Locum position for experienced CRNA at a growing facility with a wonderful Anesthesia team.
Case-mix is primarily adults, peds, and most surgical services. Various shifts usually allow a day off during the week. OT available. Opportunities Available as early as September!
Premier Anesthesia holds an exclusive contract for South Texas Health System facilities located in McAllen and Edinburg, Texas. South Texas Health System (STHS) is a regional multi-hospital system that has earned a reputation for excellence in providing quality healthcare to residents of the Rio Grande Valley. Premier's STHS team provides full anesthesia coverage for McAllen Medical Center, McAllen Heart Hospital, Edinburg Regional Medical Center, and Edinburg Children's Hospital.
We are seeking CRNAs who function well in a team but have the clinical skills and experience to be independent. The ideal candidate possesses clinical experience with high acuity, trauma, and neuro. Regional, pediatric, and OB experience a plus but not required. Supervised team model at most times but must have the ability to function independently occasionally. All facilities use Cerner as the EMR including anesthesia documentation.
The four southern-most counties in Texas form the Rio Grande Valley which in the last 50 years has transformed from an agriculture-based economy to a major international trade center. McAllen is at the heart of this transition and has experienced explosive growth with a population increase from 2001-2010 of 66.8 % to estimated three-quarters of a million people. This diverse population can be defined simply as Hispanic and young with 60% under age 35 and 90% Hispanic. The climate boasts an average temperature of 74 and only 26 inches of rain annually. There is plenty to keep you busy from dining at hundreds of restaurants and shopping for south of the border treasures to a variety of live music, theatre, and dance performances while experiencing the terrific nightlife as you stroll down 17th street. Located adjacent to McAllen a short 15-minute drive away is the city of Edinburg. Edinburg is the county seat of Hidalgo County with a population of roughly 80,000. It prides itself as the educational and technological capital of the border region.
Premier Anesthesia covers the malpractice, application fees and assists with travel if needed.
