OB/GYN Physician

OB/GYN Physician


We are a small hospital in Upstate NY, 55 miles from Albany and 45 minutes from Saratoga.  We have a low volume labor and delivery (approximately 500 per year).  The low volume can be attributed to demographics.  This year we saw a 20% upswing by end of June.  We have a strong commitment to deliver this service and a beautiful birthing center.

We currently run Women’s Health out of three (3) of our twelve (12) Primary/Specialty Care Centers.  One is in Gloversville and is attached to the hospital, another in Perth, NY which is 9.2 miles away and the last in Fonda, NY.

We have a four (4) MD group with two (2) midwives and three (3) WH NP.  Our office practices are quite strong.

This is a full time position that assumes a four (4) day week and a one (1) in four (4) call.  We have Nurse Midwives who take first call when they are assigned for call which means that you would be called by doctors, ER or the Birthing Unit in those circumstances, but not patients (and, yes, in full disclosure, the math dictates that there are times when a midwife will not be on call with you, but it is fairly rotated and at those times, GYN patient calls go to our other NP call rotations).  We would assume that you would do deliveries and surgeries.

Any expression of interest may be made directly to mgoodman@nlh.org or by calling (518) 775-4102.
