In preparation for opening a new hospital unit in late spring, the San Antonio State Hospital (SASH) is hosting an on-campus in-person job fair Thursday to fill more than 250 vacant positions immediately.

The job fair is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., April 22 at 6711 S. New Braunfels Ave.

Priority hiring is focused on the registered nursing staff. Registered nurses will receive a $2,500 sign-on bonus. Additionally, for the psychiatric nursing assistants, no experience is needed. You can qualify for a $1,000 sign-on bonus with training provided by the hospital.

Located in South San Antonio, the hospital provides in-patient psychiatric care for Texans in a variety of environments to include forensic, geriatric and residential units. A new 40-bed adult psychiatric unit will open in late spring in addition to a new 300-bed psychiatric hospital opening in 2024.

The group offers many benefits to employees, including career advancement, paid training, health and dental insurance, and paid vacation and sick leave.

There are also openings for housekeeping staffers, psychologists, food service workers and maintenance staff members.
