LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- With COVID-19 numbers rising every day, CHI Health is looking to relieve health care workers.

CHI Health’s Dr. Cliff Robertson said Tuesday that they are planning on hiring seasonal workers in the coming months to help out health care workers.

Dr. Robertson says that these seasonal workers do not have to be in the health care field to help.

College students, graduate students, and anyone else looking to lend a hand at CHI are all welcome. Many of the workers will be utilized in administrative positions in order to free-up clinical staff to help their patients.

“This new role will go a long way toward freeing up our nurses. Now, more than ever, supporting our medical teams is crucial to the health of our communities. We need our nurses, respiratory therapists and other health care providers doing the things only they can do—providing expert medical care to our patients,” said Dr. Cliff Robertson. “Our new assistants will be helping their friends and neighbors during this historic time. It’s also an incredible learning opportunity for those interested in pursuing careers in the health care field.”

This position will pay $17/hour. The schedules for these positions will be flexible. A high school diploma or GED is preferred, but not required. Paid seasonal positions for those with prior health care experience are also available.

CHI Health is looking to hire as many seasonal workers as they can as COVID-19 numbers rise statewide. If you’re interested in applying, you can go here.
