Job Status:






You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Operating Room Assistant.




You know how to stay organized and move fast. You respond calmly in high pressure situations.




Youre generous with your thoughts, your partnership and especially your voice in the OR because your opinion matters.




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.








Our Operating Room boasts 14 surgical suites with one designated cystoscopy room. We perform all types of surgical cases except open heart and transplants. We have DaVinci robotics on-site and we also perform deep brain stimulation surgeries.




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 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.
