Position & Client Overview:

A small critical access hospital nestled in Alaska’s Inside Passage is seeing a medical technologist/medical laboratory technician (generalist) to work the day shift.

This picturesque harbor town in the Inside Passage is known for its Tlingit culture, wildlife viewing, and exploration on the beautiful Stikine River.
