We are hiring a permanent part time (0.8 FTE) Long-term Care Coordinator to join our team at Ashcroft Hospital & Community Health Care Centre. We’re seeking nurses with long-term care experience and strong leadership skills to join our team.
Ashcroft and Cache Creek are small communities with one of the best climates in BC, having mild winters and warm summers with little precipitation. The mountains are only a few miles away. Skiing, hiking, fishing, swimming, and biking opportunities are within easy drives. While the health site is located in and named after the Ashcroft community (population 1,800), the Village of Cache Creek (population 1,200) is 10 km away. The site provides service to both communities and the surrounding area, a total population of approximately 7,000.
There are 21 long-term care beds located at the site as well as other services including x-ray and lab, home care nursing, home support, mental health and public health. The City of Kamloops (about an hour's drive) and Vancouver (three and a half hours away) provides urban opportunities. Larger cities are close enough to enjoy yet far enough away not to impact our life style.
The Long-term Care Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of day to day operations and quality long-term care within a designated clinical area(s). This position supports the seamless movement of residents through the healthcare system and in accessing appropriate resources.
The Long-term Care Coordinator also:

Shifts of work will be four 8 hour work days per week 08:00 to 16:00 with expected days of work Monday to Thursday with some exceptions.
This position offers the opportunity to play an integral role in the development and leadership with staff. As it’s located in a rural setting, there are other opportunities for learning in terms of staffing and taking on other managerial duties.
Come live, work and play where others only vacation. It’s more than a career, it’s a lifestyle. Apply today!
