Nuclear Medicine Technologist, PRN

We Are Hiring

Sacred Heart Emerald Coast - Destin is hiring a Nuclear Medicine Technologist to work PRN Flexible Hours!

We are thankful for our Imaging Team members, as their unique ability to re-assure and comfort patients allows them to take needed images that provide doctors the means to diagnosis, treat, and cure patients. For instance, 12-year-old Chloe watches the movie Enchanted using new Cinemavision goggles during an MRI.  This wonderful technology used by our Imaging Team decreases anxiety and reduces the need for sedation; which improves the scan quality, and gives clearer test results and more accurate diagnoses.
