Platte Valley Medical Center (PVMC) is an excellent place to work with a proven success of hiring and retaining quality employees. In fact, the turnover rate among our associates is approximately half that of Denver metro area healthcare facilities. A Culture of Excellence and Care Platte Valley Medical Center is proud of our Planetree Designation which represents the highest level of evidence-based achievement in patient/person-centered care. All associates at Platte Valley commit to the Platte Valley Behavior Standards that help to sustain our culture of excellence. We recognize and value that one of our greatest strengths continues to derive from the friendships and alliances found throughout the Hospital. AS A SMOKE-FREE CAMPUS, WE HIRE ONLY NON-TOBACCO AND NON-MARIJUANA USERS. Platte Valley Medical Center promotes the science that tobacco use is harmful to health and does so by leading by example, encouraging abstinence, and sponsoring stop-smoking education for the community. Tobacco and marijuana use by employees diminishes the hospital's capacity to advocate for healthy living and sends a message counterproductive to the hospital's mission and values. Applicants who have been made an offer of employment will be tested for cotinine at their initial employment screen. If the test is positive an applicant may request a waiver; HOWEVER, the waiver process may include a urine test for anabasine, which is not present in non-smokers. If you have been tobacco-free and marijuana-free for the past 90 days, please continue to fill out your application. If you have not been tobacco-free and marijuana-free for the past 90 days, we are unable to accept your application at this time. We will be happy to accept your application in the future, once you have been tobacco-free and marijuana-free for 90 days. We reserve the right to do a cotinine and/or a marijuana test randomly or for cause.
