Physician Opportunity

Hospitalist -
Imagine a hospital with a focus on high-quality care that's also close to the beach. That's us...Dosher Memorial Hospital in historic Southport, N.C. The Dosher Medical Staff is composed of more than 100 physicians and other professional providers in 20 specialties, and we are seeking Hospitalists to join our stellar team of clinicians who staff the 25-bed Patient Care Unit at the hospital.

Dosher is an independent, critical access hospital with an engaged and highly supportive Board of Trustees and Management Team. All decisions are made locally. We have no long delays for an "answer from corporate."

While not a part of New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Wilmington, we have a close working relationship with this acute-care hospital and its network providers, several of whom soon will be tenants at Dosher Wellness Center, a 26,000-square-foot medical complex that opened last year.

We try to think big and move fast and that applies to our physician recruitment efforts. We offer a competitive compensation and relocation package. Beyond our physician recruiter, current members of our staff are eager to speak to employed physician candidates about the benefits of joining the Dosher team.

Our mission
The mission of Dosher is to be the "Friendliest, most patient-focused" hospital in North Carolina.

Our vision
To ensure that our mission becomes reality, Dosher Memorial Hospital will:
Adopt evidence-based medicine practices - Our physicians and other clinical professionals will adopt best practices to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible.
Adopt evidence-based leadership practices - We'll implement proven tools and techniques that result in service excellence for our patients and a better work environment for our employees.
Focus on the team - We'll train staff on best practices and hire new people who have the technical skills and values required for high-performing teams.
Track outcomes - We'll measure our performance to ensure that we're meeting the quality, financial and service excellence results needed to excel in a competitive healthcare environment.

Our community
Dosher is just west of downtown Southport, about one mile from the Cape Fear River and six miles from the closest beach at Oak Island. We are close to highly rate golf courses, fishing charters, and several top-rated housing developments. Our primary service area is Smithville Township (alphabetically, Bald Head Island, Caswell Beach, Oak Island, Southport and St. James) and surrounding communities. We are a 30-mile drive to Wilmington and 60 miles from Myrtle Beach. Southport also is home to the Fourth of July Festival Parade, and Dosher sponsors this annual event that draws more than 10,000 people to the state's official 4th of July parade. For more information on the community, please call the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce at 910-457-6964.

Meanwhile, Dosher worked with Brunswick County Health Department, New Hope Clinic and YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina to apply for and receive a $450,000 grant from The Duke Endowment's Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas program. Together, the four organizations formed the Brunswick County Community Wellness Coalition to improve the health and wellness of Brunswick County residents. While Dosher is the fiscal agent for the grant, the Coalition was the recipient. For more information on the Coalition, call 910-457-3850.
