To help ease your transition to SCL Health, we offer a $15,000 sign on bonus and $5,000 relocation assistance with a two year commitment to qualified candidates.


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Invasive Cardiovascular Technologist / Cath Lab Technologist.

You know how to stay organized and move fast. You respond calmly in high pressure situations.

You’re generous with your thoughts, your partnership and especially your voice in the Cath Lab because your opinion matters.

You’re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.



Our Cath Lab has the highest quality equipment and digital technology, offering both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and interventional procedures.  We use a holistic approach to our heart care as an Accredited Chest Pain Center and our best practices reduce the time we take treating patients during the critical early stages of a heart attack.  Less than one in five Colorado hospitals is able to offer this level of expertise when treating patients with symptoms of a heart attack.

We pride ourselves as being trailblazers, as we were the first hospital in Colorado and one of the first in the nation to offer a minimally-invasive procedure to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the upper leg as well as being one of the first facilities in the United States to have the new Azurion imaging system installed in our Cath Lab. 

Platte Valley Medical Center is a partner of SCL Health which is a nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 98-bed community hospital is proud to offer comprehensive, integrated care focused on holistic health. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and Paid Time Off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.



Together we’ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We’ll honor each other’s dignity and surpass the standards we set. We’ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.

We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
