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.
