Description:

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Hospital Chaplain.

 

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

 

Youre generous with your compassion, your empathy and especially your ability to listen to others as you work with associates, patients and their families during especially challenging times.

 

Youre 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.

 

We are happy to offer per diem opportunities to allow for a more flexible schedule and to gain additional experience, to help you begin your career with us.

 

Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital provides comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Dating back to 1905, we are proud of the rich history and inspiring mission our hospital has embodied for over 110 years.

 

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, weve 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 well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.

 

Well laugh at each others jokes (even the bad ones). Well hello and high five. Well celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
