About

Do you enjoy helping people who are undergoing stressful situations? Are you proactive and outgoing? Are you compassionate and calm? Surgical Waiting Room Liaisons offer information and comfort to families awaiting news of loved ones in surgery.

Provide some calm in the middle of a storm.

Anyone who has had a loved one undergo a surgical procedure knows how long and stressful the wait can feel. Time seems to stand still for family members and caregivers as they wait for information, often feeling frightened and powerless. As a NYM Surgical Liaison, you will offer compassion, care and useful information to caregivers as a calm presence in the surgical waiting area. You will provide an empathetic ear, updates on logistical progress via the patient tracking screen, resolve non-medical concerns and problem solve and advocate on the caregivers’ behalf.

We would love to hear from you if you are: Organized, professional, calm, compassionate, have a positive attitude, a good communicator
