You.


 


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Registered Nurse.


 


You know how to stay organized and move fast. You respond calmly in high pressure situations.


 


You’re generous with your thoughts, your partnerships, and especially your passion for patient care.


 


You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.


 


Us.


 


Our heart and vascular team takes an evidence-based practice approach to diagnosing and treating a wide variety of conditions, including: arrhythmia and heart rhythm disorders, Afib, congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart attack, heart failure and vascular and arterial disease.  Our RNs work in tandem with our physicians to provide care that is truly tailored to our patients’ needs.  We’ve earned a number of data-backed awards for heart care thanks to our high standards of performance.  We are active and award-winning members of a number of American College of Cardiology registries, which helps us improve patient outcomes and lower the cost of care.  We are proud to be:


 



  • One of the first hospitals in the state to earn Chest Pain Center designation

  • An ACTION Registry ® - GWTG ™ Performance Achievement Award winner


 


Our Electrophysiology (EP) lab is one of the newest labs in Boulder County and the second EP lab in the north metropolitan area.  Our lab allows us to offer the most advanced treatments for Afib and other heart rhythm disorders.  Our lab includes the newest technology, such as:


 



  • A robotic x-ray system

  • Latest 3D mapping technology

  • Peripheral vascular diagnostic and interventional treatments


 


We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Cardiovascular Center of Excellence, a Primary Stroke Center, and a Level II Trauma Center.


 


Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. At our 234-bed Level II Trauma Center, our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. We’re especially proud of our people, who helped make us one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals according to Healthgrades.


 


Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.


 


We.


 


Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.


 


We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.


 


We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
