What makes an organization great to work for?
As you consider job opportunities in health care, please note that Salem Hospital has been Magnet™-designated since 2010. Magnet is the highest and most prestigious distinction a health care organization can receive for nursing excellence and high-quality
patient care. Only 8 percent of hospitals achieve this gold standard.
Magnet, combined with our Lean principles and methods, reflects a culture of respect for the people who do the work. Our structures and processes ensure the voice of the front line is heard, leading to continuous improvement in patient care, work environment
and staff satisfaction.
More than 30 years ago, the American Academy of Nursing conducted research that resulted in identifying 14 Forces of Magnetism. These forces attract and retain top talent and they apply to nurses and interprofessional partners, whether doing direct
care for patients or providing services to those who do. Our Magnet designation proves that Salem Hospital is a great place to work.
