Job Description


Lutheran Children’s Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana seeks to recruit a BC/BE Pediatric Hospitalist to join a dedicated inpatient pediatric hospitalist team.  LCH has a comprehensive staff of pediatric subspecialists, psychosocial staff, and all standard pediatric supportive services. New program development with potential for a leadership role. It is a well-resourced pediatric department with enthusiastic staff, who demonstrate a level of morale far above average.  The patient volume is modest and the hospitalists enjoy the backup of the pediatric critical care team which is in-house and available to assess sick patients at night.  The hospitalist is typically present during daytime hours for rounds and available for call from home at night, typically every fourth night.  The volume is modest, e.g. 3-4 admissions per 24 hours. The position will start with 12-hour blocks until facility hires a full complement of physicians.   Although the service is not typically resident-run, there are significant opportunities for both formal and informal teaching of medical students and residents.  The perspectives and QI interests of incoming hospitalists are welcomed, and physicians are respected as partners with opportunities to share in leadership roles.  The hospitalist is expected to enthusiastically embrace opportunities to meet such standard needs as consulting and supporting the pediatric ED when needed, performing standard procedures (e.g. LP), and attending departmental meetings.  *No Visa support.

A comprehensive compensation package will be offered and may include:

  • Base Salary plus Incentive
  • Commencement Bonus
  • Medical Education Debt Repayment    
  • Relocation
  • CME

Lutheran Children’s Hospital (LCH) is the first comprehensive children’s hospital in Fort Wayne. Since opening in 1999, LCH has created a dedicated “children’s hospital within a hospital” concept with recent facility investment of $10M and upcoming NICU renovation of $4M.  LCH is a tertiary care facility, with neonatal, maternal/fetal and pediatric transport programs that includes Lutheran Air and dedicated LCH Mobile Intensive Care Units, as well as a verified Level II Pediatric Trauma Center.      

Level III Pediatric/PICU and NICU/OB care are currently focused at LCH (south) but sister-facilities including Dupont Hospital (north) and St. Joseph hospital (downtown) are developing coordinated, network systems of care for mother/baby and pediatrics that will result in more robust pediatric and perinatal programs of excellence and elevate the overall level of pediatric medicine in Northeast Indiana.
