Farmington Hospital Seeks To Hire Workers To Help Cope With COVID-19 Crisis


FARMINGTON, NM (KRQE) – As COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in San Juan County continue to rise, the hospital is making a big push to hire long-term help. The center hires nursing assistants, radiology technicians, paramedics, janitorial staff and more.

“We know there are a lot of talented individuals who care a lot about their friends, neighbors, family members, people they know in their community who are currently struggling with COVID,” Eddie said. Carraro, vice president of human resources at SJRMC.

Earlier this month, the state and federal government sent dozens of workers to help deal with overwhelmed patients, but only on a temporary basis. “Keeping in mind that these support people will be leaving us in the coming weeks, so we want to make sure we have enough to meet the needs of our community,” Carraro said.

The center says those interested can call 505-609-2000 or stop by the Center for Workforce Excellence located at 800 W. Maple in Farmington, Monday through Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm.
