You.


 


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Step Down Medical Surgical & Telemetry Registered Nurse.


 


Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.


 


You know how to stay organized and move fast.  You thrive in fast-paced environments.


 


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 Med Surg & Telemetry unit compassionately cares for a wide variety of medical patients (CHF, COPD, Sepsis etc.), post-surgical patients, patients with cardiac ailments as well as geriatric patients.  We always focus on putting our patients first, which is evident through our hourly rounding, bedside reports, and manageable nurse-to-patient ratios.  We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center with an advanced telemetry monitoring system, a Primary Stroke Center, and a Level III Trauma Center.


 


Platte Valley Medical Center is a partner of SCL Health which is a nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 98-bed community hospital is proud to offer comprehensive, integrated care focused on holistic health. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.


 


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.
