General Thoracic Surgery Opportunity:

Mercy Health Physicians-Youngstown is seeking a motivated and capable board eligible or board certified Thoracic Surgeon to join a world class division of Cardiothoracic Surgery. Candidates are expected to have completed surgical residency and fellowship training in Thoracic/Cardiothoracic Surgery and be Board Eligible or Certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. The Mercy Health Physicians Youngstown Heart & Vascular Institute has a total of 15 employed cardiologists with 4 interventional cardiologists and 3 EP specialists. Additionally, 3 BC Vascular Surgeons are part of the service line. There are also several community-based heart and vascular specialists that also support the surgical program. The Mercy Cardiothoracic physician group consists of 2 surgeons who conduct more than 275 cardiac cases and 125 thoracic cases (including

VATS lobectomy) annually with tremendous room to grow, especially on the thoracic side. This year the cardiac volume will be over 300 cases not counting TAVR. The hospital is a Level 1 trauma center, is a certified stroke center, also chest pain certified with PCI, and the only sepsis center of excellence in Ohio. A hybrid room will be completed by the end of 2016 and a Da Vinci Si robot is available for use. Both cardiothoracic operating rooms were renovated in 2016 to the newest

Stryker integration and the latest monitor and camera technology for VATS cases.

There is an active, busy valve clinic and a multidisciplinary solitary pulmonary nodule clinic being

Developed with plans to open in the beginning of 2017. March 1 was our first TAVR and 35 have been completed thus far. We are the only TAVR program within an hour drive radius.

Over 20 area pulmonologists support the thoracic program- and a dedicated thoracic surgeon would certainly increase that support. There are currently no surgeons in the area performing any esophageal resections and the development of an esophageal program would also be a focus for the candidate. This is an amazing opportunity to develop your own general thoracic program with unwavering support from Administration and your partners. Tremendous support is also present from medical oncology and radiation oncology, with plans to bring SBRT to the area in the next 12- 24 months. Office conveniently located adjacent to the hospital. Support from 3 Advanced Practice Clinicians.

Only cover one hospital. No buy in, no overhead, no seniority issues. Call would be 1:3 with NO cardiac call. General surgery residents with 24 hour in house presence also support the program.

Highly completive salary, relocation and benefit package, 401B, retirement, education loan repayment and other benefits. New graduates and current trainees will be strongly considered and training stipend is available to those still in training. Our current two surgeons are committed to mentoring any new graduate that is hired.
