Our Mission: To be the best place to come for care and work

No one knows this better than our own nurses. At Southern Illinois Healthcare, you’ll find a culture of collaboration and professional respect unlike anywhere else. Here, nurses have the unique opportunity to develop a real rapport with patients. You’ll find a family-like environment shared between colleagues and patients alike.

SIH offers:
  • Competitive benefits package
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Loan forgiveness
  • Flex scheduling

We are actively recruiting 75 registered nurses for openings across our system.

Over half of these jobs are due to surgical expansion projects at Memorial Hospital of Carbondale and Herrin Hospital, and new beds in intensive care and progressive care units.

With the addition of our hybrid operating room at Memorial Hospital of Carbondale and successful physician recruitment efforts, SIH offers a variety of new opportunities.
