Information For Job Seekers: Recruitment and Hiring During COVID-19

During these uncertain times, providing a safe, exceptional hiring experience remains a top priority.

Are Providence St. Joseph Health and their family of organizations still hiring?

Yes. We have an urgent need for clinical and non-clinical workers to care for our patients. We are actively recruiting across all regions and locations for temporary, part-time and full-time positions while taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our candidates, patients, caregivers and communities.

Are job interviews still happening?

Yes. To minimize risk, we now offer virtual interviews as an alternative to in-person interviews across all of our regions and locations.

Is travel still allowed for out-of-area applicants?

No. However, we are scheduling virtual interviews for all candidates needing to travel. Travel for interviews is not allowed until further notice.

Are new employee/caregiver orientations still happening?

Yes. For the safety of our new and current caregivers, we are launching a virtual New Caregiver Orientation experience effective March 30, 2020. This experience will welcome new caregivers and ensure they have all the required information, including knowledge of our organizations' safety and regulatory procedures. Our Promise is to “Know Me, Care for Me, Ease My Way,” and we are committed to this promise during virtual orientation.

What are you doing to keep your employees/caregivers safe?

We need to keep our caregivers safe, so they can safely care for our patients. Facing a massive national shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) to fight COVID-19, we sought innovative solutions from our teams and communities. Due to initiatives like the  100 Million Mask Challenge , we are pleased to announce that we are moving to the practice of “universal masking.” This means, starting with our hardest-hit communities, we will supply a medical-grade mask to every caregiver who works in a clinical setting at the beginning of each shift. We are committed to universal masking in our most affected communities for as long as feasible.

How are you supporting your employees/caregivers through these difficult and unprecedented times?

We’re listening to our people. We know many of our caregivers and their family members are experiencing stress and anxiety due to the increased burden of COVID-19. We have a range of resources that can support their emotional needs, free of charge. We're also providing added benefits for child care, emergency loans and more. Learn more  here .

Where can I learn more about Providence St. Joseph Health's COVID-19 response measures?

Our Commitment Goes Beyond Words

At Swedish, our commitment is more than something we strive for. It's reflected in everything we do. It's part of who we are, and it begins with our dedication to our patients and the health of our region.

Swedish is committed to creating a culture that values patient safety above all else. This is evidenced in the way we provide ongoing training to our staff of more than 10,000 employees, with an emphasis on error prevention tools, techniques for clear communication, and team support exercises.

We owe much of the continued growth of our health system to our ongoing initiative to promote sustainability at every level of our organization.

Our No. 1 priority: Quality Care and Patient Safety

Since our founding in 1910, Swedish has been at the forefront of patient safety and care quality. When founder Dr. Nils Johanson arrived in Seattle more than a century ago, he quickly discovered there were no hospitals that lived up to his standards for care quality and sterile technique. And so he created one. Dr. Johanson's legacy and leadership live on today at Swedish, where our highest priority continues to be on quality and safety for every patient. Learn more about our quality and safety .

An Excellent Setting for Exceptional Work

At Swedish, we're not only committed to being the best place to receive care, but also to being the best place to work.

Since our founding more than 100 years ago, Swedish has grown into the Greater Seattle area's largest, most comprehensive medical system. We think we've also become the best hospital to work for in the Pacific Northwest.

We are proud to foster a vibrant, supportive work environment, with individualized orientation, continuing education and ongoing opportunities for professional advancement. We also reward our people with generous compensation and benefits.

When you work at Swedish, you work alongside some of the most skilled and dedicated professionals in health care. You also work in one of the most desirable areas in the country, in the heart of the Northwest and at the leading edge of medicine.

We Do Our Best Work by Working Together

The people of Swedish are motivated by shared values and professional standards to do our best, not just for our patients, but for each other as well.

Together, we create a culture that values quality on behalf of the patient and empowers staff to take action. You only need to look as far as the patient-safety huddles that take place daily at our campuses to alert team members to potential safety issues, and how they make immediate course corrections. It quickly becomes evident that Swedish is truly a unique organization.

Teamwork is the way we work at Swedish. We are committed to working together to achieve our mission of high quality and compassionate care.

Our Nonprofit Mission

Improve the health and well-being of each person we serve.

Our Vision

Health for a Better World.
