Heartland of America - Cardiac Focused Intensivist
We are looking for an additional BC/BE pediatric intensivist for our PICU at MercyOne Children's Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa. Interested candidates should have training or significant experience in cardiac ICU management as a high percentage of our practice involves care of cardiac patients.
Our cardiac program treats children with complex congenital heart disease. We are a two-star, medium-sized cardiothoracic program reporting to the national STS Congenital Heart Surgery database. Approximately 120 cardiac surgeries are performed annually.
Our children's hospital is a Level-II pediatric trauma center with a 24-hour pediatric emergency room, pediatric transport team, 44-bed Level-IV NICU, 22-bed pediatric ward and pediatric sedation services.
There is an array of pediatric subspecialties and surgical services.
MercyOne Children's Hospital has the only pediatric cardiothoracic, craniofacial, and longest standing pediatric neurosurgical program in central Iowa.
The PICU has 9-beds with an average daily census of 6 and 500 admissions annually.
The unit was completely renovated in 2012 to include an OR-capable procedure room and a 10-bed FLEX unit that is fully ICU-capable for overflow and future growth.
We are an active ELSO program providing on average 6-10 VA/VV ECMO runs annually with plans to expand our program.
As the capital of Iowa, Des Moines is a growing metropolitan area that has a small-town feel and ranks as one of the wealthiest cities in the United States. In fact, it is listed in the “Top 100 Best Places to Live” on Livability.com and US News and World Report ranked Des Moines 9th in their 2017 survey of “Best Places to live in the US.” There is no shortage of activities for the outdoor enthusiast -- 76 parks, multiple Senior PGA/LPGA championship golf courses/country clubs and over 500 miles of connected recreational trails, to name a few. For the cultural enthusiast, you will find the food, fine art, and theater scenes are wonderful too. There is truly something for everyone. The cost of living in Des Moines is lower than the national average and the schools are excellent. With all that it has to offer, it's no wonder Des Moines is a wonderful place to live and raise a family!
