Job Description

You are invited to explore one of the best kept secrets in the State of Montana, Eastern Roosevelt County, and specifically, Culbertson. Roosevelt Medical Center is surrounded by thousands of acres of rolling hills and golden grain fields; close to the majesty of the Missouri River; and nestled under the vastness of Montana’s spectacular blue sky. If you are ready for a change of pace in your practice, as well as a change of scenery, we would love to visit with you about the Family Practice opportunity with us.

 We have an excellent school system, several churches, and businesses to meet basic necessities, and youth and adult organizations.  We are located one mile north of the Missouri River which offers excellent walleye fishing year round and summer boating and jet skiing fun.  This is also an outstanding location for deer and bird hunting.  Williston, ND, and Sidney, MT, are a short drive for movies, bowling, and Wal-mart.  Minot, ND, or Billings, MT, are weekend outings for mall shopping and larger entertainment.  Downhill skiing is not out the back door, but, again, any of Montana’s ski resorts are a great get away for a long weekend. 

Roosevelt Medical Center is a small facility in need of a doctor with interest in caring for patients in our rural health clinic, 25-bed critical access hospital with long term care and 24-hour ER.  We do not provide surgical or obstetrical services.   This is a great opportunity for the doctor who likes autonomy and the chance to maximize his/her skills and knowledge in primary care.  This job is also for the doctor who wants to develop long term relationships with patients and provide care for an individual across the continuum from infancy through old age.  For these services, we will pay a competitive salary with benefits. 

The physician will work with and supervise Physician’s Assistant and/or Nurse Practitioners.  Providers see between 10 and 20 patients per day in the Rural Health Clinic.  Average daily CAH inpatient census is 1.  Long term care census is 23-24.  The emergency room visits average 40-50 per month so while on call, providers are not onsite, but must be available to respond within 30 minutes.  Physician shares call with the PAs/NPs 1-2 week nights, holidays, and 1:3 weekends.  The physician serves as Medical Director, but with an active medical staff of 5, the administrative duties are not burdensome.  Physician interacts with facility quality activities.

Full service lab with blood banking and some bacteriology. Radiology services include basic x-ray and Toshiba CT with off-site radiologist over-read.  State-designated trauma receiving facility.

This position could be right for a physician wanting to maintain a full-time practice, but at a slower and much more personal pace. This could also be ideal for a physician looking for part-time work. Either way, there is opportunity to enjoy your hobbies and build strong friendships.

 We are looking for a physician wanting to be part of a team of health care professionals who are committed to maintaining access to quality primary healthcare in Montana’s rural communities. Please consider joining us by relocating to Culbertson, Montana, and Roosevelt Medical Center.
