Join our Tri-State Family Today!

Hear from our Chief Nursing Officer, Jackie Mossakowski, and several Tri-State Memorial Hospital nurses on why they love working at Tri-State! We consider ourselves a family and we want you to be a part of it!

Tri-State has a culture of patient-centered care. I love that. As a nurse, I try to take care of each patient with the mindset that if this was my family, how would I want them treated? I feel that each nurse does this to the best of their abilities.
