OSF HealthCare System is an integrated health system headquartered in Peoria, Ill., with acute care hospitals in 11 locations throughout the state. Those locations have a total of more than 1,500 beds, and the largest facility, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, has more than 600 beds. OSF HealthCare also has a physician organization that employs nearly 700 physicians. The system is seeking additional hospitalists because the hospitalist program is experiencing growth.
Services: Services vary by site, but OSF HealthCare offers a full range of subspecialty support and ancillary services. Two locations—Peoria and Rockford—have an academic affiliation, giving hospitalists an opportunity to get involved in teaching.
Schedule and coverage: Hospitalists work seven-on/seven-off shifts, 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Blocks run from Tuesday through Monday so hospitalists don’t have to handle weekend discharges on the first day of their block. Hospitalists work one week of nights per quarter.
Compensation: Hospitalists receive a competitive base salary and bonus structure. Physician employees of OSF HealthCare also receive a full benefits package that features medical, dental, vision coverage, a dollar-for-dollar matching 401k and separate 457b plan. Physicians also have access to a financial services plan that provides discounted interest rates for medical student debt.
Local highlights: OSF HealthCare locations are in mid-major communities near large metropolitan areas with family-oriented communities and excellent schools.
