Pediatrician Opportunity, Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics (ACHP) North Canton, Ohio
Akron Children's Hospital Pediatrics brings pediatric primary care for babies, children and teens to many northeast Ohio communities through our 27 pediatric offices. Akron Children’s Hospital Pediatrics (ACHP) is seeking a full-time BE/BC Pediatrician to join our well established North Canton practice of 5 pediatricians and 1 pediatric nurse practitioner. This is an outpatient opportunity with “At-home”call shared between all of the physicians. Calls only reach the physician after being screened by our excellent after hour’s nurse triage phone line which handles more than 90% of the calls. Saturday morning office hours will be shared between all providers at the practice with approximately 1:4 coverage.
This is a busy existing practice, so we welcome new graduates or established providers to step into a practice that they can continue to develop and grow. Our providers enjoy the use of EPIC as a system-wide integrated electronic health system. Our offices follow standard hospital-based policies, while retaining the local culture of each practice.  Our physicians enjoy the use of EPIC as a system-wide integrated electronic health record. Our primary care offices will be PCMH certified in 2018. The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care. PCMHs build better relationships between people and their clinical care teams. Research shows that they improve quality, the patient experience and staff satisfaction, while reducing health care costs.
