We are clinicians motivated by the desire to make a purposeful difference in the communities we serve, and in how health care is delivered.
Kaiser Permanente-Washington Permanente Medical Group is seeking a Part Time 0.6 FTE Salaried Locum Family Medicine Physician to join our Gig Harbor Medical Center team in Gig Harbor, Washington.
Gig Harbor Medical Center, to open in December 2018, is one five new Kaiser Permanente medical centers opening in the next 18 months. It will serve diverse health needs, from young families to older Medicare members, including the healthy & engaged, patients with chronic disease, and complex patients with social challenges affecting their health.
Benefits include: Full malpractice indemnification (including tail coverage), medical benefits, 401(k), paid vacation, post-graduate educational leave, postgraduate funding, employer contributions to social security.
Gig Harbor, with a population of 9,110, is ranked among the top five Best Small Towns in America by Smithsonian Magazine. Located along State Route 16, just across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from Tacoma, Gig Harbor boasts panoramic views of Mt. Rainier, the Cascade and the Olympic mountains. With close access to several state and city parks, and an historic waterfront that includes boutiques and fine dining, it is a vibrant, growing, economically healthy, maritime community. Many commercial fishing boats make Gig Harbor their home port and the fishing fleet still gathers the first weekend in June (during the Maritime Gig Festival) in the center of the bay for the annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony.
We are dedicated to building lifetime relationships with peers and patients in Washington State's richly diverse communities. Many know the Pacific Northwest as an attractive tourist destination with beautiful scenery, friendly people, and a host of cultural and recreational opportunities. These elements, and others, make Washington an excellent place to live.
