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.

About Baptist Health Medical Center

BAPTIST HEALTH Medical Center - Little Rock is the largest institution under the BAPTIST HEALTH banner. With a full line of services available, BHMC-LR is equipped to cover the full continuum of health care, from birth to support at lifes' end.

BHMC-LR has always been the leader in heart care and heart transplantation. The need for donor hearts far exceeds the availability. BHMC-LR now offers the latest technology for helping the 5,000,000 Americans suffering from congestive heart failure - the Heart Mate. The HeartMate device is implanted alongside the patient's heart to help the natural heart's pumping capability when required, for activities such as climbing the stairs. The HeartMate allows patients once confined to the ICU to return home and live with very few restrictions while awaiting a transplant. This lowers the costs to the patient and may improve their overall well-being. BAPTIST HEALTH Medical Center - Little Rock was the first hospital in Arkansas to implant this life saving device.

Voted the "Best Place to Have a Baby" for the third year in a row, BHMC-Little Rock Women's Center has expanded and renovated the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to serve premature infants and their families even better!

BHMC-Little Rock opened its Outpatient Center expansion in November of 1998. This 123,000 square-foot facility located on the southern side of the Little Rock Campus, houses the BAPTIST HEALTH Breast Center, BAPTIST HEALTH Heart Center, CARTI and several physician offices.

BAPTIST HEALTH MedFlight is a state-of-the-art air ambulance service that covers the state and the only air ambulance service to make flights where a helicopter pad is not available. This gives MedFlight the ability to serve critically injured patients throughout the state.
