Orthopedic Hand Surgeon Opportunity – One of the largest non-profit health systems in the U.S. is seeking to grow and develop its orthopedic service lines in Southern Michigan. Our program supports bringing on at least two additional providers based on a retiring physician, market analysis of growing population, and current volumes that exist in the practice. Ideal candidates are those who strive for quality, and lead with compassion when helping each and every one of their patients.

Your Practice: 
  • Hospital-employed Orthopedic group–well-established with 325+ referring physicians.
  • Busy clinic averaging 150+ patients per day–400 hand cases last year.
  • Solid support system–each provider works closely with 1 PA and/or 2 MAs.

  • Top tier Level II trauma center–1:4 Secondary Hand call – Residents take primary call.
  • 90th percentile earning potential, RVU model, quality bonus, sign-on, student loan repayment, and excellent benefits package.
  • Teaching and research opportunities available with Orthopedic residents.
The Community:
  • Vibrant suburban city with booming downtown living.
  • Low cost of living–low tax rates–safe and family friendly.
  • Opportunity for free college of choice in Michigan for resident students.
  • Superb education—public, private, and top rated higher education.
  • Easy access to water, Great Lake beaches, cross-country skiing, ski resorts, biking and hiking trails, golf courses, tennis, hunting, sports, and more.
Located between Detroit and Chicago as an important destination for business, education, and cultural events. The maximum commute time anywhere in the city is 20 minutes—without the bumper-to-bumper traffic of large metro areas. Less than an hour drive from Lake Michigan beaches at South Haven and slightly farther from beaches in St. Joseph and Saugatuck. The best skiing in the Midwest is 3 to 4 hours north and excellent local skiing is only 40 minutes away. Here you’re never far from lakes, outdoor recreation areas, or world-class attractions—but you can stay busy close to home as well.
