Baptist Health Fort Smith (BHFS) is recruiting a Neurosurgeon to join an existing surgeon. The recruitment need is to grow the neuroscience program line.
This is an employed opportunity with Baptist Health Physician Services (BHPS) which is the employed physician group for BHFS. The call is 1:3 which is shared among the existing employed surgeon as well as another surgeon in town. There is pent up demand in the market for neurosurgical services. It is anticipated that there is much growth opportunity and the expectation is that sufficient time will be spent in clinic to address the patient demand.
BHFS is a 492-bed, full service hospital. Services that support the neurosurgery program line include Hospitalists, Neurologists, and an Interventional Radiology service that has proven extremely beneficial to the existing surgeon. The neurology program line is expanding as well. Recruitment efforts are underway to add to the existing group of three Neurologists. That group includes one physician who has a largely inpatient practice and two physicians who see clinic patients only.
Baptist Health Fort Smith is 492- bed hospital complete with an emergency department, intensive care unit, outpatient imaging and surgery center. It offers a wide range of specialties including cardiology, neuro-interventional radiology, orthopedics, pediatrics and geriatrics. The facility is accredited by the Joint Commission and continues to earn recognition for exceptional stroke and heart care by national agencies.
The health system also includes a 103-bed hospital in nearby Van Buren, Ark., and more than 40 clinic locations. Baptist Health Fort Smith employs nearly 100 providers and works closely with independent and contracted physicians in the community to provide quality care to its patients.
Baptist Health Fort Smith, formerly known as Sparks Regional Medical Center, was built in 1887 making it the state’s first hospital.
