The Ideal Candidate
The SHARE physician should be a compassionate provider; rendering care to terminally ill patients, underprivileged populations, and those seeking to improve their health status. It is a multi-faceted position, allowing a physician to maintain variety and creativity in their workload. This individual provides 24/7 on-call phone availability to the hospice program with the support of an associate medical director and a team of advance practice nurses. This individual will be the medical “face” of the SHARE Foundation, building relationships with the medical community and providing education to the general public. This person must have the heart of a teacher and be willing to help clinicians provide the best care possible while working with patients and families to better understand their disease process and overall health. The physician will be granted wide latitude and flexibility in scheduling their days. As in any medical field, there are documentation and regulatory requirements. However, training will be provided in order to accomplish these duties. This person will have a collaborative role with agency directors as well as the SHARE President/CEO. This is an opportunity for a caring and mission minded physician to make a real impact in a local community.
Our Background and the Agencies Served by this Position
SHARE Foundation was established in 1996 as a 501(c)(3) with the vision of building a healthier community, and endowed with the proceeds from the sale of the local hospital. Today SHARE has five agencies that support its vision to build a healthier community. Three of those agencies will be directly impacted by the SHARE Physician’s influence.
SHARE is located in the charming town of El Dorado, AR, the seat for Union County. El Dorado has been known for its connection to the oil and gas industry and serves as headquarters for New York Stock Exchange-traded Murphy Oil Corporation, Murphy USA, and Deltic Timber Corporation, as well as significant branch operations of Clean Harbors, Delek US/Lion Oil, Lanxess, LSB lndustries/EI Dorado Chemical, and Nexans AmerCable. These employers have provided generous financial support to the community. One such example of this support is the 'EI Dorado Promise', a scholarship program established by Murphy Oil Corporation that provides El Dorado high school graduates with up to full tuition at any accredited public or private institution of higher learning. Additionally, its citizenry has demonstrated tremendous community pride and support through its volunteerism, of which SHARE is a beneficiary. While El Dorado is home to the South Arkansas Symphony and hosts several cultural festivals throughout the year, it has embarked upon expanding its cultural reach within the region; with $80 million in local corporate, private and taxpayer support, El Dorado Festival & Events, Inc. is creating an arts and entertainment district that will have a performance venue, restaurants, and green spaces with play areas for children.
