New patient tower at STHS Edinburg

The day is rapidly approaching. South Texas Health System Edinburg will soon welcome its first patients into the hospital’s new five-story, $100 million patient tower.

With the grand opening only months away, the search is on for healthcare heroes to join the STHS family and become a part of healthcare history in the Rio Grande Valley. Beginning April 5, South Texas Health System’s human resources department will host “Towering Forward Tuesdays” hiring events every first and third Tuesday of the month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. inside the STHS Regional Operations Center at 1400 W. Trenton Rd. in Edinburg.

From registered nurses and patient care technicians who can provide quality, compassionate care to patients and behind-the-scenes staff members, including medical laboratory technicians, clinical lab specialists and respiratory therapists, to dietary aides and housekeepers, STHS Edinburg is hoping to fill more than 100 positions throughout the tower with healthcare heroes with a passion for helping meet the community’s medical needs.

“For years, we’ve had the vision to expand our healthcare services at STHS Edinburg through this new patient tower. It’s been incredible seeing the project come to life, and now we’re excited to bring new career opportunities to healthcare heroes in our community,” says Lance Ames, Chief Executive Officer, STHS Edinburg and STHS Children’s. “We’re towering forward with the expansion of our services for the community, and we’re looking forward to doing that with help from healthcare heroes in our community. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or a recent graduate, your career awaits you at STHS Edinburg’s new patient tower. We look forward to expanding our team with local talent.

“Not only is the demand for healthcare ever growing, but it’s one of the most rewarding careers you can have. Every day brings a new opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.”

Anyone interested in applying to work at the new patient tower is encouraged to bring their resume to one of the upcoming Towering Forward Tuesdays hiring events. Information on the system’s competitive salaries, great benefits package and special sign-on bonuses for qualified applicants will be provided.
