SSM Health Dean Medical Group, a 450+ physician multi-specialty group, is actively recruiting a CRNA (.80-1.0FTE) to join our anesthesia department at St. Mary's Hospital in Janesville. Janesville is geographically located between Chicago, Madison and Milwaukee. We recently opened a new, state-of-the-art hospital and clinic building. The department currently consists of 4 physicians and 9 CRNA's. St. Mary's Janesville Hospital has 7 operating rooms which includes one that is dedicated to c-sections. Typical case load includes general surgery, orthopedics, OB, ENT and healthy pediatrics. The call schedule will be 1:7.
The new medical campus in Janesville opened in 2012. It includes the 50-bed St. Mary's Janesville Hospital and the connected Dean Medical Group physician offices and medical complex. The surgeons enjoy the convenience of practicing in a beautiful new facility in which physician offices are just a brief stroll to the operating rooms. The hospital provides health care services from Urgent Care to ICU, and a recently added on site radiation oncology facility. It also benefits from being part of the greater SSMHC/Dean system, with the sister hospital, St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, just 35 miles north of Janesville. Electronic medical records are also seamlessly connected throughout the hospital, clinic, and the entire Dean system via Epic.
A mid-sized city of 60,000 people, Janesville residents enjoy their beautiful, family-oriented community for its excellent schools and abundant recreational opportunities. Residents enjoy a plentiful array of golfing, hiking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and other outdoor activities. Janesville was settled in 1836 after Henry Janes traveled to the area. Proud of their heritage, Janesville's residents have shown great dedication to the restoration of the city's early buildings and homes. Of particular interest is the Look West Historic District, an early neighborhood with connections to the city's rail and manufacturing history.
