Research Medical Center, Kansas City, MO
Founded more than 120 years ago by German physicians, Research Medical Center has become one of the crown jewels in the HCA Midwest Health System. Located in the heart of Kansas City, Research Medical Center is among the only tertiary care centers serving Kansas City proper. Over the past century, this 507-bed institution has built a tradition of serving residents in Kansas City and a 150-mile surrounding region with exceptional patient care and leading technology. Research Medical Center has completed more than $100 million in capital improvements, including new lobby and admitting areas, renovated and expanded Cancer Center and Women’s Care Unit, construction of all private patient rooms and doubling the Emergency Department.
Recognizing the need for highly specialized programs to treat the critically ill, Research Medical Center has selected four specific clinical areas and designated them as a "Center of Excellence." These four centers represent a commitment by the Medical Center to provide the very best facilities, the most technologically advanced equipment and some of the top physicians and staff specialists in the region.
If you are not familiar with Kansas City, let me tell you it is one of the best kept secrets in the US! Recently it was named one of the 10 best downtown areas by Forbes magazine. It is consistently listed as one of the top 10 places to live in the US due to the affordability of housing, great job market, cultural interests, sports activities and facilities, and geographic location. Even though KC is considered the Midwest, it is technically almost in the exact center of the US!
Although there had already been a wide variety of artists living, working, and coalescing around downtown Kansas City, the brand new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts just opened in September and quickly became central, and a visual monument to just how seriously Kansas City takes the arts. Combine that love of culture with a walkable and livable downtown, a wide variety of neighborhoods such as The Plaza, which is known for its upscale shopping and entertainment. Plus, everywhere you look in Kansas City, there’s another fountain dancing in front of you. They were one of the first cities in the US to add a pedestrian mall back in the fifties says Jason Clampet, senior online editor for Frommers.com. Plus you’ve got great barbecue there, and you can spend all day going from barbecue to barbecue joint . . . it’s that delicious. - Forbes Magazine

Job SummaryResearch Medical Center is assisting with the search for 2 BC/BE Gastroenterologist to join an existing practice with 5 other physicians and 1 Nurse Practitioner. This practice has been in the community for over 30 years, is very stable, and enjoys an excellent reputation in the community. They are a hospital based practice with 2 office locations, and provide coverage at 4 local hospitals, including 1 large urban hospital and 3 suburban hospitals. The physicians each only go to one facility a day but rotate to each through the week. They have a large volume of patients with all types of GI disorders, including gastrointestinal disorders, biliary tract disease and liver disease. Procedures include EGD, Colonoscopy, ERCP and High Resolution Esophageal Manometry with Impedence. The group utilizes capsule endoscopy (Pillcam), Bravo pH studies, Radiofrequency ablation of Barrett’s, and various stent placements. No one in the group performs EUS or Endoscopic mucosal resection, so there would be a great deal of opportunity to build a practice with EUS as a focus. Call will be 1 in 5 with the first additional physician and will grow to 1 in 6 with the second addition. All of the current group physicians feel the call schedule is extremely reasonable (best in town) and very manageable.
This is a very cohesive, family oriented group practice, with a long term staff on board supporting the physicians. They have electronic medical records so that the office is "paperless". No one has ever left the practice except for retirement, and the last physician joined the group 10 years ago. They are offering a competitive compensation package including relocation and sign on bonus, employment for first 3 years and partnership offered thereafter.
