Opportunity Description

Commonwealth Health is seeking a board certified TAVR-trained Cardiothoracic Surgeon to join a large hospital employed multi-specialty group.

Commonwealth Health offers a competitive compensation package including relocation allowance, medical education debt reimbursement, CME allowances, and bonuses for the right candidate.   

Commonwealth Health, the largest network of hospitals in Northeastern Pennsylvania, continues to combine vast medical resources to enhance the quality of patient care throughout the region. Collectively, the hospitals of Commonwealth Health earned significant recognition in cardiac care, including Cardiac Cath Lab Accreditation – American College of Cardiology (Regional Hospital first in the nation),  Atrial Fibrillation with EP Services  (Regional Hospital only hospital in PA), Mission Lifetime STEMI Receiving Aware, Cycle V Chest Pain Accreditation – Society for Cardiovascular Patient Care, Certified Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program – American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Echocardiography Accreditation – Intersocietal Accreditation Commission, and Vascular Testing Accreditation – Intersocietal Accreditation Commission.    

 The area is only a short drive, two hours, from New York City and Philadelphia and also includes Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport offering easy access to major hubs around the U.S.

Location Description

Three area hospitals and a number of outpatient clinics now officially belong to Community Health Systems Inc., a for-profit company that has promised to invest at least $68 million in the facilities over the next five years.

The $150 million sale of the former Mercy Hospital in Scranton, now called Regional Hospital of Scranton, as well as Tyler Memorial Hospital in Tunkhannock and Special Care Hospital in Nanticoke, was finalized Monday. Tennessee-based CHS, which owns Wilkes-Barre General, Pottstown Memorial Medical Center and 128 other hospitals throughout the country, was selected as a buyer for the facilities owned by Mercy Health Partners in February.

The new Mercy System includes the 198-bed Regional Hospital of Scranton (PA) and 48-bed Tyler Memorial Hospital in Tunkhannock, PA, bringing CHS' total number of acute hospitals in Pennsylvania to 13. CHS also acquired Mercy Health Partners' 67-bed Special Care Hospital in Nanticoke, PA, and other outpatient and ancillary services.

Despite the name changes and the shift from nonprofit to for-profit facilities, hospital and CHS officials said there will be little change in the day-to-day operations. CHS has agreed to keep on all hospital employees in good standing for at least one year and maintain relationships with all physicians serving on the hospitals' medical staffs.
