Southwest Florida, like the rest of the country, needs workers, especially in the medical field. On Thursday, both NCH and Lee Health have job fairs.

Lee Health says it has the highest number of job openings it has ever had. It is currently hiring around 100 people each week, using any resources it can find.

“We currently have over 2,300 open jobs, so we’re sourcing vigorously again through several forums: interviewing, job fairs, virtual recruiting, leveraging social media,” said Jennifer Thayer, manager of Lee Health workforce planning and development.

Lee Health’s registered nurse job fair takes place Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Skilled Nursing Facility – Gulf Coast Medical Center, located at 13960 Plantation Road.

NCH is holding job fairs at NCH North Naples Hospital, located at 11190 Health Park Blvd., Thursday and May 2 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and at NCH Downtown Baker Hospital, located at 350 7th St. N. in Naples, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
