Our current team of infectious disease (ID) physicians sees both inpatients and outpatients with a variety of medical conditions including HIV, tick-borne diseases, cancer-related complications, and occasional tropical and travel-related diseases. While the practice is based out of a community hospital, we offer modern therapies such as fecal microbial transplantation. HIV care supported by a local HIV support organization with Ryan White funding.  We are also proud that we were one of the first hospitals in the country to use UV light to try to combat hospital-associated infections. Our ICU is staffed by intensivists, with a significantly lower mortality than the national average. One provider on our ID team also chairs the well-regarded multi-departmental Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee, and the candidate would be expected to participate in those activities.
