SCL Health - Grand Junction - CO Careers Responsibilities




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


Your compassion is tangible: whether your patient is 18 or 85, they 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.


Youâ??re 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.



We are happy to offer up to $30,000 in relocation and hiring incentives to full time, experienced RNs to help you begin your career with us.


St. Maryâ??s Medical Center is home to twelve state-of-the-art surgical suites, and two DaVinci Robots, with a Cardiovascular Hybrid OR. We are a Level II Trauma Center which functions more like a Level I, because we are the largest, most specialized hospital between Denver and Salt Lake City.  Our service lines include:  Bariatrics, Robotics, General Surgery, Orthopedics including Ortho-Trauma and Ortho-Spine, Neuro-surgery, OB-GYN, Cardiovascular and Thoracic (including open heart), ENT, Plastics, Pediatrics, and Urology. We pride ourselves in providing the finest, most advanced, personalized patient care in Western Colorado.


St. Maryâ??s Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 346-bed regional medical center is in Grand Junction, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our mission is to bring health and hope to 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, weâ??ve 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 weâ??ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ??ll honor each otherâ??s dignity and surpass the standards we set. Weâ??ll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.


Weâ??ll laugh at each otherâ??s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ??ll hello and high five. Weâ??ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.


Weâ??re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
