Our Staff

The hallmark of Virginia Mason's nearly 6,000 staff members is a spirit of teamwork.

Unlike most hospitals, Virginia Mason's physicians actually work for the medical center. These professionals are assisted and supported by health care professionals, as well as administrative and technical folks who work like a well-oiled machine to provide exceptional patient care.

This staffing model is the exception, not the norm, in health care. We believe that having one staff, working side-by-side, every day, results in superior patient care.

As one of its highest objectives, the medical center works to create a workplace that is satisfying, enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding. Recognition of this includes winning the Matrix Corporate Excellence Award from Women in Communications Inc. for being an outstanding place for women to work.

Staff facts:

  • Virginia Mason currently employs approximately 6,000 people.
