Hospital maintenance employees are responsible for maintaining the extensive heating, air-conditioning, refrigeration, and ventilation systems in hospitals. Some other duties could include minor welding, minor plumbing and electrical repairs, and minor carpentry repairs to walls, roofs, windows, or ceilings. In this job you could wind up working independently or as part of a crew. You will also need to be able to work off-hours or on shifts that can include holidays, nights, or weekends. Because a hospital never closes, there must always be maintenance workers on staff just as there are health care providers. Proper licenses and certifications will be required. Most positions include a comprehensive Union benefits package and competitive salaries.
