Idaho Urologic Institute is now hiring a urologist (MD/DO) in Meridian/Boise, Idaho.
We’re excited that you’ve decided to consider us as your future professional family. Our culture is extremely collegial and family-like and all physicians share, consult, and drive the culture along with the leadership team. Upon arrival, a physician preceptor will be connected to you as your single point-of-contact (and we want this connection to be a good “fit” too). As a physician, you can enjoy the unique opportunity of owning some or all of the organizations comprising and associated with IUI/SCI (five different companies in total). Along with an amazing culture, the operations of the organization foster an environment with an excellent work/life balance where quality of life is high and burnout is low but you will be busy. And most of the providers use a scribe to maximize the efficiency of their day and to minimize time spent completing charts.
The IUI/SCI family is staffed by nearly 120 people with nine (9) physicians and four (4) very experienced PAs. In addition, we like to brag about having nearly 200 years of urology experience. And we have two fellowship trained urologists, one in Infertility (Dr John Greer) and one in Reconstructive Surgery (Dr Lisa Parrillo). Given our amazing breadth of experience, our quality of care and patient experience are consistently outstanding in male, female, and pediatric urology. Our market share continues to increase and we’re easily at 65% or higher (our only competition is employed at the local hospital). Also, we are seeing incredible growth in the clinic (19%) and ASC (14%) vs 2017. The Idaho Department of Labor projects 21% growth in the 50 and over age group so we anticipate increased demand for services over the next several years.
One of our goals has always been to maximize patient convenience by offering the entire continuum of urologic services and ancillaries at our main facility (a “one-stop-shop” for your patients). Initially, your clinic and all outpatient surgeries will be at this location. Our services consist of an ASC (SCI) with three large ORs, cysto suite area w/ four rooms, procedure suite area with two rooms, 3 to 4 exam rooms per provider, IMRT department (linear accelerator and Xofigo), 16-slice CT, X-ray, DEXA, ultrasound, research department, in-house billing/pre-auth/financial counseling department, clinical laboratory and cryopreservation, in-house pharmacy, retail service line (includes Sildenafil, VEDs, and RestoreX for Peyronie’s Disease treatment), and a clinical nurse visits department. We have established an advanced prostate cancer clinic, an overactive bladder clinic, a bone/stone clinic, and we’re working on several other clinical programs. In addition, we place fiducials and SpaceOAR for most patients in advance of them starting radiation therapy. We strive to add new services on a regular basis after a clinical and business assessment and because we’re independent (without a big hospital bureaucracy), we can evaluate and implement quickly.
The benefit of SCI being on-site is that you can be in clinic and minutes later be performing a surgery, cysto, or other procedure (this is particularly nice if you have a patient in clinic that has an urgent need). And we have less than 10 minute OR turnover times so no time is wasted waiting for your OR to be setup.
All physicians are in a “Valley” (regional) call rotation and IUI provides 100% of ER call to Saint Alphonsus Boise and Nampa hospitals, 50% of call for St Luke’s Boise and Meridian hospitals, 70% of call at the Boise VA medical center (this is paid call), and 100% of call at Vibra hospital (LTAC; also paid call and volume is extremely low). Also, there are many opportunities at “outside” facilities such as the Salmon Hospital, VA, and Mountain Home locations for clinic and surgery.
Compensation is extremely competitive with similar sized metropolitan areas and it includes 4-weeks PTO, sign-on bonus, CME expenses, cell phone, moving expenses, a generous 401K profit sharing contribution, and a production bonus.
Once you’re a partner, the compensation methodology is designed so you can exceed the national average since you “control your own destiny.” In addition, if you have an entrepreneurial spirit, the culture is very much based on full transparency and opportunities to involve yourself in the business of medicine. Most of the urologists in the region eventually buy-into the mobile lithotripter company which is separate from IUI (and several IUI physicians are on the board of this company).
Boise, Meridian, and the surrounding area (Treasure Valley) is one of the fastest growing areas in the country and offers year-round activities from hiking, hunting, fishing, skiing, water sports, and everything in between (weather is temperate most of the year with short spikes in the summer and winter). Many new housing subdivisions and some very impressive private schools are spread across the area. Crime is low and quality of life is high.
