Interior Health is dedicated to providing the best possible service to our citizens with staff and physicians who are committed to teamwork and high quality patient care all playing an important part in our vision to set new standards of excellence in the delivery of health services in the Province of British Columbia....

Cariboo Memorial Hospital (CMH) is seeking perinatal nurses to join our supportive nursing staff in Williams Lake! We have permanent full time, part time, relief and casual positions available.

At CMH, our Perinatal Nurses handle a combined role and provide the full range of perinatal services, which give them the opportunity to develop in all areas of the Perinatal Specialty. This is an opportunity to work with four active OBGYNs in a community with a young population where we average one delivery per day with a Level 1b Nursery. We have moderate to high risk clientele and are a mini referral centre for sites such as Bella Coola and 100 Mile House. We are a small but mighty unit that provides excellent care and services to our patients including walking epidurals and recovering C-sections. 

Our nurses enjoy working in a team environment with well-established working relationships and an engaged group of physicians who support our cohesive group dynamic. We are committed to mentoring and coaching each other and enjoy supporting new grads on to our unit. We have a laid back casual yet professional atmosphere where the doctors are our teammates without the hierarchy. 

**Some positions qualify for a $10,000 Signing Bonus. 

**Accommodation may also be provided for RN’s seeking casual work in our region.

Our benefits package for permanent positions includes:
• 4 weeks vacation
• Insurance premiums 100% paid by Interior Health

The growing community of Williams Lake is located amidst sparkling lakes and rolling ranchland in the heart of the Cariboo Chilcotin Region of British Columbia. As the largest city in the area, it serves as a business, industrial and service hub for outlying communities and provides employment opportunities in the forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. Home to the famous Williams Lake Stampede, this former “cowtown” has grown into a vibrant city that offers its residents a comfortable blend of urban living and western charm. Horseback riding, mountain biking, river rafting, cross country skiing, fishing and camping are popular recreational pursuits in the area.

We are a hard working and welcoming team. CMH is truly a great place to work! Apply today!
