The healthy healthcare industry
While many sectors of the job market suffered in 2011, healthcare was a bright spot. Over 300,000 healthcare jobs were added in 2011. And as a part of the nation’s healthcare system, CHOP is another star. The Hospital was ranked No. 1 in the nation by U.S.News & World Report for 2013-14 rankings of Best Children's Hospitals.
Part of the care team
Ensuring the highest level of safety for patients in our care is a core value at CHOP. Environmental and Linen Services is part of a series of rigorous safety checks and balances that apply to staff at all levels. ESD team members keep our hospital clean and safe — from patients’ rooms and beds to hospital corridors and common areas — and they are the extra set of eyes on the lookout for situations that could be dangerous. That’s their role as part of a care team that includes physicians, nurses and other clinical staff. And beyond safety, the ESD team offers hospitality. Their friendly, welcoming smile is important to patients and families who might be scared or nervous.
