You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Chief Polysomnographic Technologist.
Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.
You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.
Youâ™re equally comfortable with being a team player, being able to think quickly on your feet, communication and patient care.
Youâ™re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
