Known in Dallas as “The City Just for Kids,” Medical City Children’s Hospital has an unwavering focus on patient care and offers world-renowned excellence in comprehensive pediatric services. Since 1996, our specialists haven’t let anything distract them from serving children. As a result, we’ve helped thousands of children from more than 75 countries. We are a comprehensive children’s hospital with specialists in virtually every pediatric subspecialty. Medical City is the only facility in north Texas where fetal diagnosis, maternal, neonatal and pediatric transport, high risk delivery stabilization in the NICU, corrective surgery, state of the art postoperative monitoring and care and long term follow-up of patients with complex congenital heart disease can all be delivered under one roof.
The Congenital Heart Surgery Unit (CHSU) accommodates around 400 children annually who undergo heart operations performed by Dr. Eric Mendeloff. 30% of our cases are neonates and 58% are under the age of 2 years. Cases range in complexity from palliation of hypoplastic left heart syndrome to closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects. Highly specialized care in the CHSU is provided by subspeciality-trained physicians and an excellent group of long term nurses and respiratory therapists. This focus on pediatric cardiac critical care has resulted in superlative patient outcomes that exceed national norms. The heart program’s success has attracted referrals from across the country. With the addition of a second Congenital Heart Surgeon to our already robust program, we anticipate growth that will require a sixth member for our CICU team in addition to our need for a Medical Director of the Unit. Preferred candidate for the director level position will possess leadership attributes with evidenced experience, along with a strong clinical skill set.
All candidates are preferred to be BC/BE in Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Critical Care or boarded in one of these with additional training in Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care. Those with certification in one discipline and solid experience in the alternate subspecialty should also apply. Positions are employed and offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits packet.
Our hospital has immense current capabilities and is positioned to grow. If you are interested in being a part of an excellent team please contact us today for more information.
