Opportunity

Primary Care Physicians

The Position

We have immediate opportunities for primary care physicians: Internal medicine, Family Medicine and Pediatrics,OB/GYN. We also have needs for surgeons and sub-specialist surgeons to serve short-term or long-term at our hospital in South Asia.

The Need

Memorial Christian Hospital (MCH) has been operating since 1966, and today this 60 bed hospital serves a patient population of over 10 million. MCH sees an average of 40,000 outpatients every year with diseases typical in any outpatient department in North America such as diabetes, hypertension, colds, sore throats and rashes. But, we also see diseases particular to developing countries; TB, typhoid, parasites, diarrheal diseases, and malnutrition. Among these patients are those with traumatic injuries, burns, cancers, malformations, and many diagnostic conundrums. In this predominantly Muslim nation, our outpatient department is often our patients’ first contact with Christianity.

MCH currently has specialties in obstetrics, general surgery, orthopedics, and family medicine. The breadth of these specialties is vast and includes just about any patient that walks through the door. Each year we perform close to 2,000 surgeries, deliver 1,500 babies and do about 500 C-sections. On average there are about 4,000 patients a year admitted to the hospital. The hospital also has robust pharmacy, laboratory, x-ray, and physical therapy departments. Our Limb and Brace center is one of the few places in the country making custom made artificial limbs and braces.

The Impact

Memorial Christian Hospital plays an important role in reaching our area. Offering compassionate, excellent medical care in Christ’s name creates an openness to the good news. Both expat and national staff have many opportunities to share truth with patients and family members. Treating patients also strengthens the outreach of local believers.

Our hospital is a hub for many other strategic ministries and provides an umbrella of credibility for each one. A Christian elementary school, Bible college, a health-science college, a tribal outreach project, a handicraft project, a literacy program, and several translation projects draw in hundreds of participants and are all located on our hospital's campus. Two health clinics and four new church-plants reach out with Christ’s love and are within driving distance of the campus.

We’d love to talk to you about this opportunity.
