winter 2015 79 also incorporates instrumental and vocal music and has 20 student clubs focused in such areas as drama, art, auto, chess and mock trials. Nine sports are part of the mix, including football, basketball, volleyball and golf. Thanks to the infux of jobs, the school system's 1,300-plus students include newcomers—students and teachers—from all over the country, according to Superintendent Jay Ehler. He also say that almost 80 percent of Sidney graduates go on to col- lege. One is conveniently located—a branch of West- ern Nebraska Community College. As for its seemingly remote geography, the city, as Cutright points out, is not exactly isolated. Founded in 1867 by the Union Pacifc Railroad as a stop along its westbound route and named for Sidney Dillon, a company attorney, the new outpost soon hosted an Army fort built to protect the rail workers. Settlers began arriving. Among Union Pacifc ser- vices was a northbound route to the Black Hills gold felds and the feisty town of Deadwood. Today the railroad is used by companies like Bell Lumber & Pole. The city is also at the confuence of four major highways: I-80, one state and two U.S. routes. For serious medical cases, Denver hospitals are about 150 miles west, and the big city is a major venue for serious culture, major league sports and sophisticated dining. Cutright points out that serious skiers can be in heaven on the Rocky Mountain slopes near Denver. Hunting and fshing opportunities abound closer to home. When all is said and done, Wicht, the hospital recruiter, has a simple summary for today's life in Sidney: "We're a small town in the middle of nowhere in the middle of Nebraska—but the town still has that Cabela's spirit! When my doctor candidates come to visit, they can't believe how friendly everybody is. It's 'Leave it to Beaver' here, and at the same time it's progressive." l WIN Find your dream practice—and enter to win a $500 gift card—at Roberta Todrzak at 888.328.7807 or by email at Genesis Medical Center Davenport, Iowa – System Medical Director Offering Sign-On and Retention Bonuses u 502-bed medical center u The frst in the Quad Cities, and just the fourth in Iowa to achieve and retain nursing's highest honor–Magnet designation Indiana University Hospital Bloomington, Indiana – Program Medical Director u 264-bed nationally ranked hospital u Part of Indiana's most comprehensive healthcare system Regional One Health in Memphis Memphis, Tennessee – Academic Program Medical Director u One of the largest teaching sites for the Univ. of TN Health Science Center u Memphis is the 2nd largest metropolitan area in Tennessee Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas, Texas – Program Medical Director u 898-bed acute-care hospital u Desirable metropolitan area with unlimited amenities Blessing Hospital Quincy, Illinois – Program Medical Director u A member of the Blessing Health System, a not-for-proft, 340-bed facility u Largest provider in an 100-mile radius, the hospital serves 13,400+ inpatients and 245,000 outpatients annually Ashtabula County Medical Center Ashtabula, Ohio – Program Medical Director u 226-bed medical center u Affliated with Cleveland Clinic, ACMC is the largest and most advanced full-service hospital in Ashtabula County Somerset Hospital Somerset, Pennsylvania – Program Medical Director u 120-bed community facility in a beautiful small town setting u Easy access to city amenities in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, MD Come Join Our Teams.
