KANSAS CITY, Mo. — From transporting patients to cooking and cleaning, the University of Kansas Health System has more than 70 jobs available for support services.

Open positions include dozens of custodial workers needed with no previous experience required.

Patricia Howard has worked at the University of Kansas Health system for more than four years. The former substitute teacher loves her job because she said it is about so much more than cleaning.

"If you care about people, that's the most important thing that shows through because you're in with that patient and they're in probably one of the hardest places they are in their life and you can be that light shining for them and giving them hope and encouragement," she said.

All the health system asks is that you come with an open heart.

"I don't care if you can clean, we can teach that," said Doug Beckham, assistant director for environmental services at the University of Kansas Health System. "But if you are about people and you have a heart, that's who we want."

There will be a virtual hiring event for these jobs on Dec. 30. Sign up for a time and a virtual interview at the event page.
