Prima CARE, in Fall River, Massachusetts, is recruiting a fellowship-trained gastroenterologist to join our established Gastro Division of Board-certified gastroenterologists and their team of Nurse Practitioners.
The outpatient practice serves a large patient base and offers expertise in intestinal, hepatic, pancreatic, and biliary disease. Candidates must be comfortable with a variety of gastrointestinal disease and routine endoscopic procedures, but any specific expertise, technical skills (e.g., ERCP), or interests would be particularly valuable.
The successful candidate would also see hospital consults at Saint Anne’s Hospital (a Steward facility). This hospital offers imaging and interventional services, and surgical procedures are performed either locally or referred to superb tertiary centers in Boston. The inpatient practice is consultative for patients admitted to the Hospitalist Service. Our busy endoscopy suite is located in our own office complex, with a full complement of nursing, anesthesia, and pathology staff. Procedures on higher-risk or complex patients are performed in the local hospital’s outpatient suite.
