HospitalRecruiting.com has recently added Hospitalists Now Inc. as a client and is advertising their physician jobs in nine states and 8 medical specialties. Hospitalists Now is a company that was founded by a group of physicians in 2002 with the goal of providing better inpatient medical care, patient education, and hospital efficiencies, while also improving the costs and risks associated with prolonged hospitalization.
To assist with introducing this new client to our users, we recently interviewed Mark Dotson, Vice President of Business Development and Recruiting for Hospitalists Now, and we asked him about what makes his company a great business to work for.
Q: What do you enjoy about working for Hospitalists Now?
[Mark Dotson] As a smaller, privately owned company, we are flexible and can make decisions quickly.
Q: In the past, what do you think have been the factors that have allowed Hospitalists Now to retain physicians?
[Mark Dotson] A good work atmosphere. Hospitalists Now manages the business side of the house so our doctors can be doctors. We also strive to ensure our workloads remain balanced and if/when census grows at a consistent rate, we look to add additional staff members.
Q: What do physicians enjoy about working for Hospitalists Now?
[Mark Dotson] We let doctors be doctors. Several of our practicing physicians who have joined us like the fact that we take care of billing, collections, contracting, administrative issues, etc.
Q: What advice do you have for physicians who would like to enter hospitalist medicine?
[Mark Dotson] Make sure you want to be a “multi-specialist” and see sick patients. When patients are on our floors, they are there for a reason and typically have several issues concurrently.
Q: How do physicians know if they might be a good fit for hospitalist medicine?
[Mark Dotson] A best fit for a Hospitalist is someone who cares about seeing sick patients and who is passionate about their ability to get them well. A good Hospitalist can treat acute patients and knows how to “quarterback” care with other specialists in the community when needed.
Q: What interview advice would you share with a physician who is interested in a position with Hospitalists Now?
[Mark Dotson] Make sure Hospital Medicine is something you want to do long-term. It is not just about money, work schedule, and lifestyle.
