Mercy Downtown Hospital and Mercy Southwest hospital are award-winning, state-of-the-art facilities that are a part of the expanding Dignity Health network. Together the Mercy hospitals consist of 265-beds serving the residents of Kern County and its largest city—Bakersfield. The Mercy hospitals perform more than 11,000 orthopedic, general, gynecological, urological, ENT and other routine surgeries—no hearts, no heads and only healthy pediatrics patients. The Obstetrical Department accommodates about 2,000 deliveries a year.
Having served the community for more than 100 years, the Mercy hospitals now wish to leverage their well-earned reputation within the community and as a part of that initiative the Anesthesia Department is looking to add several CRNAs to join its 25-member team. Mission-critical skills and mindsets center on providing the safest and highest-quality care in an autonomous and enriching environment.
A variety of shifts including 7A to 3P, 5P, 7P, 11P and 7A are available. One or more offset shifts can be mixed and matched to accommodate a condensed schedule. Our exempt W-2 packages include a generous salary $450K, health, dental and vision insurance, short- and long-term disability, death and disability, CME dollars and a pay for performance plan.
