ST. LOUIS — Mercy is looking to hire temporary employees to work in COVID-19 support roles at various locations in the St. Louis area and other states.
Both clinical and non-clinical positions are available.
Job responsibilities may include stocking supplies and linens, answering phones and facilitating communication between patients and families, according to a news release. The shifts are flexible and range from four- to 12-hour increments. Employees will be paid at a flat rate.
“These temporary co-workers will give our front-line teams much needed support allowing our caregivers to use that valuable time focusing on direct patient care,” said Cynthia Bentzen-Mercer, Mercy executive vice president and chief administrative officer.
