While the pandemic put a spotlight on those in the health care industry, we know that our health care workers have always been heroes. We see it every day in the work that they do to care for our patients—from celebrating new beginnings to offering support during some of life’s most difficult and poignant moments.
If you’ve been inspired to pursue a career in health care or are looking for a new opportunity, Main Line Health might be the right place for you. Learn more about what makes our health system—recently ranked as a Top 15 Health System nationwide— a special one.
Now more than ever, a career in health care offers the opportunity to make a difference. Whether you’re caring for patients at the bedside, ensuring the cleanliness of our facilities, or working as part of our professional services teams to connect patients with the care they need, a career at Main Line Health means you are making a difference every day.
This commitment to making a difference has perhaps never been more evident than it was during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past year, many members of the Main Line Health team volunteered to serve in new roles necessitated by the pandemic, from distributing masks to our staff to screening patients and visitors at our campuses. During a challenging time, our staff worked together to ensure their colleagues on the front lines could continue to provide care as safely as possible.
“Health care is not just a career, it is a calling. The courage and resiliency demonstrated by our staff over the past year is a testament to the culture at Main Line Health. Our employees go above and beyond to support each other and we will always rise to meet the challenges that come our way,” says Main Line Health President & CEO Jack Lynch.
With more than 11,000 employees and 2,000 medical staff, Main Line Health is one of the largest employers in the Philadelphia region. Our staff is united by a common goal: to meet the health care needs and improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.
When you work for Main Line Health, it’s common to hear people say that one of the best things about their job is the people they work with. We recognize that our people are our greatest asset. That’s why we are committed to fostering an environment of collaboration, participation and respect. A cornerstone of that belief is a commitment to attracting talented, dedicated people from a broad cross-section of backgrounds, experiences and walks of life—all working together for the common purpose of providing superior care.
It’s not uncommon for employees to start a career journey at Main Line Health and end up staying for many years, thanks to our competitive benefits package and continuing education opportunities—as well as the fact that people just love working here.
At Main Line Health, we believe that part of what make us special is that we have the privilege of caring for our friends and neighbors. As a regional health system comprised of community hospitals that our patients have turned to for generations, we have saved and changed the lives of our friends, neighbors and communities. We treat our patients like family because, in many ways, they are.
There are a plethora of opportunities available at Main Line Health to help our employees and medical staff learn and grow, including in-person training and education on a variety of workplace topics, on-demand virtual learning modules, CEU events for clinical staff and—notably—an annual Healthcare Disparities Colloquium that highlights our employees’ work to address disparities in care.
Additionally, employees are encouraged to get involved with System and campus-specific programs like our Diversity, Respect, Equity & Inclusion Committee and Recruitment & Retention Committee. Participation in these programs offers exposure to colleagues in a variety of functions across the System and supports important initiatives to keep employees engaged.
Professional development opportunities outside of Main Line Health are also encouraged. We offer tuition reimbursement to staff who are pursuing advanced degrees or certifications in their area of expertise and encourage employees to become members of professional development organization in their region and industry.
At Main Line Health, our promise to patients is that they will Be Seen. This is about more than giving them access to clinicians, care and facilities that understand and meet their health care needs—it is a promise that every patient is an individual who can expect personalized and compassionate care.
The same philosophy applies to our employees. Just as we see every patient for who they are and the care they need, so, too, do we see our employees and value them for their unique talents and contributions. As a member of the Main Line Health team, you will not just be seen—you will be appreciated.
