Working for USA Health

USA Health is a system of hospitals, clinics and physician offices that provides state-of-the-art health care powered by academic medicine. Each and every day, team members work hand-in-hand to make a difference in the lives of the people on the Mississippi, Alabama and Florida Gulf coast. Together, we’re transforming medicine.

There are lots of good reasons to consider starting or continuing your career at USA Health.

Learning Environment

At USA Health, you never stop learning. We’re an academic medical center affiliated with the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and College of Nursing, so there’s a constant influx of new ideas, breakthroughs and learning opportunities. You get to see these health care advances first hand. You get to witness medical miracles. And you have the opportunity to grow personally through our Educational Benefit Plan.

Leading-edge Medicine

USA Health is more than a local community hospital. The advances we’re developing through clinical trials and primary research are transforming medicine the world over. In our facilities, our specialists are using state-of-the-art technology like the CyberKnife radiosurgery system and The da Vinci robotic surgery system to treat patients who might otherwise face riskier open surgery. Our clinics range from general family medicine and primary care practices to specialty clinics that focus on autism, sickle cell anemia, dialysis and more. When you work here, you’re a part of a team that’s doing great things.

A Culture of Purpose

We hire people who want to make a difference. The result is that there’s a real sense of belonging when you work here. You become part of a team whose goal is the same: to provide the best health care possible for the people we serve. That leads to a sense of camaraderie that’s rare in any profession, but commonplace here. You can feel it wherever you go, whether an exam room, an operating room or a dining room during one of the team-building events we plan each year.

Career Growth

USA Health is a place that supports, encourages and even facilitates team members who want to become better at what they do and who they are. Here, you have the means and the opportunities to advance your career through education and training. For nurses, our clinical ladder lays forth a specific pathway for growth opportunities. When you accept a position at USA Health, it’s not just a job, it’s the first step in your career.
