Crozer-Keystone Health Network, part of the Crozer-Keystone Health System, is seeking a board certified/eligible Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) specialist to serve as a 0.5 FTE member of our expanding practice, The Crozer Keystone Center for Perinatal Medicine. In this busy, hospital-based, consultative practice, MFM call will be shared among three Perinatologists.

Adjunct academic affiliation with Temple University School of Medicine is encouraged. This position is located just minutes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, convenient from the New Jersey and Main Line Philadelphia suburbs.
Crozer-Keystone Health Network provides a large referral base of almost 30 obstetricians, performing approximately 3,500 deliveries system wide, of which 20% are high risk. Our physicians are integral to a freestanding OB/GYN residency program with a total of 12 residents. Members of the Center for Perinatal Medicine are responsible for teaching residents through the supervision of the weekly High Risk Clinic and management of patients on the inpatient antepartum service.
The Center for Perinatal Medicine is an AIUM accredited practice, currently providing services to Crozer-Chester Medical Center (CCMC) and Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH). These services include a full complement of imaging, invasive and non-invasive screening, diagnostic and therapeutic options, fetal testing, and dedicated genetic counseling. In 2012, we expect our ultrasound volume to top 7,500, with over 2,700 testing visits.
CCMC is a 300-bed teaching hospital, admitting nearly 20,000 patients, treating approximately 50,000 Emergency Department patients, and delivering about 2,000 infants a year, with a Level 3 NICU. DCMH is a 170-bed community hospital that offers a broad range of acute and specialized services with more than 1,500 deliveries each year.
Since its beginning, the Crozer-Keystone Health System has been a dominant provider of women’s healthcare in Delaware County Pennsylvania, northern Delaware, and western New Jersey. The mission of the Center for Perinatal Medicine is to continue to expand services throughout this region, providing high quality comprehensive consultative care for both low and high risk women during their pregnancy.
