About the Organization
A vital strength of our health systems has been the highly-dedicated physicians who provide a wealth of medical expertise and knowledge to the community we serve. In August 2022, we became Ochsner Rush Health. For more than 100 years, our physician network has delivered the highest quality health care services combining the latest in technology and treatments. Our medical staff represents all major medical and surgical specialties. With over 200 physicians and advance practice providers affiliated with 7 hospitals and over 25 clinics, our network is one of the largest in the state of Mississippi, extending into East Mississippi and West Alabama. As an employed physician, you would receive numerous benefits such as an attractive base salary plus productivity incentive, coverage of professional malpractice insurance, health and disability insurance, attractive pension plan options, CME allowance, PTO, coverage of relocation expenses and a very competitive recruitment package.
