CMH was awarded the prestigious Davis Award of Excellence by the Health Information and Management Systems Society, and has been recognized for its innovative efforts associated with its organizational patient electronic medical record system. CMH was also named a Most Wired and Most Wireless Hospital, and was named one of the Top 10 Rural Hospitals in America. CMH is one of the 10 largest employers in southwest Missouri. In 2010, CMH was awarded the Missouri Quality Award, which is modeled after the coveted Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

Citizens Memorial Healthcare (CMH) in Bolivar, Missouri, is seeking an OB/GYN to join the Bolivar community.  Currently, there are two OB/GYNs that practice in Bolivar.  There are three family practice physicians who do low-risk obstetrics.  CMH has a drawing area of over 100,000.  There are approximately 600 births each year at CMH.  While CMH does not employ OB/GYNs, CMH is willing to enter into a recruiting agreement with an OB/GYN if they will come to Bolivar for a private practice opportunity. 

The physician will have two options: 1) join an existing group; or 2) start a new practice. 

The existing group is called Bolivar OB/GYN, a division of Signature Medical Group, one of the largest physician-owned groups in the Midwest.  Signature employs over 80 physicians, and they anticipate doubling in size in a short time.  The physicians at Bolivar OB/GYN would be excited to have a new partner.  Signature Health Services has a comprehensive benefits package, and their physicians earn nationally competitive compensation.  Bolivar is located in a healthcare shortage area, so you could also receive loan repayment through the National Health Service Corps.

Bolivar OB/GYN provides obstetrical and gynecological services to their patients.  Their gynecological services include laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery including hysterectomy, hysteroscopic guided endometrial ablation including HTA and Novasure and Essure tubal occlusion. Their in-office services include: an office sonographer with GE Voluson 730 4D ultrasound capabilities; NSTs; LEEP; Her Option endometrial ablation; a Cutera laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation system with trained providers; and a weight loss program through Take Shape for Life.  One of their physicians also performs a wide range of urogynecology services. 
CMH would also consider helping an OB/GYN establish a new practice in Bolivar. 

Bolivar is a great small town of approximately 10,325 residents.  The public school system is first-rate academically and athletically.  There are several public parks and a relatively new YMCA (a state-of-the-art aquatics center will open in September).  Bolivar is just a short drive from several lakes and rivers.  Bolivar is also located 25 miles north of Springfield, the third largest city in Missouri.

Please contact Donna Shelby, Director of Physician Recruiting for more information about this or other opportunities available at CMH, an Award Winning organization.  She can be reached at 417-328-6273 or donna.shelby@citizensmemorial.com.
