Are you ready to make a big difference to someone small? Then CHKD, located in the heart of the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, is the place for you. Behind every service is a family of talented employees dedicated to providing the highest quality of pediatric care.
CHKD Health System is committed to the health and well being of our patients, our families, our visitors and our staff. Nicotine use is a proven health and safety hazard and is inconsistent with our healthcare mission. The use of nicotine products and exposure to secondhand smoke has serious adverse effects.
As such, all CHKD Health System locations are tobacco free, inside and out.
In keeping with our healthcare mission and as a health care leader, we must lead by example in maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all. Offers of employment are contingent upon the successful completion of a criminal background check, drug screening, nicotine test, and employment background review.
