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.
The Supplemental OB/GYN Hospitalist positions are designed to support the established groups of OB Hospitalists located at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, OR and Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center in Vancouver, WA as well as additional opportunities for coverage throughout the Legacy system in Portland and the surrounding areas (Legacy Silverton Medical Center and Legacy Mt.Hood Medical Center).
At the primary site(s), the OB Hospitalists support the inpatient needs of the Legacy Medical Group (LMG) Maternal Fetal Medicine service and function as perinatal extenders. 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 provide variable coverage for Emergency Department gynecologic consults and emergencies (miscarriage, ovarian torsion, ectopic pregnancy, etc). Both locations have Level IV NICUs and serve a vital role in the surrounding communities for high-risk pregnancies. Dedicated in-house Anesthesia is present 24/7 at both sites. Local academic OB/GYN and Family Medicine residents provide coverage 24/7 at LEMC with medical student rotations at both sites. No clinic responsibilities.
