Embracing the Flexibility of Remote Work in Healthcare

In recent years, the trend of remote work has gained significant momentum across various industries, completely revolutionizing the idea that work isn’t always where someone goes but what someone does. While remote work has become common in many sectors, it remains relatively rare in the healthcare field. In line with our mission to transform radiology through medical imaging excellence, we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our patient and physician experiences at Desert Radiology. 

“As we continue to recruit and retain the best of the best, and innovate the quality of healthcare within our community, we also must look for ways to innovate our operations,” said Matthew Grimes, Chief Operating Officer at Desert Radiology. “Understanding the wants and needs of our workforce, both present and future, only makes Desert Radiology a more desirable place to work.”

Our latest effort reimagines how, and where, our Diagnostic Radiologists serve the Las Vegas community with an entirely new, and remote, role.

A Transformative Role 

As we continue to recruit and retain the best of the best in radiology to serve the Las Vegas community, everything traditional about a Diagnostic Radiologist role went out the window. 

The bulk of the work a Diagnostic Radiologist is tasked with is reading and interpreting a range of general modalities, including MR, CT, Ultrasound, plain films and injections–all things that can be successfully accomplished outside of the walls of an imagining center. This allows radiologists to work remotely while still being part of a progressive 90-physician group, interpreting studies and procedures performed across 12 hospitals and 10 imaging centers. By leveraging state-of-the-art equipment and a unified PACS worklist, Desert Radiology ensures that radiologists can provide exceptional services without being physically present at the healthcare facilities.

Even more unique than the remote aspect of this role is the work/life balance it promotes. The 7 on/14 off evening remote position not only allows healthcare professionals to work from the comfort of their homes but also provides an unparalleled level of flexibility with 14 consecutive days off. This format also increases the speed in which images can be viewed and interpreted by radiologists, providing round-the-clock movement on all caseloads.

Work-Life Balance at Its Best 

Our practice values work-life balance and understands the importance of allowing physicians to recharge and enjoy their personal lives. With the 7 on/14 off schedule, radiologists can fully immerse themselves in their personal life, spending more quality time with loved ones, and pursuing personal interests and hobbies. This extended duration between shifts provides an incredible opportunity to explore the vibrant city of Las Vegas, known for its dining, entertainment, nightlife, and outdoor activities. From world-class golf and tennis to cycling, running, hiking, boating, and skiing, Las Vegas offers a multitude of experiences to suit every interest.

The remote work revolution has reached the healthcare sector, offering unprecedented flexibility to radiology professionals. Evening remote positions for Diagnostic Radiologists breaks the traditional mold, providing an exceptional opportunity to balance work and personal life. By embracing remote work, Desert Radiology can attracts top talent from all over the United States and help to redefines what it means to be a healthcare professional in the modern world.

If you are ready to embark on a transformative journey and experience the benefits of remote work in the healthcare field, Desert Radiology might be the perfect fit for you.
