Full Description:
Anesthesia Specialists of Bethlehem (ASB) is a 63 physician, 105 CRNA private practice group looking to hire a full time, partnership track critical care anesthesiologist. This position is available to new graduates and experienced physicians. We are hiring due to expanding needs throughout our network. 
This is a unique opportunity to practice both anesthesiology and critical care medicine with a private practice group. ASB has a very stable and growing team of 17 critical care anesthesiologists who provide care at a combination of tertiary and community level ICUs. Critical care patient populations include cardiovascular, neuro, and general critical care patients. The ICU service consists of a multidisciplinary rounding team including residents, medical students, advanced practice students, advanced pratitioners, critical care pharmacists, respiratory therapy, and critical care nurses. Care is coordinated with the full spectrum of specialists. In addition to anesthesia critical care, you would work with critical care physicians from other specialties contributing to a well-rounded, collegial, multidisciplinary service line.
Our hospital network has grown quickly over the past 10 years, with 3 new campuses built in the last 3 years. ASB covers ten inpatient campuses and three ambulatory surgery centers. Our primary inpatient facility, St. Luke's University Hospital at Bethlehem Campus is a Level One Trauma Center. The St. Luke’s Anderson campus, a Level Two Trauma Center, houses the newly built Mother and Baby Pavilion opened in January 2020 and performs 3500 deliveries a year. We have a dedicated team of fellowship trained CT anesthesiologists who provide cardiac care. We take care of "bread and butter" pediatric cases and have a fellowship trained pediatric team that is in charge of more challenging cases. In addition, we perform anesthesia for orthopedics, thoracic, neurosurgery, IR, urology, GYN, ENT, vascular, and general surgery.
ASB is thoroughly committed to the Surgical Home concept. We have an acute pain service, we run the pre-op program including a surgical optimization clinic and are well entrenched in ERAS protocols for nearly all of our specialties. Our staff is well represented in leadership positions in the network. 
Compensation is $450,000 per year. Partnership is voted on at 18 months and granted at the completion of two years. Time off totals approximately 19 weeks per year, broken down as 6 weeks of vacation and 13 weeks post call time. We offer a full range of benefits including Blue Cross health insurance with three different options, including an HSA. We offer a $40,000 sign on bonus as well as $10,000 relocation payment. $3,000 is provided towards CME expenses yearly. All licensing and board fees are covered in addition to CME expenses. We also provide a $500/month for car expenses for those who travel between multiple campuses and $80/month for cellphone expenses.
