Description:

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Cardiovascular Sonographer.

 

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 equally comfortable with performing a variety of ultrasound procedures, monitoring equipment for reliability and safety, and documenting/communicating patient-related information thoroughly and accurately.

 

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.

 

Our Cath Lab has the highest quality equipment and digital technology, offering both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and interventional procedures.  We use a holistic approach to our heart care as an Accredited Chest Pain Center and our best practices reduce the time we take treating patients during the critical early stages of a heart attack.  Less than one in five Colorado hospitals is able to offer this level of expertise when treating patients with symptoms of a heart attack.

 

We pride ourselves in being ahead of the curve, as we were the first hospital in Colorado and one of the first in the nation to offer a minimally-invasive procedure to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the upper leg as well as being one of the first facilities in the United States to have the new Azurion imaging system installed in our Cath Lab.  We are proud to be an accredited Chest Pain Center, a Primary Stroke Center, and a Level III Trauma Center.

 

Platte Valley Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, 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, 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 honor each others dignity and surpass the standards we set. 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.

 

Were proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
