Erie Shores Healthcare in Leamington is looking to beef up its front lines in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hospital is getting set to host its first ever virtual job fair.

Human Resources Manager, Melissa Simas, says there are several full-time and part-time openings that need to be filled immediately.

"We are currently looking for registered nurses, nurse practitioners, RPNs, house keeping, clerks, sterilization personnel and a casual position for a medical laboratory technologist," she says.

Simas says a number of factors have resulted in a need for more staff.

"Some of them are just as a result of some regular turnover, but also some upstaffing. We've got a new system going live so we're having to upstaff for that as well as COVID," she says.

Simas says they'd like to hire as many local people as possible.

"We really want to engage our community and we want to make sure that care stays in our community," she says. "I know it's a difficult travel to Windsor sometimes if you live in the community so we really do want people engaged in making sure that care stays within our community."

Two days have been set aside for the virtual job fair — September 26 and 28.

More information and how to apply can be found on the Erie Shores Healthcare Facebook page.
