KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If you are looking for a job and a way to serve and care for people, maybe your next career is at Advent Health Shawnee Mission.

There are multiple openings for jobs that range from helping nurses care for patients to cooking and delivering their meals and even childcare.

Just because you don’t have a medical degree doesn’t mean you can’t get a job that makes a difference in the lives of patients and staff, according to those who already work for Advent Health.

“You don’t need it. You can come join our team as a transporter,” said Stephanie Wise, Chief Nursing Officer, about one of their open positions that does not require a degree. “We have great benefits, such as tuition reimbursement if at some point you decide you want to go back. We have on-site childcare as well.”

It's a career that has taken on a new meaning during the pandemic.

“All of our frontline providers have given their heart and soul to caring for our patients in such uncertain times,” Wise said.

Current employees say even the food they serve can make a difference.

“This is an opportunity to show your passion and compassion for people,” said Steve Achord, director of food and nutrition services. “Forget about every cliché you’ve heard about hospital food.”
