Dignity Health Medical Group – Arizona (DHMG), based in Phoenix, seeks applications and nominations for an accomplished leader to serve as Chair, Department of OB/GYN and Women’s Health. DHMG, an employed, multidisciplinary, and academic physician group with over 200 providers and 500 staff, is currently underway in a transformational expansion of its clinical, medical education, and research programs. Dignity Health Arizona is affiliated with Creighton University School of Medicine, which is currently building a new, $150m, 200,000 sq. ft. four-year medical school and health science campus in downtown Phoenix.  

The growing Department of OB/GYN and Women’s Health is currently comprised of 22 faculty: 14 OB/GYN, four Maternal-Fetal Medicine, three Pelvic Pain, and one Gynecologic Oncologist. DHMG, along with Valleywise Health (a comprehensive public healthcare system serving Maricopa County), co-sponsors the largest OB/GYN residency program in Arizona with nine new Residents per year; in total, 36 OB/GYN residents rotate through DHMG / Dignity Health Arizona each year. The Academic Chair resides within Valleywise while the Program Director is employed by DHMG.   DHMG physicians provide services across Dignity Health Arizona’s 24 practice sites and other affiliated hospitals.
