BluePearl in Christiana, DE is seeking a full time boarded or residency trained criticalist to join our state-of-the-art emergency and specialty hospital. Our current critical care department has a high caseload and is a growing service. Our critical care service has highly qualified, dedicated technicians and is fully staffed with 9 ER clinicians.

Our move has brought us to the community of Christiana in New Castle County, where we serve the entire Delmarva region, including Wilmington, Newport, Stanton, and Newark.

This is a great work environment with staff and clinicians who approach patient care with enthusiasm and collaboration to ensure that the most compassionate care is achieved for patients and their families. We also work with several veterinary technician programs in the area.
