Craig Hospital is committed to offering employee salaries and benefits competitive with other health-care organizations in the Denver area.
Craig offers medical, dental, and life insurance, as well as a tax-deferred annuity retirement plan, prescription plan, credit union, fitness center, free parking, smoke-free environment, and a satisfying place to work. We believe in the benefits of continuing education and provide tuition assistance and educational leave. Tuition assistance of up to $3,000 per year is available upon employment for nursing degree programs and after one year of employment for all other programs. We also offer a nursing loan repayment program up to $10,000.
Nurses also earn education dollars by precepting new employees. Nurses also have the opportunity to participate in hospital-wide or nursing department committees, activities or projects with paid time.
Not only does Craig Hospital provide excellent benefits to its staff, but we encourage employees to participate in special fun perks as well, including an annual summer event, free holiday banquet and music concert, barbecues, educational events and seminars, theatre tickets, and more.
Perhaps the most valuable benefit you will receive from Craig Hospital is the experience of working in a positive, supportive environment. We have over 700 employees and our success is due primarily to specialization and focused expertise, staff caring, and staff loyalty. Craig's Senior leadership team averages 14 years at Craig; physicians average 17 years at Craig; and professional treatment staff averages 8 years at Craig. This record of staff longevity is remarkable in today's marketplace, and the cultural and financial stability allows staff to maintain a single focus: to continually improve services and outcomes for patients, families, insurance carriers, and case managers. Patients and families report 100% good to excellent satisfaction with their Craig experience. Most of Craig's referrals come from former patients, families, insurance companies, and physicians from around the country.
Because the average length of stay for patients is two to three months, depending on the type and severity of the injury, our staff develops rewarding relationships with the patients and their families. In addition, more than 90% of our patients return home after their discharge from Craig Hospital, which is far above the national average. The satisfaction you will experience by helping patients (most of whom are 16-35 years of age) regain control of their lives is incomparable.
The Colorado lifestyle is an added benefit. People from all over the country are attracted to Colorado for its healthy economy and easy access to the Rocky Mountains. Craig Hospital is just minutes away from all the opportunities of urban and mountain living and recreation, appealing to every taste and lifestyle. We boast an average of 300 sunny days and less than 15 inches of precipitation each year, making this an ideal climate for hiking, skiing, mountain biking, river rafting, and a variety of other outdoor activities. Craig Hospital is conveniently located in the southeast area of Denver at 3425 South Clarkson Street, two blocks north of HWY - 285 (Hampden Avenue) and east of Broadway in Englewood, Colorado.
