A career at UC Davis Health System means being a part of something extraordinary: an internationally respected institution that improves lives and transforms health care, at home and around the globe.

Northern California’s only academic health center is also one of the top in the country, with a nationally ranked 619-bed acute-care teaching hospital and medical school, a 1000-member physician’s group, renowned specialty centers and the new Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing. The health system is part of UC Davis, a top-10 U.S. public research university and member of the world-class University of California system.

Our employees are the backbone of our organization and the source of our proven reputation for delivering the highest-quality clinical care, finding new treatments and cures, educating future leaders and advancing community health.

In return, they enjoy the excellent benefits of a top-tier public institution, the superior quality of life in California’s capital region – and the unique ability to impact individual lives directly and create better health for countless more, just by going to work.

Improving lives and transforming health care

UC Davis School of Medicine, UC Davis Medical Center and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing occupy a beautiful 140-acre campus in central Sacramento, a city of more than 450,000 and capital of one of America’s largest, most diverse and most influential states. The campus is minutes from California’s State Capitol and a half hour from the university’s Davis campus, in the heart of a metro area that exceeds 2 million residents.

The health system serves as a key referral center for severe, complex conditions across a fast-growing service area that includes 33 counties and 6 million residents in Northern California and the state’s Central Valley. It is home to inland Northern California’s only Level I trauma center, the region’s full-service, nationally ranked children’s hospital and some 700 specialists trained in more than 150 medical fields. The burn treatment center is the largest in Northern California. Formerly called the UC Davis Regional Burn Center, the new center reflects the name of the Firefighters Burn Institute, which raised $2 million through the “Fill the Boot” and other fundraising efforts to make this expanded new burn center at UC Davis Medical Center a reality.

Beyond California, the health system plays a leading role in clinical breakthroughs, research discoveries and policy changes that help resolve local and global health problems and attract nationwide and worldwide attention.

A healthier world through bold innovation

The health system is expanding in both size and stature, with square footage on the Sacramento campus increasing nearly threefold since 1990 to coincide with our growing national reputation:

  • U.S. News and World Report continually ranks UC Davis Medical Center and UC Davis School of Medicine among America’s top 50 hospitals and medical schools.
  • The medical center is also Sacramento’s top hospital in U.S. News rankings, and consumers consistently name it the area’s most-preferred hospital for overall quality and image.
  • UC Davis School of Medicine research funding has more than quadrupled in recent years, and the school achieved top-40 U.S. status for National Institutes of Health funding.
  • A new surgery and emergency services pavilion completed in 2010 makes the medical center one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the country. Recent additions also include a new telehealth center and expansions of the pediatric intensive care unit and cancer center.
  • UC Davis Cancer Center is one of just 41 U.S. centers to earn “comprehensive” status from the National Cancer Institute – the world’s most prestigious honor in oncology.
  • The internationally renowned UC Davis MIND Institute neurodevelopmental research center is a leader or key partner in several of the nation’s largest, most comprehensive and top-ranked autism studies.
  • The university opened a $62 million Institute for Regenerative Cures in 2010 and has nearly 150 scientists working on stem cell-related research projects.
  • The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing was launched through the nation’s largest grant for nursing education, a $100 million commitment from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
  • UC Davis Health System is one of the region’s largest employers and a major driver of economic prosperity in Northern California, according to economic analyses.

A reputation for contributions to society

UC Davis ranks among Washington Monthly’s top 10 U.S. universities based on our contributions to the public good such as social mobility, research and service. The UC Davis Health System consistently earns community and industry awards for community service and partnership, diversity practices, environmental excellence, technology and more.

Diverse and inclusive

The medical center received national honors for efforts to improve diversity and is a recognized leader in creating an inclusive environment for LGBT patients and employees. Sacramento itself was labeled one of America’s most integrated cities by Time and the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University in the early 2000s.

Commitment to customer service

The health system has an extensive commitment to compassionate, patient-centered care and exceptional customer service, and earns high marks for satisfaction and customer-friendliness.

Excellent benefits

In addition to the distinction of being part of one of the largest and most acclaimed institutions in higher education, University of California offers employees some of the most attractive employment packages available – in many instances offering benefits, services and opportunities that others can’t match.

Professional development

Institutional support for professional development includes local employee training and development programs, and flexible UC work and leave policies that make it possible to pursue educational and training programs while employed.

Superior quality of life

California’s capital region boasts exceptional quality of life, with a rich urban environment that provides both big-city amenities and outstanding affortability. Located in a leafy valley of scenic rivers and canopies of trees at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Sacramento includes downtown skyscrapers, Victorian architecture, restaurants and shops, a vibrant arts scene and plentiful outdoor adventure.

