How We Work

There is something special about working with a team united in a common purpose. The way we strive to make a difference in the lives of kids and families. The pride we take in delivering quality care. The trust we have in each other to give every task our all. No matter your role, at Children’s, we're all in this together.

Our Promise: 
People First, Children Always. 

At Children’s, kids are our purpose. Our why. But our people are our how. We can’t do what we do without each and every one of our amazing employees. As part of our team, you come first—your needs, your growth, your wellness—so that you can perform at your best for the children. We’re committed to each other because we’re united in our common purpose and we share a common set of values that we live every day.

Hear From Those Who Know

Matthew testimonial photo
"We are team oriented. Everyone here is a team player. Everyone works very well, from your PT, OT... we're all in this together. We're all one. You don't have to know a single person to be greeted with open arms and others wanting to share their knowledge."
Matthew, Clinical Nurse
Katherine King Clinical Nurse at Children's
"There is nothing like watching children get better under your care. Getting a job at Children’s was a dream realized."
Katherine, Clinical Nurse
Atul testimonial
"There’s something intrinsic in all of us that drives us, and I don’t think there’s that level of engagement anywhere else that I’ve seen."
Information Security & Technology
"I love my job because I learn something new every day, probably more than every day, probably five or six times a day! I've been doing this job for over 30 years. And I would say that I learned more in the last 10 years than I learned in the 20 years before that."
Dr. Janss, Pediatric Neuro-Oncologist
"Children’s is the most phenomenal hospital in the world. I've tried to work at other hospitals, and nothing compares to the work that we do here at Children’s; the smiling faces of the kids; and our nice, kind employees; and the great leadership we have here."
Calvin, Quality & Project Management
Peter Dixon Transplant Care Technician at Children's
“I’ve worked at Children’s for 40 years…Since I’ve been here for so long, it’s like being at home. Just being around people that really care about Children’s and care about their patients has made me a better person.”
Peter, Transplant Care Technician
Jeremy Meller Chief Information Officer at Children's
"Like many people with a military background, I've found it can be challenging to find the same sense of mission that serving my country provided. Children's offers that level of purpose, which makes it easy to motivate myself to give my best every day. Doing my best work is fulfilling and adds an important dimension to my life. I love that this perspective is widely shared by the leaders, physicians and staff here. I think we do a great job finding mission-oriented and dedicated team members to help us achieve our vision to do everything possible to make anything possible for kids."
