Join this team of compassionate and driven Labor and Delivery (L&D) professionals and enhance your professional experience while utilizing top-notch patient care models.

This past year, we made the difficult but necessary decision to temporarily close our obstetrics program. To reestablish our obstetrics program, we continue to seek out and recruit talented physicians who can provide the appropriate level of care for the women and babies in our community.

Alta Vista Regional Hospital continues to provide emergency-only OB/GYN services.

We have made significant progress in reestablishing our OB program. Our progress to date:
•Implemented vigorous recruiting efforts to secure necessary physicians and nurses to run the obstetrics program. ?To date, we have conducted interviews with 18 providers. We have four potential candidates scheduled for site visits in the coming weeks and remain hopeful that we will be able to staff our unit appropriately to safety care for patients in the near future.
?We are working with a prominent physician recruitment firm and will potentially utilize temporary providers to re-establish the program.

•Increased monetary signing bonuses by as much as 50% as an enticement to relocate to San Miguel County.
•Formed partnerships with teaching colleges and medical programs. We partnered with the University of New Mexico and their "BA to MD" program to create attractive recruitment packages and increase interest in relocating.
•Working to enhance the benefits we provide physicians through National Health Services Corps status through the establishment of our rural health clinic, Las Vegas Medical Group. This clinic is staffed by a primary care physician we recruited as well as a family nurse practitioner. ?Importantly, National Health Services Corps status allows us to help physicians repay medical education loans in exchange for a commitment to serve in our community for a period of at least two-years.
