Surgeons who work at community hospitals are usually quite fulfilled, both professionally and personally. With nearly one in five Americans living in rural areas, it is easy to see the need for experienced surgeons to work in those areas. NexGen Surgical makes rural practice easy for surgeons who want to enjoy a slower pace of life without being forced to move. Our surgeons earn competitive salaries, enjoy ample time off and have the satisfaction of knowing they are providing a lifeline to underserved patients.
Community Hospital Surgeons Have a Great Work-Life Balance
Working in a community hospital has its perks, namely, a significantly enhanced work-life balance when compared to the hustle and bustle of operating a busy urban practice. Surgeons who choose to move away from metropolitan areas enjoy shorter commutes, which means more free time with friends and family. Moreover, housing and food cost less in rural areas, making it possible to work less and spend less. Working with NexGen also means that you work two weeks per month and are not on call during your time off.
Financial Perks to Working in a Community Hospital
Higher starting salaries and larger patient volumes mean greater income potential for surgeons working in community hospitals. Many rural practices also offer incentives like generous signing bonuses. At NexGen, we offer competitive compensation. In fact, surgeons who transition to NexGen Surgical typically earn better compensation than they would in their current practice. Filling a void in underserved communities while enjoying the financial benefits of generous compensation and flexible scheduling makes transitioning to NexGen an easy decision.
Community Hospital Surgeons Hone Their Skill Sets
Surgeons who work in community hospitals can maintain a robust and varied skill set. This is because rural surgeons get to work on a wider variety of procedures and cases than their urban counterparts, partly because they don’t have a bevy of on-site subspecialists. As a result, surgeon skills stay sharp and current in a rural environment.
Community Hospital Surgeons Are Valued Community Members
Surgeons are needed, well-known and appreciated in smaller towns. As a rural medicine physician, you will likely have a waiting list before you start and will be a respected and integral part of the community. You will also have the privilege of caring for the same patients and their families over time and providing optimal care by better understanding each patient’s history.
What to Expect as a NexGen Surgeon
The NexGen model gives hardworking surgeons the ability to embrace a healthy work-life balance without having to relocate, take call during off-time or spend time away from their practice working on billing, payroll or staffing issues. We want our surgeons to focus on what they do best—delivering patient care—while enjoying the benefits of a flexible schedule. Your lifestyle goals will be kept top of mind as we plan surgical schedules. You will receive professional and timely administrative support from our leadership team members, who are always standing by to offer support.
