Essentia Health, headquartered in Duluth, Minn., is an integrated health system serving patients in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Idaho. Essentia began fully integrating operations in the summer of 2010, bringing together the resources of its member organizations – SMDC Health System, Innovis Health, Brainerd Lakes Health and the Essentia Institute of Rural Health. In 2013, Essentia was accredited as an Accountable Care Organization by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. 


Essentia Health combines the strengths and talents of 13,868 employees, including 1,500 physicians and credentialed practitioners, whose mission is to provide high quality care while making patients feel known and understood. 

Essentia Health, which includes many catholic facilities, is guided by the values of quality, hospitality, respect, justice, stewardship and teamwork. The organization delivers on its promise to be “Here With You” in 17 hospitals, 66 clinics, 5 ambulance services, eight long-term care facilities, two assisted living facilities, four independent living facilities and one research institute.

Find your calling. Essentia Health seeks employees who embrace our commitment to patient- and family-centered care in communities both large and small. We’re looking for people who are committed to making patients and their families feel known and understood. People who understand what it means to be Here with you. People who are willing to use their strengths to help others.

Essentia Health currently employs more than 11,500 people, including more than 1,500 physicians and advanced practitioners. Each employee plays a vital role in fulfilling our mission of making a healthy difference in people’s lives. And, many of our employees believe they have been “called” to do this important work. Perhaps you are one of those people. 

Essentia Health is an equal opportunity employer.



History of Essentia HealthEssentia Health is an integrated health system serving patients in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Idaho. In the summer of 2010, Essentia Health brought together the operations of SMDC Health System, Brainerd Lakes Health, Innovis Health, Essentia Community Hospitals and Clinics, and the Essentia Institute of Rural Health. Essentia Health was originally formed in January 2004 through a partnership of the Benedictine Health System and SMDC Health System. In January 2008, Innovis Health joined Essentia Health and all of the hospitals and clinics owned by the Benedictine Health System were transferred to Essentia Community Hospitals and Clinics.

Today, Essentia Health continues to seek opportunities to grow its network of physicians, healthcare providers, hospitals and clinics. By combining resources, we bring economies of scale and depth of experience to healthcare delivery in the rural communities we serve.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Essentia Health (Duluth, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Met with individuals of two levels. Job offered had different description and terms than job applied for. Concerned that significant terms would be switched from what was initially discussed. Human Resources representative was inconsistent, as several individuals were involved and no one knew who would be calling me next. There was a lack of accountability in the hiring process. Also, hiring manager used discriminatory language and examples.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Terms different than what was posted and applied for -- Concerned with company's ethics.
