Call for Reserve Staff at NCH
Nantucket Cottage Hospital is calling on any active or retired healthcare professionals on the island to sign up to be part of a reserve staff of clinicians if the need arises during the COVID-19 pandemic response.
We are seeking any retired or active physicians, nurses, techs, or anyone who has a medical background to let us know if they are on-island and willing to help NCH if called upon.
We are able to do emergency credentialing at NCH as the state of Massachusetts has relaxed the rules around this process.
Please contact us at 508-825-8118 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing be part of our reserve staff during this challenging time. Thank you.
As a note to our regular employees who may be experiencing a reduction in work right now due to the deferral of certain elective procedures and visits, the hospital’s first priority is to find opportunities for you to be reassigned elsewhere in the hospital and to keep as many regular staff members employed as possible. If all regular (non-reserve) employees are reassigned and the hospital still has a need for staffing, the reserve staff would be available only as a last resort.
