An excellent opportunity for a BE/BC pediatrician to join a well-established, busy, and growing private pediatric practice consisting of seven full- and part-time physicians and three pediatric Nurse Practitioners. Highland Pediatrics is located in historic Fall River, Massachusetts. We pride ourselves on practicing high quality, personal pediatric medicine.
We collaborate closely in a congenial environment. We see a wide range of pathology, and we utilize a pediatric specific EMR. We serve a broad spectrum of patients across all pediatric and adolescent ages as well as socioeconomic backgrounds from throughout southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Rhode Island. We have an active breastfeeding support program as well as a wellness program for overweight patients. We also have lab, X-ray, and pharmacy services in addition to ophthalmology, ENT, and surgery specialties located in our building. Other pediatric specialties are available nearby.
We see our own newborns at our community hospital that has 24-hour level II nursery coverage for C-sections and complicated neonatal cases. The obstetricians perform all circumcisions. We also manage the occasional pediatric inpatient. When necessary, we refer complex cases to Boston Children’s Hospital, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Tufts Floating Hospital for Children, and Mass General. We cover only our own patients when on-call which is shared among our providers, averaging about five per month. We use a Nursing call service for overnight calls.
