Location: Bellingham, WA
We're looking for an experienced perfusionist or strong new grad to join our team in Bellingham, Washington!
Most cases are scheduled - there is an occasional weekend case, but rarely is there a weeknight call. The caseload consists of CABGs Valves, Circarrest, Asc Ao, VADs on standby for TAVRs, convergents and lead extraction -all adult only. There are typically 230 to 320 cases annually, so about 115 per perfusionist. The two perfusionists work with three surgeons that are all fast and easy-going. This account does have limited ECMO.
Bellingham is right on the water, too! It's a short boat ride from the San Juan Islands, one hour from the Mt. Baker ski area, one hour from Vancouver, and only an hour and a half to Seattle.
