Caring for the elderly requires an unlimited supply of patience, skill and commitment. At Bethesda, more than 1,200 employees dedicate their careers and personal time to improving the lives of others. This noble calling is embraced by Bethesda's employees and volunteers, who earn the sincere gratitude of family members, residents and their industry peers every day.
The quality of Bethesda employees is exemplary. The Bethesda hiring process ensures that only the most qualified are invited to join the Bethesda team, while continuing education is encouraged to help each person to grow professionally and improve their skills.
As mentioned above, Bethesda has been named to the select group of those earning recognition as one of the "Best Places to Work in St. Louis" each of the last two years. More than 140 organizations submitted applications, and only 25 were selected as finalists.
In addition, Bethesda has earned local recognition as one of St. Louis' Best Places to Work by Louie Magazine, which recognized Bethesda's generous benefits for part-time employees.
Bethesda's secrets lie in attracting qualified professionals, conducting pre-employment assessments, earning referrals from current employees and always encouraging professional development. The Bethesda Institute, for example, offers instruction on management and health care administration topics as a required program for all managers. Bethesda also presents a variety of optional courses for managers' continued professional growth. Regularly scheduled in-service training is provided to all employees to ensure our staff is apprised of the latest professional practices.
As the true lifeblood of the organization, Bethesda employees dedicate their professional careers to caring for the aging. Yet they also demonstrate their personal commitments to seniors by generously donating to the Bethesda Health Group Foundation in support of our residents who have outlived their means.
