Our hospital is located in Morris, IL, less than 75 minutes from downtown Chicago. We are seeking a 3rd BC/BE Interventional Cardiologist to join Morris Hospital’s Cardiovascular Team.
Our need is due to increased volumes in the employed, cardiovascular program and one of the Interventional Cardiologists in the secondary cardiology group would like to step down from STEMI call as he’s further along in his career. We have an extremely successful cardiovascular program with physicians and staff we’re so thankful to work with. Dr. Syed Ahmed has been here since the inception of our program as of 08/2013 and Dr. Athar Saeed came in 12/2014 and is still here along with the same office and CathLab staff who started in 2013. In 04/2018 we hired a non-invasive cardiologist, Dr. Mary Gordon who’s found the Midwest to be home for over 20 years. We also have a contracted EP physician who comes here to see patients in the office and non-complex cases in the CATH lab.
No J1, H1B, or O1 visa support available. Our hospital & clinics are not in underserved/shortage areas.
Candidate expected to perform coronary angiogram, coronary intervention, peripheral angiogram and intervention. State-of-the Art CATH Lab also includes stent, peripheral atherectomy, cardioversions and ICD procedure capability. Doing devices, is a plus, but not required.
Currently a 4 physician employed practice with noninvasive, interventional-invasive and electrophysiology physicians, plus there's an amicable secondary independent-cardiology group. Work with phenomenal and competent clinical and non-clinical staff members who’ve been part of the hospital-employed cardiovascular program since 2013.
State-of-the-art offices with accredited nuclear, echo and vascular labs providing on-site imaging. We also have an accredited Cardiac Rehab program. Offices are close to great housing and school choices. It is a perfect opportunity to raise a family and enjoy the best of suburban and semi-suburban suburbs
