Presbyterian sets career fairs to fill 350 jobs in Santa Fe


Presbyterian Healthcare Services, scheduled to open a new hospital on Santa Fe's south side this fall, is looking to hire up to 350 employees for the center through a series of career fairs the last Monday of every month.

More than 100 of the jobs will be filled by nurses, chief nursing officer Terri Marney said. "We are going to be looking for nurses throughout New Mexico and beyond New Mexico," she added.

Presbyterian, the largest healthcare provider in the state, is opening what will be the nonprofit medical organization's ninth hospital in the state and only the second full-service hospital in Santa Fe.

The $145 million hospital project began in September 2016 on 40 acres off Interstate 25 and Cerrillos Road.

Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center, a 342,000-square-foot facility with an around-the-clock emergency department and an urgent care center, will have 30 private inpatient beds, a six-bed family birthing unit, laboratory and imaging services, a rehabilitation facility, surgical suites and specialty services, according to information provided by Presbyterian.

Paul Gonzales, Presbyterian's recruiting director, said the hospital will be hiring "clinical as well as nonclinical employees."

Clinical staff members include workers such as physicians, nurses and therapists, while nonclinical support positions range from food service workers to housekeepers to administrative and maintenance positions, Gonzales said.

Six career fairs are scheduled between March and August at the Inn at Santa Fe hotel, 8376 Cerrillos Road. The first three fairs are for clinical positions only, while the latter three are for all positions. The events will be on the final Monday of each month, but each will be held at a different time of day.

Job candidates are encouraged to check and submit applications online prior to the job fairs.
