You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) in the Operating Room.
You know how to stay organized and move fast. You respond calmly in high pressure situations.
You’re generous with your thoughts, your partnership and especially your voice in the OR because your opinion matters.
You’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.

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage.

Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
