Advocate Good Samaritan connects with Downers Grove high schools on future student jobs
Sometimes the key to a making a good decision is making an informed one.
To help local students know the types of careers offered at the hospital, a panel of team members at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove hosted 20 teachers from Community High School District 99 on July 31.
The visit was a part of the district's "Building Bridges" program, designed to facilitate visits to local businesses and learn about the skills students need to succeed in the future and what kinds of entry level jobs are available in the community.
Members of the Advocate Good Samaritan team highlighted paths to entering into a number of different careers, highlighted Advocate's employee tuition reimbursement and certification programs and spoke about available positions throughout the hospital.
"Healthcare has many entry points and not all healthcare careers start with post high school education," said Vicky Sas, human resources manager at the hospital. "We look forward to exploring avenues of employment for students post high school when skills and opportunity are a match."
The panel included Vicky Sas; environmental services Supervisor Tony Malloy; diagnostic imaging educator Patti Holvey; Nurse Manager Lisa Lockett; and recruiters Nina Griffis and Rachael Fecht.
