  • Information regarding 2015 W-2 forms

    Centura Health associates may now view their W-2 forms online on the ADP website. If you chose to have your W-2 mailed, or have not registered on the ADP website, your W-2 will be mailed to your home address.

    Associates who no longer work at Centura Heath will receive their W-2 in the mail, unless they had previously selected to receive their W-2 electronically. In that instance, they will need to access the ADP website to view their tax form.

    If you have questions, please contact the payroll help desk at 303-925-6268.

  • Am I required to apply online in order to be considered for a position?

    Yes, all applicants must apply online to be considered for a position. It is important for applicants to go through our applicant tracking system for reporting purposes and for managing the high-volume of submissions we receive. If you do not have access to the internet, feel free to call 800-390-4166 to make arrangements to come in and apply, or visit a hospital Human Resources office between 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to inquire about using a computer to submit your application online. Not every entity may offer this, so your local library or workforce center is also an option to gain internet access to apply for positions.

  • Can I apply to more than one job posting?

    Yes, you can apply to more than one job posting within Centura Health. Please apply only to those positions you qualify for (being sure to review each job description and corresponding requirements). When speaking with a representative from Centura Health, please be open to discussing job options within our system that fit your experience and expertise. As a large health care network with multiple locations and incredible growth, we are here to help you find the position you are best suited for. Just because you did not get selected for a specific job does not mean you can’t apply and be considered for a similar role if it becomes available.

  • I applied online for a specific job. When can I expect to hear back from a recruiter?

    Our new online application system was designed to deliver frequent communication to applicants whenever movement in the hiring process occurs. For example, you may get an email saying you were selected for an interview and a recruiter will call to set up a time. If you did not qualify for the position, you will get a message saying you were not selected to move forward with the interview process. Any time a status change occurs, you can expect a notification alerting you to activity. If you are curious about the status of your application, please log into your job seeker account to view activity with the positions for which you applied.

  • What if I can't produce any references?

    We do ask every applicant to provide contact information for five references when being considered for a position. However, that does not mean you had to work for (or with) every person you supply as your reference. In addition to supervisors and co-workers, you can use volunteer coordinators/participants, teachers, professors, coaches, team members or classmates who can attest to your experience, skills and character. Ask your contacts in advance if they are okay recommending you for a position and spending 10-15 minutes answering some basic questions (using an online tool) about you and your work. You’ll also want to let your contacts know to expect an email from our reference check vendor-partner requesting their input.

  • Why am I asked my race/ethnic background?

    Candidates are asked to provide this information for voluntary identification purposes. While doing so is not required, Centura Health encourages applicants to disclose this information to assist in making our required governmental reporting as accurate as possible.

FAQs about our tobacco-free hiring policy effective Jan. 1, 2015 (external applicants).

Centura Health associates are revolutionizing an approach to not only treat sickness, but to enable wellness throughout our entire system. This significant change in thinking starts with inspiring our associates to achieve their own level of health and wellness.

  • Who is affected by the updated non-tobacco hiring policy?

    External candidates who are extended a job offer pending a post-job offer screening on or after Jan. 1, 2015 and whose application was received on or after notification of this policy was posted on Centura Health’s Careers website (Nov. 20, 2014). This includes physicians, nurses, volunteers and all other associates. Our new policy for hiring only individuals who are tobacco-free applies across the Centura Health network, including our hospitals, six senior living communities, health neighborhoods, physician practices and clinics, home care and hospice services, Flight For Life® Colorado and all other entities in Colorado and Kansas. For associates employed/or residing in the state of New Mexico, the law prohibits Centura Health from implementing this type of policy. Other states that prohibit denial of employment to tobacco users include NY, ND, NJ, OK, WI, and KY.

  • How will you determine whether a job applicant is a tobacco user?

    Tobacco will be included in the substances tested for during our post job-offer/pre-employment screenings. A positive test for tobacco will eliminate a potential candidate from consideration. Job applicants will be notified of the policy at the point of application and the applicant will have a choice whether to apply for a position with Centura Health.

  • Does this policy apply to current Centura Health associates?

    This change to our existing policies does not apply to current associates. In 2012, we became smoke and tobacco free at all our entities and facilities, so use of tobacco/nicotine products on Centura Health premises are already prohibited.

  • Who is not affected by the new policy?

    Employed associates on or before Dec. 31, 2014 will not be affected. For associates employed or residing in the state of New Mexico, the law prohibits Centura Health from enforcing this type of policy. Other states that prohibit denial of employment to tobacco users include NY, ND, NJ, OK, WI, and KY. Also, our new policy does not apply to our vendors and contracted agency staff. These employees are actually employed by outside agencies with which Centura Health has contracts with to provide additional services and staff. The policy does not apply to employees of other organizations who have service contracts with Centura Health. However, these personnel are subject to our smoke/tobacco-free entity and facility practices.

  • If I test positive for tobacco, will I be denied employment?

    Yes, a positive test for tobacco will eliminate a potential job candidate from consideration and these candidates will be able to reapply for a job at Centura Health after 90 days. If you want quit using tobacco, resources are available to support you.

FAQs about our tobacco-free hiring policy effective Jan. 1, 2015 (internal Centura Health associates applying for transfer).

This change to our existing policies does not apply to associates hired on or before Dec. 31, 2014. We value and respect our current employees who do use tobacco and recognize that tobacco is not illegal. In 2012, Centura Health became smoke and tobacco free at all our entities and facilities, so use of tobacco/nicotine products on Centura Health premises is already prohibited. The decision to not hire tobacco users takes this to the next level and aligns with precedents set by other leading health care systems.

As part of our Mission to nurture the health of the people in our communities, we are committed to creating and maintaining a healthy workplace. We encourage associates to actively manage their health by offering resources through CaféWell, the Centura Health Quitline, the Profile Employee Assistance Program, and the classes and wellness coaching available at Centura Health entities.

  • If a newly-hired associate starts smoking or using tobacco products after being hired, will they be terminated or reprimanded in any way?

    No. We will not monitor new associates to make sure they remain non-smokers. We encourage our associates to actively manage their health and wellness and provide resources to help them be successful through CaféWell, the Centura Health Quitline, the Profile Employee Assistance Program, and the classes and wellness coaching available at Centura Health entities. Associates who elect to participate in Centura Health’s annual Code You Wellness Incentive Program will be rewarded with incentive dollars for testing negative on their cotinine test.
