The Heart Center at Driscoll Children's Hospital is seeking to add a Cardiothoracic Surgeon to work as a member of a multidisciplinary team of pediatric care providers. Driscoll Children's Hospital, a free-standing pediatric hospital, is advancing a comprehensive Heart Center to meet the healthcare needs of congenital heart patients in South Texas. Sub-specialty board eligible and/or certification is required and experience or advanced training is a plus.
Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery have been an integral part of Driscoll Children's Hospital since 1962. The Hospital and the Heart Center are committed to bringing state-of-the-art technology and quality service to 31 counties in South Texas. In 2017, the Heart Center had 9,479 outpatient and satellite visits, and performed more than 10,000 echocardiograms (140 TEEs and 1053 Fetals), more than 6000 EKGs, and more than 200 Cardiac Catheterizations (73% interventional). This position will provide the surgeon with a supportive surgical team and an opportunity to develop a high quality practice in congenital heart surgery.
Corpus Christi and the Rio Grande Valley offer a relaxed “island style” setting with miles of Gulf beaches and mild weather perfect for outdoor activities. South Texas offers world-class hunting, fishing, sailing and wind surfing. Golf, cycling and tennis are enjoyed year-round. The cost of living in South Texas is low, and there is no state income tax.
