Fort Sanders Perinatal Center is looking to add a Perinatologist to their very busy consultative practice. The tentative start date would be summer of 2022. We are open to alternative dates for the right candidate. Located in Knoxville, TN there is also the added benefit of having NO state income tax. We currently have 3 Perinatologists. The ideal candidate will be strong in ultrasound procedures, be a great team player and feel comfortable with the full gamut of obstetric and maternal-fetal services. We provide full prenatal care and do have the capacity to participate in deliveries. We provide back-up coverage to our generalists whom do the bulk of the deliveries. There are no in-house call responsibilities. We operate and deliver out of 1 hospital and have no other call responsibilities at other hospitals.
We employ 5 Nurse Practitioners, 3 Genetic Counselors, 3 RDA Diabetic Educators, and 13 Sonographers. The size of our practice and its popularity allows us to see approximately 100 patients per day through our main office. We currently operate 3 satellite offices at other Covenant outpatient sites providing ultrasound and consult for the community OB/GYN's.
We are employed by Covenant Health and have been since the groups’ inception. Covenant health is the largest provider of healthcare in East Tennessee. They employee more than 10,000 staff and over 1,100 physicians, which makes collaborative care very easy. We are partnered with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital which is across the street from Fort Sanders. ETCH recently opened a brand new NICU with 44 private rooms. It is a level III NICU. Our collaborative relationship allows us to take the best care of all of the moms/babies in the region.
Knoxville, TN is an incredible southern gem. It is a beautiful, mid-sized southern city with a big town vibe. There is also NO state income tax. We have recently been ranked a top 10 college town. The University of Tennessee’s main undergraduate campus is located near-by to the hospital with world class, family-friendly sports and activities. We have a local minor league baseball team that draws quite a crowd on game days. We are also located 15 mins from the international airport. There are many beautiful lakes in the area, which most avail themselves of in the summer months. The most visited national park, Smokey Mountain National Forest is 45 minutes away and has a myriad of tourist attractions and other family-friendly activities, including Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood’s amusement park and their waterpark. We also have a restaurant scene that truly rivals that of bigger cities and recently have had an explosion of craft beer with more than 12 micro-breweries and distilleries open in the area. We are in close proximity to Asheville, NC, Nashville, TN and Chattanooga, TN each approx. 2 hours away and 3 hours away from Atlanta. The cost of living in Knoxville is also very good. Home prices are lower than most other parts of the country. This is a great city to raise a family in.
