Pacific Redwood Medical Group, provides hospitalist and emergency, and Hospital at Home Care for AHUV (Adventist Health Ukiah Valley Hospital) in Ukiah, CA. PRMG is recruiting for internal medicine or family medicine board-certified/board-eligible physicians for part-time or full-time positions for our hospitalist service.
PRMG has been in the Ukiah community for +30 years. Initially an ER physician group, we started the AHUV hospitalist service about 12 years ago and have continued to be quite successful. The hospitalist service provides 95% of inpatient medical/surgery services, including critical care, collaborating with specialists and surgeons. We schedule 11-hour shifts in 3-7-day strings, feeling that the 7 on 7 off model is not sustainable for a healthy lifestyle. We are seeking day-time hospitalist(s). We currently staff an open ICU; though procedure experience is not necessary, comfort with management of critical care patients is necessary. AHUV does have many supporting subspecialties including: cardiology, nephrology, GI, general surgery, urology, pulmonary/critical care and orthopedics all of whom they closely collaborate.

Ukiah is quite eclectic! Local government, medical & legal services, schools and agriculture providing most of the employment.
