MultiCare Health System – Why Work For Us?

WHY WORK FOR MULTICARE?Meet Sonya

The reasons to work at MultiCare are as unique as the people who do. Here you'll find the challenges you seek, in the settings you prefer, with schedules to fit your life.

As one of America's "10 Best Integrated Healthcare Systems," MultiCare includes a fast-paced trauma center, four community hospitals, a pediatric hospital, home health, hospice and many neighborhood clinics. Employees also appreciate that we are a locally based not-for-profit system.

If you're motivated by career advancement, you'll appreciate our world-class employee education programs. If you love to work with technology, you'll find plenty of it here. And, of course, you can expect competitive pay and benefits.

And, most of all, you'll get to work with a diverse, talented team of employees who share our commitment to quality patient care.

SCHEDULING TO FIT YOUR LIFE

Health care isn’t a 9-to-5 career. As a 24/7 employer, MultiCare offers day, evening, night and weekend shifts ranging from on-call to full-time.

Shifts vary by department and location. Across our system, you’ll find 8-, 10- and 12-hour shifts. Or, choose an on-call position with the flexibility to fit work around your other priorities.

PROVIDER SERVICES

At MultiCare, Provider careers are both challenging and rewarding. As a MultiCare employee, you’ll find everything you need to excel in your job: outstanding facilities and resources, exceptional teammates, and a beautiful natural setting. Whether you join us as a MultiCare employee or one of our private practice physicians, you’ll find the work rewarding—both personally and professionally. We’re committed to individualized patient- and family-centered care that facilitates strong relationships among patients, caregivers, and families. We are actively exploring new and better ways of providing our patients with comprehensive primary care and chronic disease care in a health home setting. Join us and you can be part of the future of evidence-based health care delivery.

MultiCare is proud to help our employees develop new skills and advance their careers. Here are just a few of the programs in place to help you achieve your career goals, whatever they may be.

INSTITUTE FOR LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

MultiCare has been recognized as one of the best learning organizations in the world by the American Society for Training and Development. Our Institute for Learning and Development (ILD) offers many courses tailored to MultiCare employees.

TUITION ASSISTANCE

Eligible full-time employees may receive up to $3,000 each year for approved courses.  Eligible part-time employees working at least 16 hours per week may receive between $1,500 and $2,000 in reimbursement based on their FTE status.

ON-SITE CAREER DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST

Once a week, a career development specialist from WorkSource is available to coach employees on advancement opportunities and related training programs to help them achieve their career goals.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT TEAM

MultiCare employs a team of leadership development professionals who offer programs such as:

  • Leadership Legacy, a five-day offsite course
  • Executive Coaching
  • Team Building
  • Several other targeted training courses

From radiographs to robots, MultiCare has emerged as a leading technology employer. Investments in technology have created jobs for professionals in:

  • Information management
  • Clinical informatics
  • Data security
  • Health Information Management
  • Imaging
  • Surgical technology
  • Telecommunications
  • Other high-tech fields

 

Career paths include:

  • Applications development

  • Management

ADVANCED SURGICAL TECHNOLOGY

MultiCare is home to Washington’s most advanced surgical center. We've implemented the daVinci Surgical System, a system that combines the latest advances in robotics and computer technology. Only a select group of health care providers nationwide offer robotic surgery using the DaVinci system.

ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD

MultiCare was the first health care system in Washington to implement Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology.

The EPIC electronic health record system was introduced several years ago in outpatient settings. In June 2007, it was rolled out to our inpatient settings. Additional enhancements will create jobs for EPIC Analysts, Educators and SMEs from various clinical areas.

IMAGING TECHNOLOGY

MultiCare’s impressive list of imaging equipment includes:

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) CT scanners
  • PACS (picture archive communication systems)
  • Image-guided sterotactic radiosurgery
  • Digital mammography

At MultiCare, we care for patients through every stage of life. The same is true for our employees. Our pay and benefits reflect the diverse needs of our employees—from new grads with school loans, to working parents, to "empty nesters" just a few years from retirement.

HOW PAY RATES ARE SET

MultiCare frequently monitors local, regional and national pay practices to ensure our pay remains competitive. Starting pay rates for new employees are based on relevant experience and, in some cases, education or certifications.

In most cases, pay is based on the average for similar jobs in our region. In some cases, our analysis includes a comparison of pay rates across the entire country.

INCENTIVE PLANS

In addition to competitive base pay and benefits, MultiCare offers a “Gainsharing” Program for employees and an Incentive Compensation Plan (ICP) for managers. Gainsharing provides cash awards to non-management employees when MultiCare achieves its targets for financial performance, quality and customer service.

When this program was introduced, it was the only one of its kind in Washington State and one of very few across the United States.

BENEFITS OVERVIEW

MultiCare’s comprehensive benefits guide includes medical, dental and life insurance.

Employees who work at least 24 hours per week receive full benefits, including health insurance coverage for themselves with minimal payroll deductions. Employees who work 16 to 23 hours per week receive pro-rated benefits, including health insurance coverage that is substantially subsidized by MultiCare.

Additional benefits include paid time off, retirement plans, wellness benefits, career development and an on-site daycare center. Part-time employees can also earn 15 percent more by waiving health insurance benefits and paid time off.
