Why I work at Covenant Health:

I choose to work at Covenant Health because the organization’s core values align with my personal values. This alignment is a non-negotiable for me because in oncology we make complex clinical, technological, and personal decisions with our patients every day. At Covenant Health, we can confidently make these complex decisions knowing that the organization around us will always support the care team in putting the patient first. This culture and confidence enables me and the Thompson team to deliver the care our patients and community deserve.
