Pediatrician hospitalist needed for GUAM,
Mariana Islands (US Commonwealth)
We have a 22 bed Peds
ward; a 3 bed PICU, a 4 bed NICU, a 10 bed Intermediate Care Nursery, and a 16 bed Nursery plus rooming in on the OB ward.
The Pediatric hospitalist averages 4-5 newborns and approx. one or two Peds pts./24hr call with the usual significant variation,
especially of the newborn number often and of the Peds number when the seasonal illnesses peak. The Pediatric hospitalist
position is all inpatient acute care and our current hospitalist covers two 24hr shifts/week. He is not required to remain
in house but he is required to attend to those admitted pts. until discharge. The synergy of 3 or 3.5 Pediatric hospitalists
should make the follow up care of admitted patients easier and allow for some "off" days that our current workaholic
Pediatric hospitalist rarely enjoys.The Pediatric hospitalist should be able and willing to care for both NICU and PICU patients.
The pay is currently 156K plus benefits.

New Programs and Services
GMHA now offers cardiac rehabilitation for patients with pre-operative and post-operative care in and
in-patient and out-patient setting. This rehabilitation aims to provide both preventative and wellness programs and
encompasses all phases of acute cardiac rehabilitation. Through tele-medicine and tele-radiology, access and consultation
with specialists off-island are not possible. Our Radiology Department is almost complete in its transformation to a
film-less department. Thus, all images, including CT, MRI, ultrasound, angiography, and echocardiography may be transmitted
immediately to any major medical institution in Hawaii or on the Mainland. GMHA entered into a new era in the area of
cardiology this past year. New services include thallium stress imaging, and transesophageal echocardiography.
A state-of-the-art Cardiac Angiography suite introduced diagnostic cardiac angiograms to the services available. Our
Orthopedic Program expanded to include elective hip, knee joint, and shoulder replacements.

the investment and upgrading of the equipment and technology at GMHA, there are numerous opportunities to attract and provide
additional specialty services. Such areas include gastroenterology, urology, neurology, advance cardiology, orthopedic
and gerontology services.
