The Division of Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Memorial Healthcare System is looking for a physician to join one of the busiest wound healing centers in the country. Candidates should be BE/BC in undersea and hyperbaric medicine and also possess (or be in the process of obtaining) additional wound care certification, preferably from The American College of Clinical Wound Specialists. In addition to providing HBO treatments, the physician will provide care to outpatient wound care patients and help cover inpatient consults. On-call coverage is required, though actual call-ins are infrequent, and covers Memorial’s six hospitals including Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. The selected physician will join an experienced medical director, Dr. Blane Shatkin, who has been leading the program since its inception in 1997.
The Memorial Hospital Pembroke Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy sees an average volume of 850-1,000 wound care visits per month and houses three monoplace chambers. The center is one of the only facilities in south Broward County to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients with hard-to-heal wounds and consistently experiences healing rates above the national average.
This is a full-time employed position with the multispecialty Memorial Physician Group. The position offers competitive benefits and a compensation package that is commensurate with training and experience. Professional malpractice and medical liability are covered under sovereign immunity.
