You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Physical Therapist.
Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.
You know how to move fast. You know how to stay organized. You know how to have fun.
Youâ™re equally comfortable with communication, supervising/managing, medical terminology and patient care.
Youâ™re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.
In this role, you will have the opportunity to support our Inpatient Team. The conditions treated include orthopedic, stroke, trauma, cardiac, general medical and ICU patients needing early mobility.
Platte Valley Medical Center is a partner of SCL Health which is a nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 98-bed community hospital is proud to offer comprehensive, integrated care focused on holistic health. We are proud to extend the mission of SCL Health by providing care for the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ™ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together weâ™ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ™ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.
Weâ™ll laugh at each otherâ™s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ™ll hello and high five. Weâ™ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
Weâ™re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
As a Physical Therapist you need to know how to:
Conduct physical therapy evaluations, program planning, and treatments for hospital inpatients and outpatients.
Participate in patient education, department budget and equipment planning, program development and department charting, charging, and scheduling activities.
Work independently with limited supervision.
We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:
Graduation from an accredited program in physical therapy, required
Knowledge and theory of physical therapy practice as necessary to provide care based on physical, psychosocial, educational, safety, and related criteria, appropriate to the age of the patients served in your assigned service area, required
Active license to practice physical therapy in the State of Colorado or a temporary license or permit to practice physical therapy in the State of Colorado, required
Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association, required
At least one year of physical therapy experience in the acute care setting, preferred
Your next move.
Now that you know more about being a Physical Therapist on our team we hope youâ™ll join us. At SCL Health youâ™ll reaffirm every day how much you love this work, and why you were called to it in the first place.
