Job Status:






You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Family Health Educator.




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




You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.




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.








In this role, you will have the opportunity to provide education to members of the community who are currently pregnant or who have already delivered along with their infants or children.




Good Samaritan Medical Center was the first hospital in Colorado to be named Baby-Friendly, a designation given by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF to hospitals that have created the best possible environment for breastfeeding.  Our Center for Childbirth, a safe and secure unit, offers a warm and comforting environment with private rooms and home-like amenities, including:



  • Aromatherapy
  • Birthing Balls
  • Room Service
  • Soaking Tub
  • TV & DVD Player



Our team of healthcare professionals provide a personalized experience to our patients and babies.   Our nurses are caring, compassionate and highly skilled and many have completed advanced training and hold labor and delivery certifications.




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.








Together well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well honor each others dignity and surpass the standards we set. Well encourage joy, demand safety 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.
