You take care of patients.
We'll take care of everything else.
You've spent years learning and training to provide outstanding care for your patients. That's why our model lets you focus on taking care of them. Our physicians have wrap-around practice and administrative support to do many of the things that aren't clinical, from answering emails to providing follow-up instructions, to helping secure social services for your patients.
We take care of you, too, with exceptional compensation packages, market-leading retirement contributions, gold-star health benefits, generous PTO, sabbatical opportunities, continuing medical education time and allowance, and leadership development through our in-house Northwest Permanente University.
Our integrated model fosters an environment that encourages and rewards innovation, providing our staff with ample opportunities to explore their interests. A recipient Healthgrades 50 Best Hospitals awards, Vohs and Lawrence awards, and 3-star ratings from Society of Thoracic Surgeons (to name just a few), we put innovative ideas forward while doing the right thing for patients. And we want your voice at our table.
Working for Northwest Permanente, you'll enjoy:
- 21% employer contribution to retirement programs, including pension (This is not a match; NWP contributes 21% of clinician earnings to retirement programs regardless of employee contribution)
- Up to 95% employer-paid, best-in-class health plans for employee and dependents
- Relocation allowance
- Leadership opportunities
- Paid annual education leave + allowance
- Shareholder opportunities

Required Qualifications/Position Description:
Northwest Permanente, P.C. is currently seeking a Board Certified or Eligible Pediatrician to join our medical group in Salem, Oregon. The position involves primary care paneling for both acute and routine ambulatory health care needs, inpatient pediatric and nursery rounding, as well as cross coverage. Clinic hours are spread over 4 days per week with office visits and virtual care portions.
The position is primarily at the North Lancaster Medical Office, where services include primary care (adult and pediatric), urgent care, as well as several specialty services, a full-service lab, and imaging.
Inpatient rounding is for Kaiser Permanente pediatric patients admitted to Salem Hospital in a rotating hospitalist model. Scope of inpatient practice includes routine newborn and pediatric care and limited NICU care for infants 35 weeks and older. Salem Hospital has a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with 24/7 coverage by NNP and neonatology. Higher level of inpatient pediatric and newborn care depends on individual skills and comfort. Inpatient pediatric subspecialty care is via phone consult with Kaiser Permanente and other specialists at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. PALS required.
Inpatient work averages one in eight weeks, with the same pediatrician covering the hospital Monday through Thursday mornings, as well as one in eight weekends (Friday through Sunday call). Weeknight call is also one in eight nights on average.
