Caribou, Maine: We invite a friendly, skilled Pediatrician to join 60 providers on the medical staff of an award-winning, community-owned 65-bed medical center where over 500 employees serve 35,000 residents around northeastern Maine. You will be impressed by this “Top Rural Hospital” – a multiple blue-ribbon hospital and Women’s Choice Award winner. Leapfrog has given this hospital an “A” Safety Score every year! They are rated in the top 2% of all US hospitals for health information and patient safety technology and are the “Employer and Provider of Choice” in healthcare in the area.

Candidates requiring NHSC, H1b or J1 visa sponsorship are encouraged to apply. Expert legal counsel will be provided to manage the immigration process, with all costs covered.

You will join two experienced pediatricians and an excellent PA providing compassionate, high-quality care to infants, children and teens. Enjoy a mostly outpatient practice with 1:3 coverage of occasional low acuity inpatients (complex patients are referred to the large tertiary medical center in Bangor). Each pediatrician will also attend c-sections a couple of times per month on average (annual total of about 75/year for the group, out of about 220 yearly births). You will enjoy seeing patients in a welcoming setting – the beautifully appointed Women’s and Children’s Health Center within the medical center (a quick walk from the labor/delivery unit), with an excellent clinical and administrative support team.

The employer is a hospital-affiliated FQHC (federally qualified health center) certified as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) that uses a coordinated team-based approach that enables patients to take an active role in their health status and decision making. They emphasize access, health information technology, and coordinated care focused on patients. This team works to deliver seamless health and wellness services to every patient they serve! You can look forward to a convenient schedule with call supported by a telephone triage system that screens after-hours calls to improve YOUR quality of life.

You will earn a highly competitive salary plus excellent benefits including paid relocation to scenic Maine, paid liability insurance, health and dental insurance, life and disability insurance, paid time off for sick leave and vacations, more paid leave plus a budget for your CME, participation in retirement plans, paid professional expenses, and more. Ongoing assistance with student loans is also available. This health center is approved for tax-free NHSC loan repayment.

Northern Maine is a wonderful place to live and work. Caribou is a dynamic, growing community that is economically, culturally and socially inviting. They have high quality public schools – the new multi-million dollar Middle/Senior High School opened in 2020 – with a student-to-teacher ratio of just 14:1! Caribou boasts an extremely low crime rate, and recreation galore: A multi-million-dollar Recreation and Wellness Center offers indoor running, basketball, swimming and other programs for all ages, and other local facilities include a premier cross-country skiing venue too.

Rural northern Maine enjoys a picturesque four-season environment with abundant wildlife including moose, deer and bald eagles – reasons many seasonal visitors flock to the area to enjoy a quiet summer retreat, the spectacular colors of autumn, or a winter adventure. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets on area lakes, camping and hiking in peaceful forests, hunting and fishing, canoeing and kayaking on lakes and rivers, hiking and biking on paths for all skill levels, or snowmobiling or dog sledding across groomed trails.

A commercial airport in neighboring Presque Isle (20 minutes away) offers direct flights to Newark daily. Many residents of northern Maine enjoy visiting Canada – Quebec City is a scenic five hour drive – or Bangor, Maine (Maine’s third largest city), a three hour drive south.
