    Physicals are not pass/fail. They are screenings. You're fine. Hospital employees have all the same ailments as non-employees.

    Maryjean is right - it's just a health screening - I have a heart murmur (had it since birth) as well a metabolic syndrome. It only became an issue once with an employer who insisted I bring a note from my PCP stating I wasn't going to have a heart attack on the job. My PCP would not write this but sent a letter saying my health was good and there were no concerns with being able to do the job.
