RRT/Registered Respiratory Therapist (nights)

Job Code: 950128

LOCATION:  Stark County (OH)

Outstanding opportunity to join one of the largest independent pediatric hospitals in the U.S  serving nearly 900,000 patient visits per year through a large network of locations offering primary and specialty care! Seeking people who are committed to fostering a diverse environment in which patients, family and staff from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and personal experiences are welcomed, included and can thrive.

Enjoy up to a $5,000 sign on bonus (with a two year commitment) and work full time on three-12 hour shifts a week (36 hours/week — primarily NIGHT shift), with rotating holidays and weekends.

Respiratory Therapists, physicians and nurses come together to form efficient, empowered teams. Respiratory Therapists cover the NICU, PICU, ER, transport, burn and other patient care units throughout our hospitals. They also attend high-risk deliveries and are part of the transport team. The ability to float as necessary is expected, as is always being on top of your game. Because catching things quickly is imperative in respiratory care, superior evaluation skills, a calming nature and the ability to clearly explain procedures that can cause anxiety for children and their families are key. With respiratory care as your focus, you’ll find a diverse patient population and settings that require quick thinking. There’s also the delicate nature of the work—tending to preemies that are as small as two pounds.

Schedule:  36 Hours/Week; (3) 12 hour shifts a week; primarily NIGHT shift; Rotating Holidays and Weekends
