Job Description

At UCHealth, we do things differently - Greeley Hospital

 

Greeley is true Colorado living. Nature lover? The 21-mile Poudre River Trail has your name on it and an hour and a half drive to Rocky Mountain National Park beckons. Craft beer fanatic? Even if you aren't, you can become one in Greeley, which boasts 5 craft breweries. Culture enthusiast? Greeley's sprawling live entertainment scene is for you - check out the nearly nightly shows at the Moxi theater. The town is peppered with the eclectic restaurants and coffee shops that are college-town staples, thanks to the presence of The University of Northern Colorado. Events like Neighborhood Nights, the Festival of Trees, and Greeley Bikes all contribute to Greeley's robust community. Roughly an hour drive from Denver and Fort Collins, Colorado and even Cheyenne, Wyoming means Greeley is truly central to everything one could hope for.
