Neonatologist Opportunities – Neonatology Site Director

Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Wilkes-Barre, PA

Everything we do is about caring — for our patients, our members, our Geisinger family of physicians and employees, and our communities.

Geisinger is seeking an experienced Board-Certified Neonatologist to serve as Site Director of Neonatology at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. This is an excellent opportunity for a dynamic neonatologist to utilize superior leadership and interpersonal skills to recruit two additional neonatologists and one neonatal nurse practitioner to staff a regional referral center serving Northeast Pennsylvania. Qualified applicants are expected to have demonstrated superior clinical and leadership skills. Experience in hospital administration and quality improvement are desired. The Site Director will report to the Director of Newborn Services for Geisinger. An academic appointment is available through the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.

Currently, the Geisinger Wyoming Valley NICU is a 12-bed, private-room level 2 unit located immediately adjacent to labor a delivery, built in 2011 to serve the citizens of Luzerne County, PA. The NICU receives 250 annual inborn admissions, participates in the Vermont-Oxford Network database, and serves as a training site for medical students from the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine.

The Site Director will be charged with developing the GWV NICU from its current level 2 capabilities, staffed by 2 neonatologists, into a level 3 NICU providing 24/7 delivery room and NICU coverage. The Site Director will be responsible for managing the physician group, collaborating with maternal fetal medicine, obstetrics, nursing and ancillary services. Ongoing outcomes assessment, maximizing patient satisfaction, and participation in system-wide NICU committees are expectations. The Site Director will maintain a close clinical and administrative relationship with Geisinger’s Director of Newborn Services.

Geisinger, one of the nation’s largest health services organizations, serves more than 3 million residents throughout 45 counties in central, south-central and northeast Pennsylvania. The system is comprised of approximately 30,000 employees, including a 1,600-member multi-specialty group practice, 13 hospital campuses, two research centers and a 583,000-member health plan, and a commitment to medical education, research and community service.

Join the team that America is watching.

David T. Feinberg, MD, who began his tenure as president and chief executive officer of Geisinger Health System last year, said it best: “Practicing at Geisinger is a tremendous opportunity to further your career at an organization that is having an impact on healthcare throughout the United States. America definitely pays attention to what we are doing here, and we welcome the opportunity to set an example as we provide innovative and compassionate care and better serve our patients.” **Does not qualify for J-1 waiver.
