Why I work for Covenant Health:

“I believe in Covenant Health, not only because that is where I and my family receive all our medical care, but because they believe in me. Throughout my time at Covenant Health, I have felt like they wanted to see me succeed, because in turn, I could help the organization succeed. I have never felt more supported or appreciated any place I have worked like I do here. I am loyal to Covenant Health and its mission and values because Covenant Health makes sure I have the ability  to put them into action.
