As one of the nation’s leading pediatric health care systems, Nemours is committed to providing all children with their best chance to grow up healthy. We offer integrated, family-centered care to more than 300,000 children each year in our pediatric hospitals, specialty clinics and primary care practices in Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Nemours strives to ensure a healthier tomorrow for all children – even those who may never enter our doors – through our world-changing research, education and advocacy efforts. At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own. 

Recognizing the hospital’s role as a regional quaternary pediatric referral center providing cardiac diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for children from birth to adulthood, the department of pediatric anesthesiology and critical care medicine seeks to recruit a pediatric cardiac anesthesiologist to join four cardiac anesthesiologists in Jacksonville, Fl.  Five cardiac anesthesiologists provide anesthesia for approximately 250 cardiac surgical cases and 400-450 cardiac cath lab procedures annually.  The daily schedule provides 1-2 cardiac operating suites and 1 cath lab location.  The department has 18 physician FTEs and provides anesthesiology services for 15,000 cases per year.  Members of the department may apply for Mayo Clinic Faculty appointments. Call responsibility for cardiac cases is shared among five physicians from home; in-house general/trauma call opportunities are available on a limited basis for additional compensation.

The candidate must have completed a pediatric cardiac anesthesiology fellowship or have sufficient cardiac anesthesiology experience caring for neonates and older pediatric patients with congenital cardiac disease. 

The physician must be board certified by the ABA or board eligible in anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology. 

The physician must possess an unrestricted license to practice medicine in the state of Florida.

The candidate must be willing to serve as faculty teaching anesthesiology fellows and residents to care for pediatric patients with congenital cardiac disease.  The candidate will also have the opportunity to work with pediatric anesthetists in the department of anesthesiology.

The candidate will be credentialed to practice anesthesiology at Wolfson Children’s Hospital and Nemours Children’s Specialty Care and must be a member in good standing of the medical staff of both institutions.
