Why We Choose to Work at Foothill Regional Medical Center

Joyce, Center of Excellence Surgical Programs Director

“The Foothill Regional Medical Center administration is very supportive of staff and they focus on getting things done right. Staff is so friendly; the culture reminds me of how it used to be at hospitals—more of a family environment.”

Erika, OR Scheduler 

“We have seen tremendous growth over the last two years, so Foothill Regional’s OR attracts those who thrive in a fast-paced environment—everyone gives 110%, which makes my job rewarding. In addition to my colleagues, I enjoy the rapport I’ve developed with the doctors’ offices I work with. They can see how much we care about their patients’ surgical outcomes.”

Jeovani, Utilization Review Specialist

“My co-workers are awesome… it is such a family-oriented culture! Because I live near the hospital, I feel like I’m taking care of my community every day. I have found that I love patient care so much that I’m going to become an RN and work here for years to come.”

Lisette, RN, BSN, Charge Nurse, Med-Surg/Telemetry

“Working at a new hospital allows you to help shape the culture and grow with the facility. I feel that I and the other nurses play a role in shaping a culture of caring at Foothill Regional Medical Center. I also appreciate that the CNO and CEO are accessible and I can speak with them directly. At other hospitals, you typically have to go through a chain of command. Not only do they have an open-door policy, but they are responsive to nurses’ feedback.”

Kimberly, RN, BSN, Med-Surg/Tele, 2018 Employee of the Year

“I started at Foothill Regional Medical Center right out of nursing school. I interviewed for several new graduate programs, but the staff at Foothill made me feel right at home because the interview was a two-way dialogue. I stayed after completing the program because of the multiple learning opportunities provided. Equally important, my co-workers and I work as a cohesive team—quick to help each other out and provide teaching moments.”

Janette, ICU, RN, BSN

“I knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl and treated my friends’ skinned knees with my first-aid kit. Over the past 20 years, I have worked in a variety of hospitals and settings, so I speak from experience when I say Foothill Regional Medical Center has an amazing work culture. The directors and managers are highly visible to encourage staff and resolve issues. Everyone from managers to support staff help each other out.”

Janette is graduating Summa Cum Laude with an MHA degree in May 2019.

Jose, Dietary Kitchen Manager

“With 21 years preparing meals for both patients and hospital staff and visitors, I still love what I do because it’s a happy work environment with great people. I also get the chance to help contribute to patient healing with good quality food.”
