July 22, 2021 Jennifer Goodwin

Morris Hospital Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (MHOSM), a mid-size, employed group with modern state-of-the-art offices is seeking a successor for a busy and well-known physician who plans to retire in the next few years. We are seeking a physician who is motivated, has a strong work ethic and desires to become part of a successful orthopedic team. This is an AMAZING opportunity for a surgeon since you will be addressing an established community need and embedded in a well-managed practice that’s been deeply rooted in a large service area for over 28 years.  We currently don’t have anyone who does revisions.  We’re looking for someone who’s interested in total knee & hip; anterior hip approach is great, but not required.

We also renovated our infusion therapy, imaging (new women’s center!), outpatient lab services and main lobby patient flow.  Starting this Spring as part of Phase 3, we will be modernizing our surgical waiting room and ORs and updating our patient registration process. All Master Facility Plan updates are estimated to be completed late 2022.
