Job Description:

Overview

CHI Mercy Health offers the unique opportunity to grow professionally in a supportive, highly rewarding work environment and to satisfy your soul in the surroundings of a breathtakingly beautiful natural setting. More than 100 years after the founding of our organization, the core values - Compassion, Inclusion, Integrity, Excellence and Collaboration - that guide our interactions with our patients and each other remain the same. In the welcoming embrace of these nurturing communities, you will feel immediately at home

Roseburg is located on Interstate 5 in Southern Oregon's scenic Douglas County. The community is nestled in a lush, forested region known as the 100 Valleys of the Umpqua.

In many places, you'll find it hard to maintain a healthy work-life/personal-life balance because the pace of one is indistinguishable from the other. Not here. Life never stops here, but it slows to an easy, welcome pace. A traffic jam means you missed the yellow and have to wait for the next green. A terrible parking space is the one across from the restaurant, instead of in front of it. And the three words you may never hear are, "Wow, that's expensive." Easy is the best way to describe life here. Hard-to-beat works too.
