A Message from K. Scott Wester, FACHE

I’m excited to introduce myself to all job seekers interested in career opportunities at Memorial Healthcare System.

Personally, I am thrilled to have the chance to be part of such an extraordinary team and dynamic organization. I chose Memorial for my career for the same reasons you might:

  • strong culture of connectedness
  • clinical depth and diversity of services
  • a stellar reputation earned over nearly 70 years
  • leadership in safety, quality and service
  • putting patients and families first in all we do

I’ve joined #teamMHSflorida with 30 years of experience and a commitment to elevating the Memorial pillars of excellence — Safety, Quality, Service, People, Finance, Growth and Community. I look forward to a bright future as we seek to expand Memorial’s presence in South Florida and beyond.

Working here is an opportunity to be at your best within a supportive environment where we take care of one another. Our new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative launched in January 2021, as a way to further enhance the Memorial culture.

This commitment to DEI ensures that staff, patients and our community are treated equitably and feel a sense of belonging. We also secured Memorial’s first Healthcare Equality Index for Memorial Regional Hospital and continue to reach out to communities in need as a way to champion this work.

In addition, Memorial conducts an employee engagement survey semi-annually. Our most recent survey was conducted in September – October 2022. Over 11,000 employees (including employed physicians) took the survey and entrusted us with their feedback. Our engagement score was 4.34 (out of 5) — the highest it has ever been, including pre-COVID. This score puts us in the 98th percentile of healthcare organizations in the country. The survey further confirmed that our employees feel connected to our mission and are proud to tell people they work for Memorial.

I invite you — whether you have decades of experience, are new in your career or somewhere in between — to join our winning team and to search our jobs and apply online.
