Brookdale Medical Center in Brooklyn NY has need to multiple EM Dr's. Some Details on the exciting opportunity below:

Level one trauma center
100k plus patients per year
12 and 10 hour shifts available
67 hours physician coverage per day (including Peds shift)
Excellent backup
Will consider only BC/BE EM

The Radutzky Emergency Department is a Level I Trauma Center that provides quality care 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. It is staffed by Board Certified Attending physicians and a team of
specially trained, skilled nurses and ancillary staff. With its open-space concept, up-to-the minute
technology and fast response time, this ER is one of the busiest in the city with almost 100,000
visits a year.

Key features of our Emergency Department include:

Streamline traffic flow and ensures that patients are more quickly and precisely directed for the appropriate level of care, whether that is an operating room or a hospital bed.
Shifts increasingly away from the primary care so common in inner-city emergency rooms and toward the critical care that represents true emergencies.
Functions as an open space, better enabling physicians and nurses to more closely monitor patients.
Utilizes the most modern equipment, such as a new CT scan and ancillary services including filmless radiology.
Uniquely allow physicians outside the Brookdale ED to link through the internet on a personal computer for radiology, EKG or other patient readings.

Brookdale, now one of the largest nonprofit voluntary teaching hospitals in Brooklyn, began as one small building rising amid the vacant fields and scattered farms where the towns of Brownsville, East New York and Canarsie come together.

Today, the hospital covers a 10-acre campus plus six Brookdale Family Care Centers, with buildings devoted to inpatient, ambulatory, long-term care, senior living and emergency medicine, and has the latest technology for service to our community. The original building has endured and so too has the spirit and philosophy of the men and women who struggled to build, equip and staff what they termed a haven of healing for all who needed it.

While it was "small change"--literally nickels, dimes and the occasional dollar--that the founders collected to build their hospital, there was nothing small about their vision. Members of the Jewish community wanted a hospital that served people of all races and creeds in a humanitarian manner.
