OB GYN Hospitalist Job at Legacy Health, Portland, OR

  • Legacy Health
  • Portland, OR

Job Description




At Legacy, we are committed to making life better for others. We not only provide state-of-the-art care; we also provide compassion and a tireless desire to secure the wellbeing of our patients. If this is how you view your work as an OB/GYN, we invite you to consider joining our community.


This OB/GYN Hospitalist position will be primarily located at the joint site Legacy Emanuel Medical Center (LEMC) and Randall Children’s Hospital (RCH) in Portland, Oregon. Additional opportunities for coverage at other sites within the Legacy system (either coverage or additional FTE) may be available if interested. For emergency coverage, the group of Hospitalists are credentialed at multiple sites.


The well-established OB/GYN Hospitalist program at RCH/LEMC supports the inpatient needs of the Legacy Medical Group (LMG) Maternal Fetal Medicine service. The OB Hospitalists and the MFM providers work closely together on a daily basis, and the MFM practice has 24/7 (not in-house) coverage available. The OB Hospitalist also provides backup to the LMG Midwifery Practice (all CNMs), coverage for unassigned labor/triage patients, support of our private practice OB/GYN colleagues as needed (i.e. C-section assisting), and coverage for Emergency Department and inpatient gynecologic consults and emergencies (miscarriage, ovarian torsion, ectopic pregnancy, etc) with backup available. RCH has a Level IV NICU and serves a vital role in the surrounding communities for high-risk pregnancies. Dedicated in-house Anesthesia is present 24/7. Local academic OB/GYN and Family Medicine residents provide coverage 24/7 at LEMC with medical student rotations most of the year. No outpatient clinic responsibilities.


Shifts are either 12 or 24 hours in-house, in a well-appointed call room on the beautiful Labor & Delivery unit in Randall Children’s Hospital. Some preference can be taken with respect to 12 vs 24 hour shifts, but flexibility is required. Weekend shifts are split evenly among the group of FTE’d employees, as are holidays which are on a rotating schedule. You would be joining Portland’s oldest OB/GYN Hospitalist program with very low attrition over its 15+ year history.


Requirements and Qualifications:

  • Graduate of four-year U.S. Medical School or equivalent with residency completed in OB/GYN
  • Board Certified or Board Eligible in OB-GYN.
  • Unrestricted license to practice medicine in Oregon and Washington.
  • Current BLS from the American Heart Association required.
  • Bilingual a plus!

Required procedures/skills:

  • Full OB scope of both low and high-risk pregnancies including NSVD, operative vaginal delivery, cesarean section, management of third stage labor, hemorrhage, level 1 ultrasound, repair of episiotomy and lacerations, VBAC, etc. Gynecology procedures including D&C, minor and major laparoscopy with adnexal surgery (oophorectomy, cystectomy, salpingectomy, ectopic), tubal ligation (laparoscopic and postpartum).

Follows guidelines set forth in Legacy’s Values in Action.


Equal Opportunity Employer/Vets/Disabled. Sorry, no J1 or H-1B visa opportunities.
