Mercy Orthopedic Hospital is scheduled to open this fall near James River Freeway and Highway 65.  Laura Starks, director of recruitment for Mercy, says a hiring event tomorrow and Thursday (5/8-5/9) at the MO Career Center is focused on positions there and at Mercy Hospital Springfield...

"Those positions include environmental services, food services.  We have opportunities available in our surgical areas such as scrub techs, and then we're also looking for individuals with experience and interest in our materials management.  That includes shipping and docking as well as sterilization of our surgical instruments," she said.

Starks says, while experience is preferred, on the job training is offered.  She says they're hiring now for the Orthopedic Hospital so individuals can be trained and ready to start when the facility opens in the fall.

Another hiring event next week will fill positions in the area of patient care.  It's scheduled for May 14 and 16 from 10 to 4 at the MO Career Center.
