New Hires

Welcome to Winona Health!

It is with great pleasure that Winona Health welcomes you as a new employee. We are confident that you are embarking on an exciting, personally fulfilling and truly rewarding career. In an effort to ease the process, we have placed new hire information online for you.  If you have questions please contact Human Resources at 507.457.4490.

Background Screening: Winona Health conducts a background check on all new hires. Before we can initiate your background check, we will request private information from you and provide you with a privacy notice regarding the intent.

Immunization Review: All new hires will complete a comprehensive immunization review with an Occupational Health nurse. What you should bring to your appointment:

  • Past immunization (shot) records . If you do not have these they can be obtained from previous employers, schools, health care organizations or doctors.
  • If applicable, any laboratory testing that would prove immunity to Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Varicella (chicken pox) and Hepatitis B.
  • If applicable, proof of one TB skin test within one year of your hire date. If you have a history of past positive TB status, bring all documentation available at the time of your appointment.

License and Certification Verification: If your position requires a valid license or certification to practice please bring a copy.  It will be verified and put on file by Winona Health prior to a new hire’s start date.

What to Expect on Your First Day

You will be scheduled to attend New Employee Orientation (NEO) on your first day of employment. Check in will be in Human Resources. Please refer to the information provided on the onboarding website, to confirm your NEO date and time.  You will receive your employee ID badge during orientation.

A Human Resources representative will be available to welcome and guide you to the location of NEO.  This orientation will provide you with valuable information about our organization, including our culture; mission, vision and values; and our focus on excellence through Continuous Systems Improvement. At orientation you’ll have the opportunity to meet some of Winona Health’s leaders, as well as get to know others who are new to the organization. You will also participate in a “Meet your Manager” session, allowing you to ask any role-specific questions you may have of your manager prior to your first day working in your home department.

Dress Code

As NEO is your first day of work, please dress in business casual attire (no jeans). If you will be attending clinical or computer education as part of your first day, business casual or scrubs are acceptable.  Depending on your role, you may have specific attire, such as scrubs, department issued attire, etc. that will be required to be worn during regular work shifts.  Please check with your manager/supervisor.

Where to Park

You may park in the patient and visitor parking for NEO.  At NEO you will receive information on where to locate staff specific parking.  You will also receive a parking permit which must be displayed on your vehicle(s).

Winona Health requires employees to complete computer based training (CBT) modules online.  New hires will be given access information at NEO.

Completing Your CBT’s

Once you have received access to log onto the intranet, click on “training” to access the computer based learning platform. Remember to pay close attention to due dates, as some modules are required before you are allowed to begin working in your new role.
