You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Patient Transporter.
You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.
Youâ™re equally comfortable with communication, empathy, technology and reliability.
Youâ™re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
Our Patient Transport department takes pride in its ability to safely transport patients while sharing moments of compassion and customer service to everyone we contact in the hospital. We work out of a central location near Medical Imaging, and have developed relationships with every department in Lutheran. We currently average 300 transports a day! With a fun, self-motivated, and customer service focused staff of about 20 people. We are constantly working on ways of improving the work experience for patients, ourselves, and fellow staff members.
Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 249-bed community-based hospital provides comprehensive, specialty care to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other. Dating back to 1905, we are proud of the rich history and inspiring mission our hospital has embodied for over 110 years.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ™ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together weâ™ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ™ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
Weâ™ll laugh at each otherâ™s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ™ll hello and high five. Weâ™ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
Weâ™re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
As a Patient Transporter you need to know how to:
Transport patients, charts, specimens, and required equipment to various treatment and diagnostic areas throughout the hospital in a safe and efficient manner 100% of the time. Provide emergency assistance to patients who become ill during transport process until clinical staff can be notified and assistance arrives.
Comfort patients and their families by offering support and encouragement; being punctual and attentive to procedure schedules; demonstrating caring and cultural sensitivity.
Coordinate the care and maintenance of department equipment and supplies.
Verify mode of transportation, obtain patient chart, necessary paperwork, required linens, and/or equipment. Notify nursing staff of patient being transported and the destination.
We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:
High School Diploma or equivalent, required
Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association or the ability to obtain within sixty (60) days of hire (with prior approval), required
At least two (2) years of customer service experience, preferred

Now that you know more about being a Patient Transporter on our team we hope youâ™ll join us. At SCL Health youâ™ll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
