Marilyn's Story

Remarkable nursing careers start here. Imagine a friendly workplace, where surgical nurses are empowered to grow, learn and achieve beyond their expectations. This is what you’ll find at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System. We have a shared governance structure that creates a team-oriented environment unlike any other. We also provide a special Clinical Advancement Program, where nurses can receive bonuses based on displaying excellence in medicine, leadership, mentoring, education and customer service.

Within the OR department, our nurses contribute to a team of board-certified surgeons, residents-in-training, anesthesiologists, physician assistants and technicians. This is a highly collaborative and high-tech culture for individuals who want to deliver personalized care. While each facility varies, we have invested over $80 million in state-of-the-art technology, including interactive, voice-activated equipment, flat screens, da Vinci® and CyberKnife robotics, and the latest in minimally invasive procedures.

In addition to general surgery, our team delivers patient-centered treatment in all areas of care. We’re recognized for top volumes in cardiothoracic surgery and ranked fourth in the state for orthopedic total joint procedures. What’s more, Solucient named Saint Joseph Mercy Health System one of the Top 20 health systems in the country for Total Joint Programs. In 2006, we opened a brand-new surgery pavilion, and we will be opening an additional outpatient surgery center in the fall of 2009. Join us here as we continue to expand our delivery of innovative procedures through advanced techniques.

We offer a comprehensive orientation program that provides up to 16 weeks of training, so you can become a scrub nurse or circulating nurse in any of our sophisticated surgical suites. Choose from individual specialty teams such as General and Vascular Surgery, Cardiothoracic, Neuro/Spine/Opthalmologic and Orthopedics. Whatever your skill level or passion for surgical care, you’re sure to thrive in our welcoming, team environment.
