St. Lawrence Health

SLH Nursing

Caring, Learning, and Growing with SLH 

Being a nurse is more than a job.

Nurses with St. Lawrence Health have the opportunity to work in one of our three hospitals, in an off-site specialty office, or take on the responsibility to serve in multiple locations.

We are an organization that does more than create jobs, SLH offers the opportunity for a career you can grow in and be proud of what you do every single day. While we are located in rural Northern New York, we offer educational and professional opportunities found in larger urban areas.
