We are very pleased to introduce you to Bassett Healthcare Network. Our purpose is to deliver quality health care to the people who live, work, and raise their families in an eight county area in central New York. In addition to providing health care services, we invest in the future of health care by advancing medical education and medical research. As an academic medical center, these three commitments to excellence in health care services, educating practitioners and pursuing health research, have defined our mission for the more than eight decades that Bassett has been in existence. In that time, Bassett has grown to become one of the region's main economic engines and, as the largest employer, Bassett offers a wide variety of professional advancement opportunities.
We invite you to take your career to a whole new level at Bassett. The job possibilities are seemingly endless in a health care environment such as ours. From inpatient and outpatient clinical care, to outpatient procedural care, education, research, and school based health centers, the opportunities are wide open. If it is the administrative side of health care you are interested in, you will find a position at Bassett rewarding, whether you want to be a director, a manager or a Vice President. There are positions available as well in our regional clinics, billing department, materials management, human resources, organizational development and learning and so much more. Perhaps most importantly, we know it is the staff at Bassett who allow us to be the great organization people in the region have come to rely on for their medical care.
We know that buildings and sophisticated technology do not provide health care--people do. The relationship between our patients and caregivers is a personal and intimate one, where caring and compassion are as important as clinical skills. No matter what their role, employees of Bassett are improving lives, both their own and the lives of the people they serve.
We invite you to learn more about us through our web site, and encourage you to apply for any positions for which you qualify.
We strongly believe that if you become a member of the Bassett community you will learn that perhaps the best aspect of working at Bassett is that attribute that no one can quite articulate, but what is often referred to as Bassett''s spirit. It is what allowed us to win the top twenty-five most connected health care facility award, the VHA operational efficiency award and many more accolades - only possible because of the wonderful individuals that work here.
It is our commitment to our patients and each other that makes Bassett a great place to work.
Vance Brown, M.D.
President & CEO
