Psychiatrist: Outpatient Opportunity (Hybrid Telehealth) in Norwalk, Connecticut (50 miles from New York City)

Nuvance Health, formerly known as Western Connecticut Health, is seeking a full-time outpatient psychiatrist in Norwalk, Connecticut. Norwalk is located in suburban Fairfield County about 50 miles northeast of New York City along the shore of the Long Island Sound and nearby to Westchester County in New York. Affiliated with Norwalk Hospital, our established practice has seven psychiatrists and two nurse practitioners with opportunities for teaching psychiatry residents and medical students. Our busy practice is long established with a highly collegial and supportive working environment. This is an outpatient role with limited hospital coverage obligations. Our outpatient work is a hybrid model conducted by tele-health and in-person. Telehealth is an option full or part-time. Opportunity includes sign on bonus and relocation allowance.

The ideal candidate will be a board certified/eligible psychiatrist. Spanish speaking is a plus. Occasional weekend coverage is shared with a nurse practitioner and paid at an additional per diem rate. Our program offers teaching appointments, working with Nuvance Health psychiatry residents and medical students from the University of Vermont. This is an employed position with a highly competitive compensation and benefits package, including generous allowances for CMEs and Dues expenses and CME time.

Norwalk Hospital has 366 beds and is also a Level II Trauma Center with approximately 50,000 ED visits per year. As a teaching hospital, we are associated with the University of Vermont College of Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine, Ross University School of Medicine and the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. Our Medical Group includes 900+ physicians and advanced practice providers, serving a geographically broad region throughout Western Connecticut and eastern New York.

Astride a hill with a commanding view of the Long Island Sound, Norwalk Hospital serves a varied and attractive region of Southern Connecticut. The hospital is just minutes from beautiful places to hike, swim, sail or just walk along the beach. Connecticut Magazine recently named South Norwalk as the "hottest" nightspot between Boston and New York City, with a plethora of theater groups and restaurants to choose from. The area has highly rated public schools. New York City is easily accessible by car or train.

Norwalk Hospital is now part of Nuvance Health. Nuvance Health serves 1.5 million residents across New York and Connecticut and includes more than 2,600 aligned physicians, 12,000 employees, seven hospitals (Danbury Hospital, New Milford Hospital, Northern Dutchess Hospital, Norwalk Hospital, Putnam Hospital Center, Sharon Hospital, and Vassar Brothers Medical Center), a large network of primary care and specialty practices, and multiple affiliated organizations.
