Why would a physician consider practicing at Orange City Area Health System?
A message from our CEO Marty Guthmiller …
If you or someone you know is a physician considering a rural practice … please consider Orange City Area Health System. You might be surprised at what you find here.
Here are some reasons that merit a closer look …
- Quality of Life. Our Core Values and the distinct values of our community and the region we serve create an environment and promote a culture that nurtures and supports well-being and healthy families. In fact, Sioux County is ranked the healthiest county in the state of Iowa, based on several key factors.
- A medical community friendly to family physicians. Family medicine is our “bread and butter.” It is our core, our strength, and central to all we do. The camaraderie and collegiality among our physicians provides a team approach fostering meaningful interaction with other medical professionals.
- Top-notch schools. Orange City offers options for public schools (MOC-Floyd Valley) and private schools (Orange City Christian School and Unity Christian High School) – both of which are excellent on many levels. In addition, Northwestern College – a four year liberal arts college – contributes a vibrant dynamic to the area’s culture, entertainment, and education.
- Size and scope of our community. Orange City is a progressive community with all the needed amenities – from many great restaurants and shops … to parks, trails, an award-winning golf course, and other recreation and entertainment. Yet it has a special “old world charm” with a vibrant Main Street and safe, nurturing neighborhoods. We are located within an hour of the Iowa Great Lakes and Sioux Falls, and 45 minutes from Sioux City.
- Income opportunities. Orange City Area Health System offers employment contracts with guaranteed minimums negotiated by specialty and specific situation.
- Benefits. We offer an excellent benefits package which, as a municipal employer, includes IPERS (Iowa Public Employee Retirement System) – a wonderful retirement option with mandated significant employer matching.
- Loan forgiveness. We offer an attractive loan forgiveness package for repayment of student loans. Typically, these loans are forgiven over a 4 to 5 year period.
- Signing bonus. As part of a comprehensive, extremely competitive package, we offer signing bonuses for physicians joining our team.
