Job Description & Requirements
Medical Surgical Nurse - Travel - (MS RN)
Now a 376-bed, two-campus regional health system, our facility has earned a national reputation for outstanding quality of care. To further expand care, in January 2016 we became part of LifePoint Health, a leading healthcare company dedicated to Making Communities Healthier®.
As part of LifePoint, we continue our existing charity care policies, and a local Board of Trustees ensures the community’s voice in the governance of the hospital. The hospital’s staff continues building upon the legacy of excellent healthcare that has been established as well as exploring new ways to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities served. In addition, our hospital is now a local taxpayer, providing a new source of tax revenues that benefits the community and helps support local projects, local schools and infrastructure in the Chattahoochee Valley. And, as it has since its founding, St. Francis continues to recognize the importance of holy when it comes to healing, placing priority on meeting the spiritual needs of patients, their families, and their friends through the Chaplain Services ministry and weekly services held in the hospital chapel.
