Healthcare touches everyone in our community. If you’re looking for a place to volunteer your skills and have a wide community impact, SHHA is interested in you. We have openings on our Board of Directors, but if you’re looking to get your feet wet and perhaps move up to the Board later, our board committees are also welcoming members of the community.
Our Board is focused on governance, so you won’t be asked to raise funds. Our committees can be a bit more hands-on in their tasks but ultimately, they all make recommendations to the Board.
Interested? Complete our Board Application Form and let us know where your strengths lie.
SHHA is committed to putting patients and their families first, and that means viewing the healthcare experience through their eyes. Our Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) represents the voice of SHHA’s patients and families and partners with staff and physicians to provide direct input into policies, programs, and practices which effect the patient experience.
If you are interested in joining our Patient and Family Advisory Council, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are looking to join the SHHA team as a physician, please email email@example.com.
Why choose a career in rural nursing/medicine? Our employees say:
“Working in a rural setting provides great experience to those that enter it. A smaller center enables you to:
- Practice your skill set and use knowledge gained from your education.
- Provides a home town feeling that you typically may not get in a bigger center.
- Our team works closely together and forms long lasting friendships.
- Our team also gives support to each other, whether it be education, advice or being an ear.
- Being from this community, patients are very grateful to see a familiar face in their trying times.
I have been a nurse here for 32 years now and cannot believe how fast my time has gone. I have formed great relationships, and it has been a very rewarding career to have the privilege of living in this community, being close to work, and doing something I love.”
- B., Registered Nurse
