Geisinger to hire 1,500 employees

Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger Health System plans to hire more than 1,500 physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses and support staff as part of its new nationwide recruitment effort.

The recruitment effort follows significant growth at Geisinger. In the last 10 years, Geisinger said it has grown from two to 12 hospitals, expanded its service area from 30 to 45 counties, including southern New Jersey, and nearly tripled its number of employees.

"Caring for more than 3 million patients every year takes a team," Julene Campion, vice president of talent management at Geisinger, said in a statement. "Every day, our 30,000 employees strive to improve that care. This responsibility has motivated Geisinger to push the boundaries of geography and healthcare innovation, grow its medical specialty and subspecialty offerings and recruit the best and the brightest for more than 1,500 critical healthcare positions to better care for our patients in the communities we serve."

The health system said its recruitment effort is strengthened by its dedication to quality and service, use of EHR and care models such as ProvenExperience, a program that offers a money-back guarantee to patients who receive care at Geisinger facilities.

Additionally, Geisinger noted its precision medicine project, MyCode Community Health Initiative, which has enrolled more than 110,000 participants, as well as its medical education efforts. Each year, the health system trains more than 400 residents and fellows. Geisinger also offers a health insurance product — Geisinger Health Plan — that covers more than 551,000 members.

"Geisinger employees drive everything that we do — and as a result, we invest in our workforce through competitive salaries, benefits, training and education to the tune of nearly $1.9 billion a year," Ms. Campion said in a statement. "Geisinger has immediate need for physicians, advanced practitioners and nurses to join our team."

Geisinger said it is also seeking candidates for all levels of employment, including administration, clerical, environmental services, food services, laboratory services, information technology, marketing, occupational therapy, pharmacy and research.

In the past year, Geisinger President and CEO David T. Feinberg, MD, has also instituted a $10 minimum wage across the health system.
