Iredell Health System (IHS) will host a major hiring event on Tuesday,
January 24, as the award-winning healthcare provider seeks to grow in
2017. IHS employs more than 1,600 people and includes Iredell Memorial
Hospital, the largest and only non-profit hospital in Iredell County.
“We are setting ambitious goals for this event because we want to
find the right candidates to join our team,” said Human Resources
Director Julie Parker. “Iredell Health System is committed to providing
excellent care and this is a great place to work and grow in a career.”
Candidates attending the event at the Statesville Civic Center will be
able to discuss career opportunities with members of the IHS leadership
team, with some interviews conducted on the spot. Representatives will
be ready to make offers to qualified candidates, including RNs, LPNs,
and CNAs. IHS is also looking for medical office assistants, environmental
services staff, and clerical staff. Those hired for qualifying positions
can receive signing bonuses up to $5,000. There will also be light refreshments
and drawings for prizes.
“The new year brings new opportunities,” said Parker. “We
are especially open to meeting with new graduates and professionals and
showing them what Iredell Health System has to offer.”
Along with competitive salaries and benefits, IHS invests in its employees,
providing tuition assistance and help with career advancement. The Iredell
Memorial Hospital Institute for Nursing Excellence helps to cover the
costs of specialty certifications, re-certifications, nurse leadership
development, and more.
Nursing graduates also have a unique opportunity for professional development
at IHS through the RISE program (Residency for Iredell Nurses Soaring
to Excellence). RISE consists of clinical and classroom training and weekly
meetings with key nursing leaders. It is designed to encourage and assist
the new RN graduate to apply effective decision-making skills related
to clinical judgment and performance.
“This is more than just a place to work,” said Parker. “Iredell
Health System is family. I encourage anyone who is compassionate, driven,
and ready to learn to come to this event and see how Iredell Health System
can open doors for you.”
