Drug, tobacco, background & COVID screening.
Houston Methodist is committed to improving the health of our patients, employees and communities around us. As a health care provider, it’s our responsibility to promote a healthier environment for our employees. Job seekers will be tested for nicotine usage, including nicotine gum and patches, during the post-offer physical.
If a job seeker tests positive for nicotine use, the offer will be rescinded and individuals will be given the opportunity to participate in a free Houston Methodist-provided tobacco cessation program. Job seekers wishing to reapply after testing positive for nicotine may do so 90 days after the date the initial offer was rescinded. In addition, as we continue to protect the health of our community, all new hires will be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and booster, or submit proof of previous vaccination.
