Job Status:


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Nurse Director in the Emergency Department for Good Samaritan Medical Center.


Youre equally strong at connecting with your team and other members of leadership, have a passion for patient experience and improvement through operational efficiency.


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.




As a Level II Trauma Center Emergency Department, we average 42,000 visits per year.  This position reports directly to the CNO and has one Nurse Manager and 82 FTEs.


Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. At our 234-bed Level II Trauma Center, our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Were especially proud of our people, who helped make us one of Americas 100 Best Hospitals according to Healthgrades.


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.


As a Director, you would receive additional benefits including reimbursement for tuition, cell phone, professional dues and subscriptions. To show our commitment to you and to assist with your transition into our organization, we may also offer a sign-on or retention bonus and relocation assistance when applicable.


With this position, you are eligible to participate in the At Risk Compensation (ARC) Plan. This plan enables SCL Health to provide leaders with an additional performance compensation opportunity. The ARC Award opportunities are calculated as a percentage of your base salary. Awards are paid out based on attainment of selected SCL Health Board-approved goals.




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.


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