Dentist Opportunity In Saipan - The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC) is an 86-bed, Medicare-certified hospital on the island of Saipan. We are a U.S. commonwealth located in the Western Pacific, a little north of Guam. To learn more about our island and hospital, we invite you to visit our website at saipandoctors.com. We also recommend checking out the website for Marianas Visitors' Authority at www.mymarianas.com. We want to share a couple of other things about CHCC. First of all, our patients are lovely. They are appreciative, generally accepting, polite, and very grateful. Interventions available for them are less than on the mainland, but the patients are equally sick, so flexibility and a can-do attitude is a must. As for the "corporate culture," one of our physicians volunteered, "[I] enjoy working with my colleagues and hospital administration. I have never been pressured to see more patients, bill more services, or compromise good healthcare in any way. From the top down, everyone's priority is patient care."  If you want to make a difference and feel like you are contributing to something bigger, there are plenty of opportunities here.

  • Finally, life outside of the hospital gets even better. Living on Saipan is simple, but maintains some of the creature comforts that you wouldn't otherwise get on an island this size. We have quite reasonable cost of living, great restaurants, golf, water sports, diving, hiking, and easy access to travel to Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, and other Asian countries. We also have many WWII history sites and museums, along with artifacts from the war, that you can find while exploring the jungle or swimming in the lagoon.
