About the Cath Lab you will work in:
The caregivers (employees) in the award-winning cath lab at Providence Alaska Medical Center (PAMC) serve a wide range of patient populations and conditions -- from newborns to geriatrics; from stable outpatients to critical care patients. Services include diagnostic and interventions in cardiac, peripheral and neurovascular. There is a separate electrophysiology (EP) team, but the cath lab staff often helps the EP team to set-up, scrub or circulate. Cath lab caregivers come from a variety of educational backgrounds including radiology technology, nursing, cardiovascular technology and other allied health professionals (many are Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists certified). However, the lab is not divided by these certifications or licensures; caregivers perform similar tasks and have the option of rotating through scrub, circulate and monitor. There is always something new in the cath lab at PAMC that requires a breadth of knowledge and flexibility regarding patient needs, equipment, techniques and the evolving medical culture. The successful caregiver in the cath lab will be able to multitask, think on their feet and adapt quickly.
 
About the ministry you will serve:
As the state’s largest hospital, Providence Alaska Medical Center (PAMC) provides full-service, comprehensive care to all Alaskans, a role unmatched by any other in the state. Mountain-Pacific Quality Health has awarded PAMC with its Quality Achievement Award for high-quality care in the areas of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia and surgical infection prevention. This is the highest honor awarded by Mountain-Pacific.
 
We’re also among the nation’s best employers for healthy lifestyles. The National Business Group on Health, a non-profit association of large U.S. employers, has honored PAMC for its commitment and dedication to promoting a healthy workplace and encouraging our caregivers (employees) and families to support and maintain healthy lifestyles.
