Sonora, Ca — Organizers of today´s Job Fair at Sonora Regional Medical Center say it drew seven times more individuals than the last similar event held three year´s ago.

“I am very excited by the turnout,” says Medical Center Recruiter Cory Ferrier.We had approximately 75 to 80 walk through our doors today.”

Recently, the Hospital announced it has 172 job openings. Most of which are related to the transition of Tuolumne General Hospital.As of last night, we had 441 applications which have come in within the last 21 days,” says Vice President of Business and Marketing Doug Duffield.In a typical month we will get anywhere between 125 and 150 applications.”

The Hospital has positions open in almost every department including: admitting, nursing, clinics, radiology, laboratory and maintenance.

Duffield notes that 10 registered nurses stopped by the Job Fair that live in the area but currently work in the Valley. He says this is a field of high demand, so it was nice to see they were exploring the opportunities that the community has available.
