Envision Physician Services is seeking a board eligible or board certified Neonatologist to join our busy 45‐bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Huntsville Hospital. The NICU in Huntsville has been designated as a Regional Referral Center by the state of Alabama. This designation keeps the unit full with an average daily census that is typically in the 50s. The care of these neonates is managed by 5 Neonatologists who take call from home and 8 NNPs who are in‐house 24/7. The NNPs are employees of the hospital, and they manage the care of the high acuity patients in conjunction with the Neonatologist who is on call for the day.
These Neonatologists take a team approach to patient care and work together on a daily basis to ensure the best care for patients with the best outcomes. With a flexible and collegial working environment, the group takes care of each other when it comes to scheduling to ensure there is work/life balance for all. In the current structure, the group works together and cares for all the patients all the time. However, the group is open to looking at the schedule once they identify the 5th Neonatologist who will complete the practice.
Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children is a member of the Huntsville Hospital Health System. The facility offers the most advanced pediatric healthcare in the region including pediatric emergency services, pediatric intensive care, level III neonatal intensive care, and pediatric surgery.

They also provide specialist health care for women including women’s surgery, OB emergency department, MFM support, the F. Joseph Kelly Adult Intensive Care Unit, the Breast Center, and the Maternity services department which welcomes more babies than any other hospital in Alabama.
