Memorial Healthcare System Hosts Koinonia Community Job Fair
A message from Wendy Willis-Herrera, Administrative Director of Talent Acquisition

Community Job Fair

Last month, our team came together to host our second community job fair, which took place at Koinonia Worship Center. It was wonderful to see the amazing turnout!

We were seeking candidates for nine different roles – Patient Financial Service Representative, Patient Transporter, Environmental Services Technician, Food Service Worker, Host, Cook, Patient Care Associate, Community Youth Counselor, and Medical Assistant – and we are delighted that we had over 100 attendees. We were able to conduct on-site interviews and extend 12 on the spot job offers. 47 attendees proceeded to peer interviews.

It was great to see the collaboration between our Talent Acquisition, Community Youth Services, and Diversity Equity & Inclusion teams, and to have been able to provide job opportunities to people within our community. Some of our attendees were former Memorial patients or had family members who received care from our team, and it was really rewarding to see firsthand how we’re making an impact.

Shadasia Cuvilly, who was hired for a Medical Assistant position, shared her experience. “The hiring event was a great success. I have already started working at the Primary Care facility on Pembroke Road. All the new employee trainings and on-site trainings I received prepared me for my role here as a Medical Assistant. I am most excited to be a part of the exceptional family- and patient-centered care that Memorial promotes.”

From the care we provide to the career opportunities we offer, we’re passionate about securing a better future for our community. We’re committed to making heartfelt connections as we strive to elevate the lives of everyone who walks through our doors.

We’re excited to announce our next community job fair this fall, and we can’t wait to welcome more future Memorial employees! Stay tuned for more details.

Memorial Healthcare System is proud to offer new pay rates, retirement plans, and a GED course

Be where you are valued
I am excited to announce that we are improving more of the benefits we offer to our employees. In addition to medical, dental, and vision insurance, paid time off, education benefits, employee discounts, and more, we also offer a variety of retirement contribution plans to help our teammates plan for the future.

Our teammates have created a welcoming, caring, and supportive culture that sets us apart. Our new Employer Brand highlights how MHS enhances and elevates our healthcare system every day through preparing our caregivers for the future by providing:

  • A 403(b) Plan which currently allows you to save towards your retirement on a pre-tax basis as well as a Roth basis starting in January 2024. MHS will match employee contributions up to the first 5% based off years of service.
  • MHS provides a 401(a) plan, which is a fully funded MHS contribution that will increase in the 2024 Plan year from 2.5% to 3% of base compensation.
  • MHS also offers a 457(b) Deferred Compensation plan which allows employees to defer additional compensation on a pretax basis, and new for 2024 – a Roth option.

Memorial is dedicated to improving and maintaining the body, mind, and spirit of our employees. That’s why we have increased the Memorial Minimum wage from $15 to $16 an hour for regular and per diem employees. This increased wage is effective June 4, 2023 and will impact approximately 2,000 employees. It also increases the value of benefits, such as paid leave, disability leave, the contributions made by Memorial to retirement plans, and more! By investing in our employees, we are investing in their families, and ultimately the community we live and serve in.

We have partnered with Broward College to support employees who are preparing to take the GED (high school equivalency diploma) test. Beginning with the Fall 2023 semester, employees will be able to attend an eight-week course online (with in-person orientation as well as in-person pre- and post-tests at Broward College) at their work site or at home with morning and evening options available.

Memorial Healthcare System truly wants every one of our employees to feel accepted, supported, and valued as part of our warm, welcoming family. That’s why we’ve been working on our retirement plan offerings – and why we’re offering new, improved pay rates.
