Dear Colleague:

As a physician, I am inspired by the expertise and commitment of my colleagues throughout eastern North Carolina. They each recognize the particular health care challenges in this region of the state and are designing innovative ways to meet them. As a result, they enjoy meaningful, fulfilling relationships with their patients, and see the difference their care makes in the community on a daily basis.

Vidant Health offers an invigorating environment that is synonymous with growth. It includes a 974-bed academic medical center, seven community hospitals and more than 85 ambulatory practices within Vidant Medical Group throughout our 29-county service area. Together with East Carolina University, we have recently completed major expansions of our cardiovascular, pediatric and cancer services.
Our service area covers the eastern one-third of North Carolina, a region larger than the state of Maryland. To serve the farthest reaches of this area, we provide a critical care transport program featuring four helicopters, eight ground ambulances operating from eight regional locations. These services provide ready access to the full resources of Vidant Health and The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. Together, we feel empowered to help the 1.4 million people who live here achieve better health. Unlike many other health systems, we have the means to meet this challenge. Vidant Health includes 12,000+ employees serving nearly 1,500 inpatient beds and Vidant Medical Group, which features more than 400 providers in a variety of primary and specialty care venues throughout the region.
More than quantity, we are committed to quality in every aspect of what we do. We measure our performance against nationally established benchmarks that keep us at the forefront of evidence-based medicine and patient satisfaction. It gets us noticed. You’ll find us featured in popular magazines, in professional journals and on lists of top-quality hospitals. Given the increasing demand for our services, we are a fast-growing, physician-led career destination for professionals. Supported by our dynamic clinical infrastructure and financial stability, you’ll find yourself free to focus on mission-driven medicine within the appealing coastal lifestyle of eastern North Carolina.

I am pleased that you are considering joining us at Vidant Health.
The materials on this page barely skim the surface of the inspiring environment waiting for you here. If you feel that your professional goals align with ours, I encourage you to get to know us.
