Former U.S. Marines SSGT — Security Forces

We could explain all of the best reasons for you to become part of our team, but we believe that our military veteran employees say it best. Here is why our very own David Patterson enjoys being part of the team at Sarasota Memorial Health Care System:

"People look for stability, especially coming out of the military. Consistency and a stable home life attracted me to healthcare, and working for a nonprofit such as Sarasota Memorial Health Care was the best fit for me, personally and professionally. From the moment a candidate attends our orientation program, they're provided excellent resources and educator support.

"From military to healthcare, I have seen first-hand a similar culture and a sense of togetherness. The transition seemed effortless as I felt supported while pursuing my education, and the flexible schedule was ideal during this transition. In the military, you were taught to depend on your fellow soldier. Working at SMH, we have a similar mentality that we are a team."
