Position Summary

Kelowna General Hospital’s Echocardiography Department has a career opportunity for a casual Echocardiography Sonographer to join its team of healthcare professionals.

The hospital is a 317 acute bed hospital and one of Interior Health’s two Tertiary Referral Hospitals. Adjacent to Kelowna General is the new Interior Heart & Surgical Centre (IHSC). IHSC provides timely, much needed surgeries to patients who require lifesaving procedures. IHSC is Kelowna General Hospital’s principal surgical site and features:
• 9 specialized Operating Rooms created for Thoracic, Urology, Neurosurgery, Vascular, Plastics, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Ears Nose and Throat, Orthopedics, General and Trauma surgeries.
• 2 dedicated Cardiac ORs
• A Hybrid OR where minimally invasive surgery is performed under the guidance of specialized digital imaging.
• Supporting the training of tomorrow’s surgeons and physicians through an affiliation with the University of BC’s Faculty of Medicine’s Southern Medical Programs.

The Echocardiographer performs diagnostic ultrasound procedures/examinations and related duties working in collaboration with radiologists/cardiologists, physicians and other health care professionals.

We have clinical advisory groups that are working together to ensure best practice throughout Interior Health. Experience the difference of working for the public sector; where it feels good to give back.
