York, Pennsylvania, USA – April 24, 2013: A beautiful, sunny spring afternoon on Continental Square in York, Pennsylvania (Market and George Streets).

Abraham Lincoln slept here!

If you are experienced in robotics and possess leadership skills befitting a great leader, then you’ll want to sleep in this East Coast metro too. In fact, you’ll want to settle right into York, Pennsylvania, where you’ll earn a three-year guaranteed $500K+ base salary as you help build Wellspan Health’s new urology department.

This position offers access to four robots and the opportunity to teach and collaborate in clinical research with Johns Hopkins. With the new $45 million expansion of the York Cancer Center, oncology skills are a plus. You’ll keep busy with the hefty referral base in York’s catchment area of 1 million. Employed at this 580-bed, trauma level 1 hospital, you’ll split call 1:4 and enjoy what Lincoln himself never had:

  • Educational loan repayment of up to $80K
  • A signing bonus of $30K
  • Full relocation coverage
  • 5 weeks of scheduled time off
  • A $3K CME stipend

If Lincoln could visit this East Coast metro today, he would be proud to find that its Colonial–era architecture still gives charm to one of the first capitals of the United States. He enjoyed the theater and would absolutely love York’s Appell Center for the Performing Arts, a state-of-the art venue for national tours and the home of the York Symphony Orchestra. 

York County boasts one of only four Harley-Davidson factories in the U.S. Lincoln had to take the train, but now visitors can travel by motorcycle to the annual York Bike Week. The old railway provides a stop for them to stretch their legs—the York County Heritage Rail Trail, great for jogging and cycling, runs for 21 miles from downtown York to the Mason-Dixon line. Or they may stop along the way at seventeen family-owned wineries along the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail. 

The heart of downtown York is a collection of independent shops, craft breweries, and Central Market, an indoor farmers’ market. You’ll find 200 taps and over 50 places to eat within one square mile. Sports fans enjoy York’s minor league baseball team and the athletics of York College of Pennsylvania and Penn State York.

Cost of living in York is 15% below the national average and well under that of the nearby communities across the Maryland-Pennsylvania border. Public schools are well-rated. The 11 county parks and 3 state parks in the area make York a beautiful and active place to raise a family. 

York is 35 minutes from Harrisburg, less than an hour from Baltimore, and 1 hour and 45 minutes from Philadelphia. It is also under 45 minutes from Hersheypark, the 121-acre amusement park that prides itself on being the “cleanest and greenest” in the U.S. 

“I will prepare, and someday my chance will come,” Lincoln once said. If you are a great leader with sharp robotics skills, then your chance is now. Call Marty at 512-422-6766 or send your CV to marty@urologyrecruiting.com for more information.
