Are you a nurse who likes new challenges, loves the outdoors and values work life balance? If so, then Summerland Health Center is the place for you and we currently have a casual opportunity for an Operating Room Nurse in our team.
Summerland Health Center (SHC) is a small and very efficient perioperative unit that provides quality care for day surgery procedures. The types of services delivered depend on the patient needs and on whether comparable services are available nearby. SHC currently performs over 1350 cataract surgeries a year and over 500 ENT/Dental procedures. As a result of the Ministry of Health’s implementation of the Patient Focused Funding, SHC has expanded to perform up to 600 ENT procedures a year.

Community: Summerland (population 10,828) is an agricultural community with a location that makes it a natural tourist destination. The town centre is situated in a flat area above Okanagan Lake with fertile valleys defined by forested ridges. Giant's Head Mountain, an extinct volcano, dominates the skyline. People come to Summerland to buy fruit from local farms, taste the vintages of Bottleneck Drive wineries, ride the Kettle Valley Steam Railway, see the work of artists in galleries and studios, play golf and to make the most of the town's gardens and parks with hiking, cycling, water activities and wildlife viewing. Summerland's Tudor-revival town centre is compact and easily walkable, without a single traffic light. People are friendly and welcoming. Drivers stop for pedestrians and shop owners put out bowls of water for thirsty pooches on hot summer days. Everything from hardware to antiques, locally designed fashions to international collectibles is available at downtown shops along with some uptown dining choices.
