WHAT WE NEED

Professional multi-taskers with a passion for caring for others.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

In a hospital, a secretary isn’t just a secretary. Yes, some of the basic skill descriptions are the same: good with computers, positive problem solver, detail-oriented and very organized. So what makes this job different? Our unit secretaries help provide compassionate, faith-based care to patients. From greeting visitors to answering call lights – this is a job that gives you the chance to take your clerical skills and focus them on a higher calling. 

 

Are you an excellent administrative assistant with the ability to maintain confidentiality? Do you love a fast-paced environment? Are you good at supporting others and anticipating needs? Do you want to use your skills to help others? If so, we need to talk. 

WHAT YOU WILL DO
  • Serve as liaison/unit representative.
  • Greet and assist patients, visitors, physicians, students, and staff contacts consulting physicians.
  • Answer call lights.
  • Place room notification (i.e. magnets, signs) for patients who are fall risks, have wounds, or on isolation precautions.
  • Transport patients.
  • Assist with patient turning and lifting.
WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED
  • Proficient computer skills
  • Professional telephone etiquette
  • Interact with others in a calm, friendly and caring manner
  • Active listening skills and empathy toward others
  • High attention to detail
  • Strong organizational and analytical skills
  • Multi-task in a fast-paced environment
  • Maintain confidentiality of sensitive information
