We believe that nowhere is it more important to reflect the people you serve than in the places they turn to for their care and well-being. That’s why it’s so important to us that Dignity Health is a place where diversity is not just an initiative–it’s a way of life. 

It begins by understanding that diversity goes beyond the human traits we can see. Among our employees, we are diverse in our backgrounds, in our beliefs and in the way we work. We’re diverse in our interests, our convictions and our ways of life.  Our families our unique, our futures will be unique, and our paths to Dignity Health have been unique. Our leaders embrace and champion diversity as an irreplaceable part of our ability to provide care for all people. That’s why at Dignity Health, inclusion is sought after, rewarded and recognized. 

As a concept, everyone has a different idea of what diversity means. But we all agree it’s important–and that it takes care and effort to ingrain it into one’s culture. At Dignity Health, we accomplish this in many ways. 

  • We offer all employees the same opportunities for development and advancement.
  • We reward teamwork and inclusion.
  • We provide diversity training to all employees.
  • We choose to support affirmative action when recruiting and advancing qualified people from all walks of life.
  • We work tirelessly to free our employment practices from bias and barriers.
  • We comply with all laws prohibiting discrimination in employment.
  • We uphold our own principles of non-discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, transfers, discipline, layoff and recall.
  • We encourage participation in community activities, events and organizations.
  • We offer benefits to all eligible employees in accordance with our ethics of non-discrimination.
  • We uphold an open-door policy, so that all employees feel free to express their ideas, concerns

The moment you walk through the door at Dignity Health, you will feel welcome, cared for and supported. We are called to care for one another, and nothing is more important to us than upholding the highest values of respect, fairness and compassion.

    Pay is competitive, benifits are great(free medical and dental). Company is always hiring. Great supervisor.


    When u want to apply directly at the hospital it's hard to get hired because many positions are Union and go by seniority.
