I would initially like to thank you for your interest in our group. Sound practice decisions are critical to the health of patients, Physicians, and Physician groups. Deciding on a good fit for a Physician and a practice is essential. In this section I would like to introduce the ideals and foundations that define North Valley Emergency Specialists as an entity.
Community: We serve the Northwest part of the Valley of the Sun. The Emergency Department at Banner Thunderbird sees approximately 70,000 visits annually. We have a Pediatric ED that has seen increasing volumes for the past 3 years. We are the base station for the expanding communities of the West Valley. We are leaders and innovators in care initiatives ranging from sepsis and door to cath lab times, to in-department child-care specialists and Psych ED protocols.
Standards: Board certification/eligibility in Emergency Medicine or Pediatric Emergency Medicine are required. We also employ Physicians Assistants with experience in emergent or urgent care. Full and part time positions are available.
Stewardship: We have a well-established relationship with our administration and the other Physicians of our community. We are committed to the maintenance of those relationships and the strengthening of professional ties that will allow for the best care of our patients.
Family: NVES is very aware of the stresses and needs of its Physicians and Physician Assistants. We have all chosen a job that puts inherent stresses on our health and well-being. Scheduling, staffing levels, meetings, and business commitments are important components of the kind of practice you will be comfortable with. I will be glad to discuss the details of our group’s efforts to maintain an environment that is conducive to caregiver safety and health concerns.
Vision: Our goal is to establish NVES as the premier clinical group in Phoenix. We are driven to anchor our business model in fairness and equity. We are a strong group looking for like-minded colleagues.
