Asheville, North Carolina (PressExposure) July 06, 2011 -- Finding a hospitalist group in today's marketplace can be like navigating through a minefield. Five years ago there were approximately 12,500 hospitalist physicians nationwide. By 2010, the number is expected to exceed 30,000 - making hospital medicine the fastest-growing medical specialty in the U.S.
PrimeDoc is one of the most established and experienced companies in the country. Our physician leadership has more than 30 years of clinical, hands-on, and executive-level hospital leadership experience. We are seeking career-minded, board-certified/eligible primary care physicians with an emphasis on inpatient care to join established or developing hospitalist programs.
PrimeDoc hospitalists enjoy a company with the stability of more than a decade of proven success.
As a longstanding hospitalist group founded in Asheville NC, soon after the specialty was first recognized, PrimeDoc has a 12-year track record of success. While we believe in controlled growth, our hospitalist group has grown significantly since our start in 1997, to include practices in attractive locations in North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland.
Hospital employee? Not when you work at PrimeDoc!
Our private-practice, 100% physician-owned model is one reason why more physicians choose PrimeDoc over another hospitalist group. Our professional employees work in a private-practice model with the freedom and flexibility to make decisions best suited for the individual practice. They are well supported with dedicated management, on-site administrative and clinical support, and centralized back-office business functions.
Technically, physicians are PrimeDoc employees; however, our financial policies are designed to allow them many of the freedoms of independent contractors. The company's programs are structured within our corporate model to provide PrimeDoc professional employees with the greatest tax savings. Programs include:
Flexible group benefit plans for health insurance
Business expense reimbursements
401(k) retirement plan
Group rates for malpractice insurance
PrimeDoc offers physicians excellent earnings potential.
According to a salary survey conducted by the Society of Hospital Medicine (2007-08), hospitalists in PrimeDoc's region are compensated higher than in any other region in the U.S. PrimeDoc hospitalists enjoy a compensation formula that is a combination of a fixed base and a very aggressive production incentive, with low overhead.
