To celebrate the award, we spoke to some of our employees who are still early in their careers, and asked them to share what makes Sinai Health a great place to work.
|Stephanie Bott, RN, NICU at Mount Sinai since 2016.
“I was hired as a full time RN just one month after graduating from university. I was drawn to Mount Sinai because of the hospital’s foundation in research and evidence- based best practice. Working here has provided me the opportunity and support to realize my full potential. I love working with fragile, small babies and their families, and am honoured to share in the journey with these patients. Over the years I have been fortunate enough to call my co-workers my friends and I have learned so much from each and every one of them.”
|Shawn Mota Onofre, Supervisor, Support Services. Working at Sinai Health since 2015.
“I knew I wanted to work in health care because of the great opportunities in the field, and was attracted to Sinai Health for the great reputation. I started here as a porter, and thanks to incredible mentors, I’ve worked my way up to being a supervisor in just a few short years. I’ve felt incredibly supported here, and have made a point to ask a lot of questions, and everyone I have worked with here has taken the time to help me out. It’s such an inclusive environment here, and the way everyone works collaboratively makes me proud to come to work every day.”
| Hannah Lam, Safety Coordinator, working at Sinai Health since 2017.
“I started working here as a student, and was hired full-time once I graduated. My job includes a little bit of everything, and you’re most likely to see me doing with mask fit tests, helping with on the job ergonomics, and visiting sites around our renewal project. One of the best things about working at Sinai Health is the constant focus on learning – as a teaching hospital, there is a culture of education here that you wouldn’t find at many other workplaces – everyone is willing to take a moment and help you learn, which is good not just for professional development, but for personal growth too.”
|Kenneth Cruz, RN, Emergency, working at Mount Sinai since 2017
“I was attracted to working at Mount Sinai because I am passionate about emergency care, and Mount Sinai is recognized as a leader in the field, including holding Magnet status for excellence in nursing. Working here is great because of the incredible support from the team – management works hard to ensure that everyone has the support to do their job properly, and the whole team is always actively looking out for opportunities to lend a hand. The camaraderie I’ve experienced at Mount Sinai is like nowhere else.”
