Why You Want to Work Here

ECRMC by the numbers

ECRMC is an acute medical center that has served the healthcare needs of the Imperial Valley since 1956. Thanks to a recent $44 million expansion, what started as a 34-bed licensed hospital has grown into a 161-bed, state-of-the-art facility. The expansion allowed for construction of a new trauma center and rooftop heliport for superior care. Additionally, ECRMC offers several outpatient centers, conveniently located throughout the cities of El Centro and Calexico.

A place you can grow 

With hands-on training and education, ECRMC is the perfect place to work if you’re interested in growing your talent or learning new clinical techniques.

Dedicated to the community

To ECRMC, healthcare is about more than equipment and facilities — it’s about community, a familiar face and trust. They’re committed to giving back to the community and offer a variety of events and initiatives, like an annual women’s health and paint night and their annual asthma boot camp for children.

Meet an Aya Nurse Who’s Been There

I love it here at El Centro. I feel like they’re treating me like staff, like family. It’s just a welcoming environment for travelers, especially for minority nurses and male nurses like me. You feel a sense of community; everybody works together for a common cause.

We have a nurse educator who goes out of her way to help. There’s always somebody there for anything you may need. I’ve had a few bad days, not because of the staff — it was because of the workload— but there’s always somebody to take over and help me out.

I met a lot of travel nurses back home in New York. They kept telling me to try California because the patient ratios are much better. I thought it was just a rumor they tell you to try to get you. But no, they’re serious about the ratios. I get my breaks too!

Travel nursing has worked out really well with my schedule. I’ve been a barber too since I was 16 and I’m also a lieutenant in the United States Navy reserves. El Centro has been great with working around my schedule. I’m renewing again next week!
