Children's Health – Why Work For Us?

undefined

For a century, Children’s has been piloted by strong, forward-thinking leaders with an unwavering focus on our mission – to make life better for children. Their dedication and commitment have played a major role in making us who we are today: counted among the elite pediatric hospitals in the nation.

Children’s Medical Center of Dallas – our system’s main campus located in the heart of Dallas – is home to the only academic healthcare system in North Texas dedicated exclusively to the comprehensive care of children. We’ve been recognized among the top children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report for six consecutive years, and were the first pediatric hospital in Dallas designated as a Level I Trauma Center.

Whether you’re an experienced professional, a college student or high school graduate, you’ll find a wealth of career opportunities with Children’s, and the level of career support and encouragement you’d expect of a healthcare leader. Since 1913, the mission of Children’s Medical Center has been to make life better for children. Now, it’s time to make life better for you.

Dallas is a leader in business and innovation, as well as a top visitor destination in Texas. The city continues to build on its strengths – friendly people, entrepreneurial spirit, flair for style and innovation, mild climate, accessibility and outstanding quality of life.

The ninth-largest city in the nation with 1.2 million residents is home to 18 Fortune 500 companies and has the third busiest airport in the world. Combined with Fort Worth, Dallas forms the fourth largest metropolitan area, offering diversity in its population and opportunities.

Dallas is on the international map with bold new architectural and civic projects, and a $15 billion city-wide revitalization. The city boasts the largest urban arts district in the United States, where residents enjoy the most sought-after homegrown restaurants, bars, shops and galleries, according to the New York Times.

The city is serious about sports and recreation – Dallas is the only city in the southwest that is home to five professional sports teams, including the Mavericks, Rangers and Cowboys. We take our personal fitness seriously, too, with a 3.5-mil run/bike trail in the heart of downtown, and more than 250 golf courses.

Within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the DART public transportation system has a stop at the hospital for easy access for our residents and faculty.

    Pros

    Obviously working for a system like Children's is an honor, and a privilege. The people are great, the facility is beautiful and you are making life better for children! Just thinking about my time there makes me proud. The benefits are great, and the PTO is plentiful.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of flexibility (ie working from home) for a lot of administrative departments - even though many of the other big systems in the area allow their employees to so. There is A LOT of work to be done, and sometimes employees get overwhelmed but overall, it's not bad. Employees have to park a little far away too.

    Advice to Management

    Start finding ways to give a little more autonomy with the flexibility (they'll go to other systems to get it!) otherwise - keep doing what you're soinf!
