Representatives of Mercy Health said they are looking to hire entry-level and experienced professionals from all backgrounds even if potential applicants do not see their profession listed in the list of openings.

“There isn’t an exact number of hires we’re looking to employ at the event either – rather we just want to hire as many qualified candidates as we can. We’ll have hiring managers there that are equipped and prepared to complete offers on-site,” said Jennifer Robinson, a Public Relations and Communications Manager for Mercy Health.

Robinson said that like other hospitals across the country, there has been an unprecedented demand for acute care as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and that has made staffing an important focus.

“Treating people with care and compassion, making lives better and growing personally and professionally is what future employees can expect from a career with Mercy Health,” said a news release from Mercy Health related to the hiring event.
