Echocardiography Professionals: At the heart of our Cardiac program

Dr. Omosalewa Adewale, Medical Director of Adult Cardiac Imaging, describes the TotalHEART Care program at Memorial Healthcare System as “a one-stop-shop for the health of the heart.”

“We are concerned with how the heart pumps, its rhythm and arterial flow. Echocardiography is at the heart of all cardiac care,” she states. “Echo is essential for diagnosis, treatment planning and prognostication. Working with us will keep you at the cutting-edge of this field.”

“For one, Memorial has one of the busiest ECMO program in all of South Florida. We have also just added the Heartmate III left ventricle assist device, and are expanding our multi-organ transplant program. If someone needs a heart transplant and another solid organ, like a kidney, we can do that here. Our percutaneous valve therapies program is also growing.”

“If you are interested in a career – not just a job – at a place where we are constantly doing new things, and where you’ll have the opportunity to advance your skills in order to gain ACS certification or other credentials, that place is Memorial. You will always be growing, as we develop new programs and Centers of Excellence. Equally important, you will be a valued contributor within a dynamic team setting, where your input will be heard,” Dr. Adewale adds.

The echocardiography program at Memorial currently has opportunities for dedicated, well-trained, hard-working, and passionate professionals for these key positions: Adult Echocardiography Technical Director, Adult Cardiac Sonographers/Echocardiography Technologists, Manager of Pediatric Echocardiography, and Pediatric Cardiac Sonographers/Echocardiography Technologists.

CVOR Nurses & Surgical Technologists: Advancing the practice of cardiac care.

Memorial Healthcare System’s TotalHEART Care program serves an entire population of pediatrics, adolescents and adults. We perform everything from the most delicate neonatal procedures to heart transplants and more.

“If you are looking for a position where you get to help others, while being part of a highly motivated and dynamic practice, Memorial is for you,” says Dr. Frank Scholl, Chief of Pediatric & Congenital Heart Surgery and Surgical Director of Pediatric Heart Transplant. “We are not only practicing advancements in cardiac care, we are developing them as well.”

Of course, it takes a highly skilled professional to work in the CVOR alongside surgeons like Dr. Scholl and his adult practice peers. While the physiology and anatomy of pediatric and adult congenital heart disease and adult acquired heart disease are entirely different, there are shared characteristics of success at Memorial.

“The need here is for dedicated, hardworking CVOR Nurses and Surgical Technologists with integrity,” Dr. Scholl says. “People who are caring and respectful of human life, who want to work in an integrative and supportive environment. Our team dynamic is notable, as is our culture of safety and commitment to patient –and family-centered care. Also, Nurses and Surgical Technologists are assigned to CVOR teams that work together on a daily basis – and work with a core group of cardiac surgeons and cardiac anesthesiologists – which helps to further improve patient care.”

We seek to hire experienced professionals who are driven to learn and grow into opportunities of increased complexity. In fact, CVOR RNs may even have the chance to participate in clinical and translational research as they advance their skills.

Welcome to Memorial’s Family Birthplace

More than 400 families a month trust our L&D nurses for care.

Christine Shepherd, Labor and Delivery Nurse Manager, joined Memorial Regional Hospital in November 2016. What she found was an organization of enormous size and scope, along with the opportunity to bring other nurses into a unique practice model.

“I can honestly tell you that I’ve never had as much support from leadership as I do here. Nurses are encouraged to share their suggestions about patient care and to grow their skills into new areas. This is especially important as acuities increase and the Family Birthplace model evolves,” Shepherd says.

Labor and Delivery nurses who are newly hired at Memorial have the opportunity to cross-train as part of the larger Family Birthplace team. Nurses are supported by a Perinatal Navigator, Nurse Clinician and Clinical Nurse Specialist. New L&D nurses participate in a six-month Perinatal Education Program under the guidance of a preceptor for both didactic and hands-on learning.

“As we grow and expand, and as technology evolves, it’s important for nurses to be open to new ways of taking care of patients. We believe that nurses are better able to add value to the organization – and to their own careers – when they are able to have new experiences within the Family Birthplace,” stresses Shepherd. “We want all nurses at Memorial – L&D and otherwise – to be able to practice at the top of their license.”

If you’re an L&D nurse who wants to do more with your career, this is the place to do it. Learn more about our opportunities online now.

The Importance of Learning and Growth

Memorial Healthcare System embraces a service vision grounded in “Deeper Caring. Smarter Healthcare.” Today, I’d like to focus on the “Smarter Healthcare” that we promise to our patients and their families.

“Smarter Healthcare” means safety, quality, efficiency and technology. It also means having a team that can execute on all of those factors, while building their own skills and knowledge. Career growth is a big part of The Memorial Experience and should be expected of everyone who joins our organization, regardless of your position or professional background.

In this edition of our e-newsletter, education and learning take center stage. You will read how Memorial nurses are encouraged to practice at the top of the license, and how PTs have opportunities to grow their knowledge and expand their horizons by floating throughout the system, participating on committees and more.

Our commitment to “Smarter Healthcare” might manifest differently depending on who you are and where you work within our system. However, you can be certain that we take your learning and growth seriously.

I invite you to find out how you can take your career to the next level here at Memorial, one of the nation’s leading and largest not-for-profit health systems.
