JACOBI HOSPITAL CATH LAB/ENDOVASCULAR PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT
The highly academic Cardiology division at Jacobi Medical Center (affiliated with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine) and North Central Bronx Hospital is seeking a highly motivated Physician Assistant to provide high quality treatment at all points of care within our Cardiac Cath and Endovascular Suite. Our Cardiac Cath Lab serves many roles including diagnostic right and left heart catheterization and a very robust Endovascular Interventional program with its own dedicated fellowship that is a model of collaboration between Interventional Cardiology and Vascular Surgery. In addition, we have a growing volume of EP device implants (Pacemakers, ICD, BiV ) that are performed by a highly skilled electrophysiologist. We are the first and only Hospital within the Health + Hospitals Corporation and only hospital in the Bronx with a Pulmonary Embolism response team (PERT) which utilizes the Cath Lab to deliver advanced therapies (suction embolectomy, catheter directed lysis). Our Hospital is also a founding member of the National PERT Consortium, one of the few hospitals in NYC and in the country with this designation.
This position requires teamwork, flexibility, and energy with attention to detail.
