Q: Tell us what it’s like to work in healthcare right now?
The pandemic has created a lot of change in healthcare, but also a lot of opportunity. Like hospitals across the country, we’re looking to fill hundreds of open roles. We’re excited to find the right people for the right opportunities and providing the support our team and customers need.
Q: What are some of the job opportunities available now, especially for those who aren’t trained as medical professionals?
During the pandemic, we know that job losses have had a disproportionate impact on the Black community as many held roles on the front line which were the hardest hit. For those still looking for the right opportunity, there are many roles available at North Memorial Health, and they’re not all medical positions. There are roles for nurses and ambulance team members and entry level roles on our environmental services and dietary teams. We have opportunities on our customer experience team which can be fully remote following training.
We’ll all help you learn! That’s what I love about working in healthcare—there’s so much to learn, in so many different areas. There is opportunity.
Q: Who would these roles be a good fit for?
These roles are wonderful for anyone who wants to make a positive impact on their community, at an organization that values diversity, equity and inclusion. It’s inspiring to hear the stories of new team members who come from different paths. That diversity makes our culture so wonderful.
Q: Tell us about why you continue to choose to work at North Memorial Health.
I’ve stayed with North Memorial Health for more than 20 years and have learned from many leaders who truly care about their team members’ career and their lives outside of work and are truly committed to helping us grow. They aren’t afraid to talk about hard things happening in our community and provide time and resources to help.
Our leaders lead with integrity and want to get to know you. They’ll ask, “How are you doing?” and then…. “How are you really doing?” which allows me to bring my whole self to work, always.
Q: For anyone considering a new job, what would you tell them about North Memorial Health and what sets it apart?
