A state of the art Rural Health Clinic in Lake City, CO (elevation 8,861’) seeks a medical director to oversee two provider staff and provide primary and urgent care to residents and tourists in a beautiful, remote mountain town!

This is your opportunity to practice world class medicine in a rural mountain community.  Lake City is home to a state of the art rural health clinic located in the heart of the San Juan Mountains.  We are seeking a BC/BE family physician to assume the role of medical director for the clinic and lab.  You would oversee two advance practice providers along with trained support staff and provide general office based care with some trauma, critical care, and some on call responsibility. 


The clinic is open Monday through Saturday 10:00am-4:00pm and Sunday 2:00pm-4:00pm.  The town has two “seasons” of medical care.  They experience a large influx of tourists during the summer months, so you will see mostly urgent/emergent care during that time, then the rest of the year the clinic provides more preventative and chronic care for the local residents during the offseason.  As the lab director you will sign off on labs that were ordered on a weekly basis. 


The clinic has on-site lab, x-ray, emergency services, a dental operatory, and a training/meeting room.  An EHR system is well established.  The closest hospital has 35 beds and is 55 miles away.


The town is tucked into a grassy canyon in the heart of the mountains and offers a supportive community, small town character, world class fishing, a beautiful 375 acre lake, and a vast, stunning natural landscape with 14,000 ft mountains nearby.  The town school system has been ranked among the highest in the state.  It is the perfect location for a family or enthusiasts of outdoor mountain activities.
