHG is the employed physician group for Baptist Health. As an employed position the compensation consists of a salary, production bonus, and quarterly quality incentives.
