It's like you aren't even in a hospital; it's clean, calming, and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. My department is a constant learning experience due to the need of radiology throughout the hospital. Anyone thinking of working here…DO IT! You won't regret it. If you're looking for an incredible job, full of wonderful experiences and great staff, don't hold yourself back. "

Registered Nurse


"When I began at WDH I was amazed at the technology and access to resources that are available to me which supports my day to day job function enabling me to be accurate, efficient and collect supportive data to make a difference for the future of the hospital, physicians, staff and our patients. Since being at WDH I have vastly built on my skill set as a Case Manager thanks to the expertise of the physician advisors, my manager and team of seasoned, expert Case Managers. WDH offers, encourages and supports professional growth with a strong team atmosphere. I have been encouraged to become involved in committees that promote positive change within my team. I feel I have a voice and can make a difference for the better.
My career as a Registered Nurse has become a lot clearer since joining my WDH team. I would say to anyone looking to advance his or her career, feel supported and belong to an awesome organization has a commitment to their community health; WDH is the place for you. "

Coming here, I have found the teamwork is what I have enjoyed most; the staff have been so welcoming and have treated me like family. I love my job and the management is by far the best I have ever experienced. Anyone thinking of applying to WDH should definitely do it!"

ED Tech


"I did not know what I wanted to pursue as a career, but I knew I wanted to be in the medical field. I took a Phlebotomy course to get my foot in the door and got hired at WDH. Ten years later, I am still here and loving it every day. Not only do I love my coworkers, who have become my close friends, but I love the diversity of my job. Often times I feel people overlook what we do, but not only do we provide compassion and skill in our job to the patients, but we also get to see behind the scenes; working closely with the medical staff ensuring patients are getting accurate results. I feel rewarded at the end of everyday knowing that I have played a role in helping the patients get the proper treatment they need."
