Why Mayo Clinic

The Sparta Med Surg Department seeks motivated and autonomous nursing staff to join our dynamic team. The department cares for a wide range of patients of all ages. Services include observation, inpatient, complex wound care, scheduled outpatients for injections, infusions, and chemo pump disconnects. Hospice and respite care are also offered.

Goal of the program is to achieve a state of wellness such that the patient can return to their previous living arrangement or better.
