You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Oncology Nurse Navigator.

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.


This role supports the Cancer Center team located on the Campus of Good Samaritan Medical Center.

Good Samaritan Medical Center is part of Intermountain Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care.

We're especially proud of our people, who helped make us one of America's 100 Best Hospitals according to Healthgrades.

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, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

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