Seasonal Employment

Medical professionals who join us on a seasonal basis are highly valued members of our team! Thanks to all of the sun-seekers who travel to Yuma each winter to enjoy our great weather, our population nearly doubles during this time of the year. That’s why we’re always looking for nurses, respiratory therapists, laboratory technicians, surgical technicians, radiology technicians, radiation therapists and exercise physiologists who are searching for a great seasonal opportunity.
