Job Description

At SSM Health, we know the healing power of presence begins with compassionate employees like you. As a health care professional, you've chosen a career where patients matter-a lot. Our Mission and Values put the patient first and place you in a position to improve each day. We refer to our Nursing Assistants and Techs as Clinical Partners because these roles both are integral to delivering exceptional care.

As a Clinical Partner, you will learn ways to adapt care and adjust treatment plans for patients' evolving needs. As an advocate for each patient, you may comfort these vulnerable people and their families, encourage them to improve, and fulfill other roles as needed. The work can be demanding and emotionally rewarding.

In return, you can expect a work environment where:

* Clinical Partners feel valued, respected and free to express themselves;
* Each employee finds meaning in work, leveraging skills and talents toward a greater purpose;
* Teamwork and collaboration is encouraged, while management is supportive.

If you're a patient advocate first…

If you listen and respond with great care…

If the needs, wants, and goals of each patient matter to you…

Then we'd love to learn more! Please fill out your application today.

Join a network of Clinical Partners just as kind and powerful as you.

Under supervision and in collaboration with other health care professionals, assist in performing a variety of nursing care services for patients.
