Exceptional Care That Transforms.

New Employee Onboarding

Memorial's Professional Development staff is here to ensure that every new hire is fully equipped with the information they need to be successful on our team.

Onboarding Day is your official first day as a new hire at Memorial. During onboarding, we introduce Memorial policies, standards, and culture.

The experience includes an overview of Memorial’s systems and resources, including HealthStream Learning Center (HLC), which is the hospital’s learning management system.

Following Onboarding Day, new team members will complete an orientation specific to their role.

Before Onboarding Day

Consult your personal email account for a welcome message from HR containing all instructions, including your onboarding location and pre-requisite eLearning course requirements.

There is a curriculum of eLearning courses to be completed at home through HealthStream, our web-based learning management system. Instructions for access are included in the HR welcome email. Or, download the HealthStream Access Instructions PDF.

Bring copies of any resuscitation cards you may have.
