Why you want to work there

IT workers at this pediatric healthcare provider in Philadelphia have ample opportunity to innovate. One such opportunity arose with a recent project that bridged two disparate electronic medical record systems to enable radiologists at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to read images and interpret studies for patients seen at Virtua, a New Jersey-based healthcare provider. The IT department also sponsors several community service initiatives, and employees can use company time to participate in community aid initiatives.
