Facility :BOUNDARY HOSPITAL
Boundary District Hospital is currently seeking a casual Sonographer to join its medical imaging team. Boundary District Hospital, located in Grand Forks, BC, is a Community Hospital offering services including surgical, inpatient and emergency.
The Sonographer performs diagnostic ultrasound procedures/examinations and related duties working in collaboration with radiologists/cardiologists, physicians and other health care professionals.
We use the Philips iU22 machine and conduct abdominal, obstetrics, renal, thyroid, DVTs, carotids, pelvic, and testicular procedures at Boundary District Hospital. There is no radiologist on-site so we do not handle biopsies. We do approximately 1,700 ultrasounds a year.
This position works rotating days from 07:30-15:30 and 08:30-16:30 with no on-call required for ultrasound.
This is a casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary from 0 - 37.5 hours per week. Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part-time or full time positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual on-call positions and lead to regular employment.
For a challenging, growth-oriented career in a beautiful natural setting where balanced lifestyle choices abound, come to Interior Health and join our quest to set new standards of excellence in the delivery of health services in the Province of BC. Apply Today!