Sacramento’s Mediterranean climate helps it continually rank in the top ten sunniest cities in the U.S.,  and outdoors enthusiasts find it ideal for year-round recreation at nearby rivers, mountains and parks such as the 30-mile American River Parkway greenbelt and bike trail.  Fishing, boating and rafting are popular on the 1000 miles of waterways around Sacramento and the Delta.

The area’s rich diversity also feeds a lively cultural scene to please any palate. Sacramento is home to an annual jazz festival, the California State Fair, professional sports franchises, wineries and monthly art walks.

The region offers one of the most affordable housing markets in the state, and a variety of reasonably-priced housing options are available in neighborhoods within easy reach by foot, bicycle or public transportation.

Nursing Values

UC Davis Health System’s nursing values reflect a commitment to extraordinary compassion, courage and integrity in every situation.  UC Davis nurses consistently demonstrate excellence in the delivery of patient-focused, compassionately delivered care and promotion of their professional nursing practice.

Nurses choose UC Davis for the excitement, support, cultural diversity and professional opportunities found within a leading academic health center.  Working in a collaborative and inter-professional environment, rich in camaraderie, teamwork, mentoring and mutual support, nurses are encouraged to be autonomous, take initiative and challenge the status quo.

Primary Nursing

UC Davis utilizes a primary nursing care delivery model.  As an integral part of the patient’s health care team, primary nurses advocate for patient needs and provide continuity of care, keeping the patient and family at the center of focus to create an environment that promotes caring and healing.

 

 

Awards

Consumers again rate UC Davis Medical Center as the region’s best

For the 14th consecutive year, UC Davis Medical Center has been selected as a Consumer Choice Award winner by the National Research Corporation (NRC). The 2012 award recognizes a single hospital in each of 300 markets nationwide that health-care consumers choose as providing the highest-quality health care.

UC Davis Medical Center named 2012 Leapfrog Top Hospital

UC Davis Medical Center ranks among The Leapfrog Group’s list of Top Hospitals for 2012, a distinction that places UC Davis among the top 10 percent of hospitals participating in the national survey. The award recognizes hospitals for their exceptional performance in critical areas of patient safety and quality, including mortality rates for certain common procedures, infection rates, established policies and procedures to prevent errors, and measures of efficient use of resources.

UC Davis Medical Center is among the nation’s Top 50 Most Social Media Friendly Hospitals

UC Davis Medical Center is ranked among the nation’s Top 50 Most Social Media Friendly Hospitals in a new 2013 ranking of hospitals nationwide.

I’d like to know if it is appropriate for the Director of Nursing to threaten your license as blackmail for purposes of mandating nurses to stay at work?

Answer:
Miscommunication or not communicating a concern in appropriate manner can lead to distrust.
Make sometime to sit down with the Director of Nursing to review your concern if you feel threatened or blackmailed.
Follow the chain of command set by your organization and human resources for matters such as this.
I hope this helps.

Build Your Career On A History of Excellence and a Future Defined by Collaboration and Innovation

VCU Health is a comprehensive system of care and pioneer of health. From our very first years to our most recent advancements, we are driven to learn more, dig deeper, teach passionately and never rest in order to be a true leader in discovering what’s possible in health and recovery.

We have it all. Five schools, hospitals, a community health center, convenient outpatient locations, dedicated research teams, and facilities and valued partners in every field. We have more than 750 physicians in 200 specialties, the area’s only NCI-designated cancer center, VCU Massey Cancer Center, and a full-service children’s hospital, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Together through our VCU Medical Center, Community Memorial Hospital in South Hill and Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, we:

  • Served almost 112,000 people in our emergency departments
  • Admitted nearly 50,000 to our inpatient and observation beds
  • Took care of more than 640,000 in our outpatient clinics
  • Advanced the learning of more than 5,000 health science students across all disciplines

With our leading-edge technology, unparalleled problem-solving and legacy of academically driven excellence, we’re leading what’s possible in your health, recovery and life.

In the pursuit of excellence, we never rest.

Yes, we’re bragging, but we think we have earned the right. Here are just a few of our most recent accomplishments:

  • VCU Medical Center has been recognized as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia and the Richmond metro area by U.S. News & World Report for 2015-16, ranking in the top 50 in the country for Orthopedics (#34), Nephrology (#48) and Cardiology and Heart Surgery (#49)
  • We earned special recognition from The Joint Commission as a 2015 Top Performing Hospital on quality measures as well as ranking in the top five institutions in the nation for quality in the treatment of heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care, children’s asthma and perinatal care
  • 10 of our units have received the Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses
  • VCU Medical Center was reverified as the only Level I Trauma Center in the region, providing unparalleled trauma care for those who need it most

We are amazing because our people are.

At VCU Health System, our most important assets are not bricks and mortar; they are our team members … all 11,000+ of them. Our workforce is diverse, dedicated and talented. Our team members continue to earn local, regional and national awards and accolades, which is an indicator that they are happy and feel supported working here.
