PeaceHealth – Why Work With Us?


" Thanks to our Caregivers, we've achieved countless milestones- from driving a 50% reduction in serious safety events through our Clinical Excellence work; increasing access to care through our acquisition of ZOOM+Care; being named one of the nation’s top 150 places to work in healthcare and one of the healthiest 100 workplaces in America; to making over $14 million in philanthropic donations to our communities. None of this would be possible without you and your dedication to our shared Mission."

- Liz Dunne, PeaceHealth President & CEO 

 

At the heart of our Mission, Values, and Vision is our responsibility to our patients, their loved ones and our communities. For over a century, PeaceHealth has been committed to Exceptional Medicine and Compassionate Care. Our founding Sisters, known for their activist and reformist ways, committed to a mission of social justice and healing for all. This vision continues to resonate in all that we do, including the relentless pursuit of continually improving our health care services and care.

This program offers finaicial incentives for participating in a Health Risk Assessment, wellness lab screening, and wellness challenges.

Employee Assistance Program

The PeaceHealth Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides short-term counseling and referrals for caregivers and their family members for stress-related issues, emotional difficulties, critical incidents and other personal concern. The program offers free, confidential, professional counseling to help caregivers and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives and/or job performance.
 

Paid Time Off

PeaceHealth knows the importance of taking time off for relaxation, recreation, holiday observance, illness, emergencies and personal business. PeaceHealth recognizes the diversity of the caregivers across the system and that their needs for time off may vary. The PTO program provides flexibility to plan and use accrued paid time off based on needs of individuals.

Additional Time Away

There may be times when caregivers need a longer leave from PeaceHealth, for instance, for FMLA, maternity leave or military leave. Most leaves require a certain length of service before eligible (varies by leave type) and are subject federal or state laws and regulations.
