Why Join Ascension?

Saint Agnes Healthcare’s roots in Baltimore go all the way back to 1823.  Our culture both then and now is based on a belief that ALL people deserve to be treated with dignity.  For generations we have served the beautifully diverse community that is our home with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.  Today we offer a full range of services through our 254-bed, full-service teaching hospital, Saint Agnes Medical Group, Seton Imaging Center, and Saint Agnes Foundation.

 

As part of Ascension we are part of a bigger ministry to deliver compassionate personalized care to all, especially those most in need.  Ascension is one of the leading non-profit health systems in the United States.  In fiscal year 2018, Ascension provided nearly $2 billion in care of persons living in poverty and other community benefit programs. 

What You Will Do

While patients are with us they often must be moved from their room to another area or department for testing or diagnostics.  The Patient Transporter team is who keeps things moving, safe and on time.  Transporters are responsible for making sure that the right patient is taken to the right place and that this is documented appropriately.  You will ensure the comfort of the patient and be attentive and alert for any signs of patient distress during transport.   

 

You are key in the patient experience as you provide customer service and monitor them to be sure they are safe as they are transported. Not only will you impact the experience of the patients you transport but as an Associate who is all over the hospital you will be an ambassador of our culture to all you encounter in the hallways.  You will get to know the entire hospital as you will work with almost every unit and department. 

 

This position is per diem.  Per Diem Associates work on as as-needed basis.  The minimum commitment is 32 hours per month or on average one 8 hour shift per week.  Must be able to work a weekend shift at least once every 4 weeks.  This position is not benefit eligible.  Shifts are 8 hours long and are primary days.   Our team works the following shifts:  7AM to 3:30PM; 7:30AM to 4PM; 10:30AM to 7PM; and 1PM to 9:30PM. 

 

What You Will Need

  • High School Diploma or GED required.
  • Basic Life Support (BLS) Certification from the American Heart Association prior to hire or transfer date required.
  • Prior / recent experience as a Patient Transporter in a hospital setting is strongly preferred as training into a per diem position is difficult due to the limited hours of the role. 
  • Strong communication and reading comprehension skills are essential.
  • Outstanding customer service focus and the ability to put patients of all ages at ease is a must!
