Our employees enjoy coming to work because of the Virtua Experience. It's a culture of respect, support, continual learning and a commitment to excellence that permeates everything we do, at every level.
As a member of our team, you’ll help us cultivate our culture of caring—a philosophy based on our simple yet profound mission of putting patients first. This mission, encompassing our values, vision and STAR Initiative, will guide you in everything you do. And whether your future with Virtua lies with our nursing, allied health or support staff, we’ll continually inspire you to have a positive impact on our patients by sharing our successes with every member of our team.
Another invaluable facet to our culture of caring is open communication. With Virtua, you’ll enjoy an environment that encourages the free exchange of ideas and perspectives between employees and an open-door policy with management. You’ll also be able to express your ideas for bettering our organization through Virtua town meetings and Employee Opinion Surveys. Because at Virtua, every team member has a voice.
Because our success is attributed to our employees, we have a vested interest in their career growth. We foster training and development in an environment that helps them advance their performance and careers.
At Virtua, we understand that people shine their brightest when they have clear direction and common goals. Launched in 2000, our STAR Initiative provides our employees with a tried and true blueprint for ensuring quality care and achieving patient satisfaction. It also provides a solid foundation for our culture, so our team members know exactly what’s expected of them and can set appropriate milestones throughout their development. In short, our STAR Initiative works.

An essential part of the Virtua culture is a commitment to embracing all cultures. We deeply appreciate the importance of incorporating a wide variety of personal perspectives in caring for patients. It’s why we’re able to understand the unique cultural nuances of our patients and consistently meet their medical and personal needs.
We want you to bring your perspectives and experiences to our team—to enrich our culture with yours. We want you to know that your background is appreciated and valued.
