Whether you are coming out of training or looking to make a job change, you’ll find what you’re looking for at ChristianaCare.

We’re a physician-led organization, focused on excellence and centered on doing what’s best for the patient. Physicians are resourced to be at their best, and we strive to ensure everyone has a healthy work/life balance.

The Delaware and Brandywine Valleys are an interesting microcosm of the United States. The result is our caregivers work with a very diverse patient mix and our physicians get to see cases other physicians rarely encounter. Physicians lead and are part of collaborative, multidisciplinary teams working together to continually innovate and transform how we deliver care. You’ll have the best of working in an academic center and large community health care system with teaching and research opportunities for those who are interested.

For those unfamiliar with this region, our location is perfect. We’re located on the I-95/Amtrak Northeast Corridor, making travel extremely easy to access cities and airports on the East Coast. The region is rich with history, diverse cultures and strong economies and living here puts you two hours from beautiful beaches and the Pocono Mountains. Our weather is temperate, the cost of living reasonable, and you’ll find excellent educational options at all levels.

Innovation

Through transformational technologies, ChristianaCare caregivers can break down barriers to access and coordinate high-value care. In 2017, ChristianaCare established the Health & Technology Innovation Center at Wilmington Hospital to bring together IT experts with caregivers and the community to create innovative solutions that connect people with their health and well-being through data and technology.

ChristianaCare earned the Most Wired designation from the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives for three straight years (2017, 2018 and 2019). Under the leadership of Randall Gaboriault, Chief Digital and Information Officer, ChristianaCare won a federal, multimillion-dollar Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Innovation Award.

Collaboration

Collaboration is key to your success as a physician. We know, and the research supports this, that highly collaborative teams have better patient outcomes. Through our values of Love and Excellence and the commitments made in the Medical Group Compact, we create a collaborative and supportive culture for our physicians and clinical teams, enabling them to deliver on the ChristianaCare Way. Physicians can count on their practice clinical and non-clinical colleagues, as well as their physician colleagues, throughout the Medical Group, to partner with them and provide timely support and advice.

Why Do We Create a Culture That Fosters Collaboration? For the Love of Health!

Physician-Led

There are distinct benefits to having a physician CEO and robust clinician leadership team. Since 1996, ChristianaCare has had physician CEOs, including current President and CEO Janice E. Nevin, M.D., M.P.H. Dr. Nevin is nationally recognized for innovation in population health and her transformative vision for a health care system built on the values of Love and Excellence. In June 2020, Dr. Nevin was recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the year’s “50 Most Influential Clinical Executives.”

At ChristianaCare, you’ll find physicians in leadership roles from the C-Suite to medical practices, as well as in clinical informatics, quality, medical education, research, caregiver wellness and population health. Physician input is valued and expected. Decision making is through a clinical lens and this perspective drives how we prioritize quality, safety and respect for the patient and caregivers. We also know physicians have diversified interests, and we do our best to support unique clinical and professional interests.
