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.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Dignity Health full-time (More than 5 years)


    I love the TEAM on 4 North. I have been blessed to share in this remarkable opportunity; give care to the homeless, food to the hungry and spread humankindness daily. Each and every diverse individual comes together, ambassadors of health, effortless collaborators and seriously providers of excellent medical care. There is a wonderful sense of commodery between employees who have worked side by side for many years-I appreciate the warmth as a newbie to this unit! I am thankful to have the opportunity to transfer to other campuses and expand by knowledge. I love cross-training to work other positions. There is always room to excel and goals to achieve. Thank You Dignity Health for providing a pleasant work experience, phenomenal benefits and management that provides guidance and support as needed.


    I think that individuals need to remember that communication is vital. It is easy to take things very personal and lose perspective on why we are all here. I do agree that socializing and building relationships with our team members is important, however nothing is more valuable than patient centered care. We are all here to assist our patients through often the most trying times of their lives. I think less time focused on ourselves and more consideration for our patients will lesson time focused on mindless chatter.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to thank Management for their support, guidance and professional manner in which they over see our productivity.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dignity Health (Northridge, CA) in August 2015.


    The interview was professional yet personal, I was able to speak to my direct superior and have a conversation instead of simply being questioned. However, the interview was rigorous and you are required to describe experience and answer skill-related questions.
