Better Health for All

Santa Clara Valley Health & Hospital System (SCVHHS), a large public teaching healthcare system, affiliated with Stanford University School of Medicine, is seeking part-time BC/BE orthopedics surgeon physician, to join our dynamic practice in our Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

We offer the unparalleled opportunity to gain the long-term personal and professional satisfaction of serving our patients and our diverse community, while teaching the next generation of health care providers, in one of the best places to live in the United States.


About the organization

Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System (SCVHHS) is the second-largest County-owned health and hospital system in California and is committed to improving the health of the 1.8 million people of Santa Clara County. As of March 2019, SCVHHS is comprised of three hospitals: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC - a 574-bed central hospital), O’Connor Hospital (OCH), and Saint Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH); in addition SCVHHS includes a large primary care network comprised of nine health centers throughout the County (including our newest center in downtown San Jose, which opened in 2016), several urgent care clinics, a broad-range of specialty services in our Valley Specialty Center, comprehensive dental services, a large behavioral health department, public health, EMS, and Valley Health Plan.  

SCVMC itself hosts five residency training programs and partners with Stanford University Medical Center for the training of residents and fellows in many Stanford-based specialties. SCVMC also features a Level 1 Trauma Center, Burn Center, Primary Stroke Center, and a CARF-accredited Rehabilitation Center. Owing to its geographic location and specialty offerings, SCVMC not only serves the County, but also the larger region.  

Providers in our health system also have the unique opportunity to use our integrated electronic health record (Epic), which brings together system-wide patient information.   Recently, the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) recognized SCVMC for achieving its highest level of success (Stage 7), based on our continuous innovation and optimization of our inpatient and outpatient EHR.


About the community

SCVHHS is located in San Jose, California in the heart of Silicon Valley, offering a diverse choice of cultural, recreational, and lifestyle opportunities. Our physicians live in a range of communities, including urban (e.g., San Francisco), university (e.g., Palo Alto), high tech (e.g., many cities of Silicon Valley), mountain (e.g., Los Gatos), beach (e.g. Santa Cruz), and rural/agricultural (e.g., Gilroy). Situated in one of the most desirable regions of the country – only 45 minutes from the Monterey Bay and three hours from the Sierra Nevada – our physicians enjoy a very high quality of life.


About the Department

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC) provides Level 1 Trauma and orthopaedic sub-specialty care to the patients of Santa Clara County and serves as a training site for Stanford Orthopaedic Surgery Residents. The county acquired St Louise Regional Hospital (SLRH) in 2019 and is looking to build an Orthopaedic Surgery practice and establish a level 3 trauma center at this growing South Bay location in Morgan Hill, CA.


About the Position

The department is currently seeking a surgeon who can provide general orthopaedic care to patients at SLRH starting on a part-time (20 hrs/week) basis with the opportunity to become a full-time position. Comfort with managing operative and non-operative pediatric orthopaedic injuries is a plus. For those with the appropriate training and interest, the job can include a trauma, arthroplasty, sports, or hand surgery practice. This position is ideal for highly motivated surgeons who want to take advantage of growth opportunities to build an orthopaedic practice at SLRH to meet the increasing need for orthopaedic care in the greater Morgan Hill area.


About compensation and benefits

We offer competitive compensation, generous comprehensive benefit package (including 53 days of leave per year), paid malpractice, vibrant professional environment, opportunity for career growth, and the opportunity to serve a multicultural patient population.

If you are interested in joining a practice with unparalleled personal and professional advantages, then please submit your letter of interest and CV to Roya Rousta at MD.Recruitment@hhs.sccgov.org.
