Chief Perfusionist

Position: Chief Perfusionist 

Location: Mishawaka, IN (South Bend, IN)

Description: We have a unique opportunity at Saint Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Mishawaka, IN (South Bend, IN). After years with volume of 90- 125 hearts the Hospital Administration made the decision that the top priority would be to build the largest, most innovative open heart program in the region. Perfusion was a part of a team to develop the recommendations of what would need to be done to accomplish this. The plan is now being put in place. A new Chief CT Surgeon was recently hired with the mandate to be innovative, cutting edge and add volume to the program. A new hybrid room is being added and we will have the opportunity to recommend all new perfusion equipment. There is a strong commitment to spend the dollars needed to make this the leading cardiac surgery program in the area.

We are looking for a Chief Perfusionist to be the leader for these changes. Someone who would oversee what we have now, but more importantly add perfusion input into the changes and hire and manage the people need to keep up with the growth. Good opportunity for a seasoned perfusionist looking for a management and leadership opportunity. Our services also include HIPEC, autotransfusion, PRP, IABP, and occasional ECMO. Our cases are mostly CABGs & Valves, with occasional ascending aneurysm repairs. We seek an energetic experienced Perfusionist (4+ years experience) to lead our group (current staffing: 1 additional Staff Perfusionist and 3 Autotransfusion Techs) in a new, state of the art facility.

We offer a competitive salary and a complete benefit package including: health, life, and dental, 401K w/ match, educational expense and generous vacation.

The greater South Bend area has a population in excess of 500,000 people, is the home of Notre Dame University as well as five other major universities, and is the cultural, medical, athletic and academic capital of the region. The area is consistently rated one of the most affordable and family friendly regions in the country.

Job Type: Full-time


  • Graduate from an accredited Perfusion Program.
  • Board Certified by the ABCP.
