The following is a description of the physician recruitment needs currently underway at Guadalupe Regional Medical Center in Seguin, Texas.  Seguin is a town of 25,000, with a quickly growing catchment area of over 100,000.   Seguin is located off of Interstate 10, about 30 minutes away from San Antonio and 45 minutes away from Austin.   The area is growing for several reasons, including the nation's largest oil shale to our immediate south, the soon-to-be open State Highway 130 which will directly connect Austin to Seguin, several significant industries including Caterpillar engine manufacturing, and a popular location.   The Guadalupe, Comal and San Marcos rivers provide great outdoor recreation.  Seguin is minutes away from New Braunfels and San Marcos.

The Seguin medical community is unique in many ways.  GRMC (www.grmedcenter.com) is the only city-county hospital in Texas.  It is a not for profit, community hospital with 125 beds.   We recently completed a $100 million expansion project, making this facility one of the most elegant in the San Antonio region.   As per Healthgrades ratings, GRMC is in the top 100 hospitals in the USA for quality orthopedic care based on volume and outcomes. 

There are approximately 60 active medical staff members at GRMC who live locally and practice exclusively at GRMC.  The community has traditionally been served by private practice physicians, though the nationwide trend for employment and shared overhead practices has begun to evolve in Seguin as well.   A hallmark of our medical staff has been and continues to be strong unity and dedication to patient care.

GRMC has a long history of successful private practice start ups through competitive income guarantees and an "incubator" system that allows new physicians to concentrate on their medical practice while gradually learning the intricacies of managing a business practice through administrative, staffing and managed care contracting support.   We will also consider contract or employment opportunites for physicians. 

We are currently actively recruiting for these full time positions:

1.  Neurologist — Our current neurologist will be returning to academic medicine in December 2012.   He has established a strong presence and practice for Seguin and the surrounding areas, with an emphasis on EMG diagnostics.   This practice is established and ready for transitioning as soon as possible.

2.  Hospitalist — GRMC currently has two full time hospitalists who rotate every other week.   We would like to add a third hospitalist to this rotation to increase stability.  The rotation would allow for two physicians on each week, alternating evening call, working two out of every three weeks.  Total patient volume ranges from 15 to 30 patients a day, to be shared by the two physicians.
