Staff Perfusionist

Position: Staff Perfusionist

Location: Sioux Falls, SD



Named by Forbes Magazine as one of the nation's top small cities for business and careers, Sioux Falls, South Dakota is a great place to practice. The Avera Heart Hospital, located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota is a 55-bed, nationally recognized leader in heart and vascular care. Because of retirement, we are seeking a Staff Perfusionist to complete our experienced team of three. Our practice is limited to adult procedures- primarily CABG, valve replacements and aortic surgery. Four cardiovascular surgeons perform over 300 cases per year. We are not currently performing ECMO or VADs. Off-pump procedures are rare. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, performing procedures relative to the physiologic management of the patient's circulatory and respiratory functions during cardiac surgery.

Position requires the ability to work independently and possess good problem solving skills necessary to interact in a professional manner with the entire healthcare team, patient, and families.

The Avera Heart Hospital has consistently been nationally recognized for quality patient care- most recently receiving a double 5 star rating from CMS for 'Patient Experience' and 'Overall Quality'.
