Life at PDS

Come Grow and Thrive Together

A healthy work culture can work wonders. It improves employee satisfaction, enhances productivity, and at PDS, helps all of us focus on delivering a higher level of patient care. One way we achieve that is through ongoing training and development in an environment that recognizes your achievements and helps you be at your best. That’s not a bonus feature. It’s a baseline for building a better place to work.

Work at a Company That Shares Your Values

Shared values form a foundation for building trust, better decision-making, and greater satisfaction. This is never more true than when those values start at the top. PDS Founder and CEO Stephen Thorne IV set forth a behavioral framework called “The We Believes.” It highlights the power of teamwork while honoring individual contributions. We think you’ll find it a big a win for your career and for the patients we serve.
