Patients Are the Reason We Exist,
People Are the Reason We Excel

MultiCare is a leading-edge, integrated health organization made up of five hospitals, numerous primary care and urgent care clinics, multi-specialty centers, Hospice and Home Health services, and many other services. A not-for-profit organization based in Tacoma, Washington since 1882, MultiCare has grown over the years in response to community needs. Today we are the area's largest provider of health care services, serving patients more than 100 locations in Pierce, South King, Kitsap and Thurston counties.

We want to attract the best and retain the best. Our generous compensation package is proof that employees enjoy benefits far beyond health insurance and paid sick and vacation leave. Benefits include everything from disability insurance to paid bereavement and jury duty to free bus passes.

We also want to create an environment that fosters compassion, conscientiousness, and quality care in our staff. That’s why we strive to match our staffing needs with our employees’ lives by offering flexible work schedules. We support no required floating outside your general service area. And, according to the Washington State Nurses Association, we offer the best incentive pay plan for extra shifts.

We support the principles of equal employment opportunity and will not discriminate with respect to race; color; religion; sex; national origin; age; sensory, mental or physical disability; marital and veteran’s status; or sexual orientation in any aspect of employment and pre-employment practices.

Educational Opportunities: Institute for Learning and Development

Curiosity…Learning…Camaraderie…all are words that remind us of how deeply satisfying and energizing it is to continuously build our talents and skills throughout our lives. MultiCare’s Institute for Learning and Development is committed to the educational needs of all our employees.

The array of opportunities is impressive and something we can be proud of. Whether you’re interested in refreshing your skills in CPR, using technology to make your work easier and faster, juggling the demands of home and work, or learning how to cope with the transitions in your life, there are courses and support available. We offer a variety of resources that help you stay on the cutting edge of clinical knowledge, health care trends and professional issues.

The Wagner Resource Center at Tacoma General Hospital is an excellent place to study clinical outcomes, track down health texts and keep up with the latest in nursing. The Center offers everything from databases and multimedia workstations to training videos, books and journals.

Continuing education classes and conferences, tuition reimbursement assistance, certification programs in specialties from critical care nursing to neurology nursing, as well as several in-house residency programs are also available.
