Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains and perched on the north bank of the Columbia River sits a unique blend of Pacific Northwest flavors known as Vancouver, Washington.  From the area's natural wonders, to the region's laid back dining culture, one thing is for certain, this burgeoning suburb of the Portland Metro area has a personality of its own!  Here, PeaceHealth Medical Group is seeking outstanding Trauma/Acute Care Surgeons for Southwest Medical Center.

  • Outdoor lovers will enjoy quick access to the historic Columbia River Gorge, Pacific Ocean, Mt. Hood, Mount St. Helens, and never-ending outdoor recreation options in the Pacific Northwest.
  • The metro area has world class cuisine, wine, and beer which are mostly locally produced and sourced.
