St. Maryâ™s Medical CenterSt. Maryâ™s Medical Center is the largest and most skilled, experienced, and capable hospital between Denver, Colorado, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Founded in 1896, St. Maryâ™s is a patient-centered, non-profit hospital and part of the SCL Health system. The hospital offers the broadest range of medical and surgical diagnostic and procedural services and is home to the highest level of acute care and clinically advanced services in the region. A responsible community citizen, St. Maryâ™s has consistently provided the largest investment in social health care and community infrastructure development since the regionâ™s founding. With nearly 350 licensed beds and over 2000 associates, St. Maryâ™s is home to the most skilled, diverse, experienced, and technologically advanced health care available to the people and communities of western Colorado and eastern Utah. St. Maryâ™s received an âœAâ Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group which announced the spring 2018 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades, focused on how safe hospitals keep their patients from errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
Benefitsare 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 spiritual well-being. To that end, weâ™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.
As an Executive, you will receive additional benefits including two times salary basic life insurance, as well as reimbursement for tuition, mobile phone, professional dues and subscriptions. We also offer financial wellness tools, retirement savings and deferred compensation plans, and an additional supplemental retirement plan for executives. To show our commitment to you and to assist with your transition into our organization, we may also offer a sign-on and relocation stipend and reimbursement when applicable.
Together weâ™ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ™ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
Weâ™ll laugh at each otherâ™s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ™ll hello and high five. Weâ™ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
Weâ™re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
