Here at Plumas District Hospital, we are extremely proud to offer obstetrics services to our patients. We are California’s smallest OB program, and that designation comes with its own challenges for mothers in our community. Without our OB program, expectant mothers would need to travel 1.5 hours, sometimes in the snow and rain, to the nearest obstetrics provider. Many expecting mothers can’t afford to travel that far or even make it to the next nearest hospital in time for a safe delivery. It is crucial for the long-term health of our community, and the lives of the babies and mothers in Plumas County, that we continue to practice Obstetrics at Plumas District Hospital.
This is where you come in. We are searching for experienced Labor and Delivery Registered Nurses, and Certified Nurse Midwifes who are resourceful, tenacious, and capable of practicing in our rural model. If you desire to become a crucial part of a high performing, compassionate team, and have an immediate, powerful impact in our community please reach out to us. We are offering a $10,000 sign-on bonus to new hires in this role who have a minimum of two years of experience working in this capacity with a commitment of 3 years.Certified Nurse Midwife, Opportunities
"We met our son Titus a little after midnight on March 20th. He was perfect, and crying, and everything you want your first child to be. In my stupor, I didn’t realize my doctor was hard at work trying to stop my hemorrhaging. I was just holding my new boy. I lost a lot of blood, and all I wanted was some apple juice and some time with my new family. That time came in the early hours of the morning, and all three of us got some rest. As I held on to my son’s tiny hand with all five fingers, I remember thinking; I am exactly where I want to be."
"The small town care is what I appreciate so much - the connections you’re able to make. It’s very different from what happens to you in a bigger city (speaking from experience). You’re more than a patient here. You walk the halls of this hospital, and you know everyone - more like family."
"While any mom can tell you childbirth is not fun, I really feel that I had as good an experience as possible at PDH. It was the perfect combination of medical support when necessary, combined with a small, personal, warm and supportive setting that allowed me to give birth naturally to two healthy baby boys.
"Throughout both pregnancies and the entire experience all of my questions were answered, I was never made to feel like a burden, and I felt safe and well taken care of. Everyone was so helpful and kind. We will forever be grateful for both of the labor and delivery experiences at Plumas District Hospital."
"On the way in to school, I started to have contractions, but I thought, “No problem, this could last for days, or it could be Braxton Hicks (false contractions),” so I still wasn’t concerned. By second period, though, the contractions were getting pretty close together, and they were getting strong. My principal said, “Go!”
