I just got an offer for a hospitalist position. Details are below. I wonder if it is a reasonable offer or if I need to negotiate a better deal.

Hours 7-5 except one day a week is 7-7
$140/hr -> 262000 per year (base)
Average 14-15 patients; if there are >15 patients, then there is extra pay
$7/hr quality bonus
no admissions except on the 7-7 day for the last 2-3 hours
open ICU with intensivist on site
separate code and rapid response teams
no match on 401K
no CME
benefits are ok, average

Since it is rounding only, I would be able to leave once I have completed rounding and family meetings, then take calls at home. There is full sub-specialty support.
Option to cover remote night call for $500 per night
The location is in a major city in California, so the cost of living is a bit high

Another thing to consider is if I decide to rotate and cover different hospitals, then the hourly rate goes to $150/hour.
