We’re a Little Different
Our mission is clear. We bring to life a healing ministry through our compassionate care and exceptional service.
We don’t believe in jobs at Mercy, we believe in careers that match the unique gifts of unique individuals; careers that not only make the most of your skills and talents, but also your heart.
At Mercy, you’ll feel our supportive community every step of your day, especially the tough ones. We’re a team and love working that way. That team is expanding, and we currently have exceptional opportunities to help our communities grow.
Coordinate, support and enhance the existing SANE programs in Northwest Arkansas to promote consistent, professional and victim-oriented medical and forensic response and treatment of the sexual assault patient throughout the region. This coordination may include (but is not limited to):
- Building and maintain the infrastructure of each agency’s SANE program
- Building and maintaining a coordinated SANE team to collectively serve the forensic needs of the Consortium
- Building and maintaining alliances with appropriate outside agencies to which victims may present
Each career at Mercy represents unique members of our caring ministry’s “body”, working together for the health and strength of the whole. To achieve our goals, we need all the parts functioning at their best and this requires the specific qualifications that you’ll bring with you:
