Hear from Our Employees
I continue to work at Hillside because of the flexibility in scheduling, and empathy and understanding that family matters. Hillside has seen me through a divorce and spending a week in the ICU with my daughter. I had to learn how to manage being a single mom, work full time, attend all the specialist appointments for my daughter, and be there for their extracurricular activities. I could not have accomplished that without the encouragement and flexibility of Hillside. Since then, I have moved on to a supervisor position and hope that I can offer the support to others that I was given.
“The environment is positive, and the diversity of the company is like no other. You truly feel like a team.”
“I’ve been at Hillside almost 32 years and I’ve never been bored — there are so many opportunities and always something new and exciting going on.”
“I work at Hillside because it presents opportunities to make a difference. I’m encouraged to share new ideas. I like that there’s opportunity for growth.”
“To be able to walk with other families through their journeys — to help them have hope, to be encouraged — I’m able to do that at Hillside, and I’m very grateful.”
I have been working at Hillside for 20 years! There are a lot of opportunities for growth and they have great benefits.
I’ve built my career at Hillside as a nurse and love working here with a skilled, compassionate, inter-disciplinary care team. If you are a nurse, or know a nurse looking to make a difference in a child’s life, consider joining the Hillside family!
