Exceptional care is a team effort. Even if you've never considered healthcare as a next step, you'll find there are many paths to creating a career at Cleveland Clinic centered on what matters most to you.
Our Environmental Services Department is consistently among the highest performing Environmental Services teams in healthcare, and we're looking to add an Environmental Services Area Cleaner to our team to create a comfortable and safe environment our patients have come to expect. This position is responsible for the cleaning and disinfecting of patient rooms, restrooms, and various common areas assigned to your unit. Other duties include timely completion of discharge and other assorted cleaning requests, establishing rapport with patients, and working alongside fellow caregivers from other departments. The ideal candidate is comfortable working independently, responsive to changing and pressing requests, proactive in identifying and attending to needs of assigned area, communicates well with others, comfortable working as part of a team, and empathetic towards patients, visitors, and caregivers.
Opportunities to interact and make a positive impact on patients, visitors, and caregivers, and significant opportunities for vertical growth within a large department (Team Lead, Supervisor, Manager), are just a few reasons this role would matter most to the right candidate.
Cleveland Clinic invests in our caregivers, technologies, and processes because working together is how we all learn and grow. Join us, and you'll experience the difference of a culture where opportunities to advance and the support to get there go hand in hand.
