RN Registered Nurse - Acute Dialysis
About our Client:
March 1, 1958, a brand new hospital a not-for-profit public entity was constructed on its current site. Between 1967 to current, the hospital has undergone several remodels and additions, including the construction of a new 3-story patient tower in 1985, increasing the hospital capacity from 53 to 93 beds. A Cancer Treatment opened in January 1990 which gave the community the much-needed service of radiation and medical oncology. In June 1992, the hospital acquired an MRI that is housed on the premises in its own stand-alone facility. 1996 saw the expansion and upgrading of the Emergency Department and the building of a 5-story patient care tower that doubled the size of the hospital. We now have approximately 150 births per month in our Women’s services area, and provide over 38,000 Emergency Room visits per year.
