Vaccine boom leads to hiring surge at Bronson Hospital

The medical group is looking to increase its workforce amid a rise in demand for vaccines.

It’s a good problem to have: So many people are signing up for vaccine appointments with Bronson Medical Group that it needs to hire more people to deal with the workload.

“Our Portage Road facility, it has been a very busy clinic and is booked out to May,” said Carla Herbert, Bronson’s director of operations, in an interview with WOOD TV 8.

So far, Bronson has administered more than 48,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines across its various southern Michigan locations. That number is expected to rise dramatically over the next month.

Bronson is specifically looking to hire medical assistants, pharmacy techs, and patient representatives. There are full- and part-time positions available. All are temporary, but some positions have the possibility of continuing even after the current vaccine push is over.
