Ballad Health holds drive-thru hiring event for Kingsport-based jobs
Job-seekers in the Appalachian Highlands can find fulfilling, rewarding healthcare careers – and they can get hired without leaving their vehicles.
To fill open positions at its Kingsport-based facilities – including Holston Valley Medical Center, Indian Path Community Hospital and Wexford House, as well as Ballad Health Medical Associates offices – Ballad Health will hold a drive-thru job fair on Friday, June 25, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in Holston Valley’s Green Parking Lot, located on the corner of Ravine Street and Holston Valley Drive.
Key jobs being sought at the event include registered nurses and licensed practical nurses for day and night shifts; surgical technicians; RN team coordinators; medical lab technicians and medical technologists; and a variety of other roles.
“There are so many compassionate, capable people in our communities, and they have great potential to make a positive impact in people’s lives and join our team of healthcare workers,” said Theresa Trivette, chief nursing officer for Holston Valley and Indian Path. “By expanding our workforce, we can continue to focus on the experience we provide patients in our hospitals, and we can also bolster the work-life balance of our current team members by adding additional support for them, which will further enhance the care provided by our health system.”
Interested applicants should bring their resumes and prepare for an interview on the spot. While the event is focused on filling clinical positions, applicants will be considered for all positions across the facilities. Both full and part-time positions are available. Masks are also required.
Clinical team members in Ballad Health’s acute care facilities can also take advantage of flexible shifts, which include partial shifts of four, six or eight hours. Positions that are eligible for flexible schedules include all clinical roles, including registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, nursing assistants/CNAs and behavioral health technicians. The schedules are also available for students working through healthcare degrees, which allows them to gain experience while retaining time for their studies.
“There are healthcare heroes all across the Appalachian Highlands – they’re in our hospitals and offices already, and they’re in our communities waiting for the right opportunity,” Trivette said. “And this could be the opportunity they’ve been waiting for.”
The health system is also offering sign-on bonuses for certain nursing positions at Ballad Health’s four largest hospitals – Bristol Regional Medical Center, Holston Valley Medical Center, Johnson City Medical Center and Johnston Memorial Hospital. To be eligible for a bonus, applicants must be new hires who haven’t been employed by Ballad Health in the last six months. The bonus comes with a 30-month commitment agreement with Ballad Health.
Ballad Health offers competitive pay and benefits to support its team members as they serve the Appalachian Highlands. The Ballad Health benefits package includes medical, dental and vision insurance, prescription drug coverage, short-term and long-term disability, a health savings account, a retirement plan, counseling and a flexible spending account.
Additionally, Ballad Health team members enjoy voluntary benefits such as critical illness, accident, disability and pet insurance plans in addition to group discounts at many local, regional and national retailers.
