Hiring - Physical Therapist

By Altra Healthcare - August 14, 2017

Altra Healthcare has openings for fulltime Physical Therapists to work in inpatient or outpatient. Our PT's develop, coordinate and utilize select knowledge and skills in planning, organizing and implementing programs for the care of patients whose ability to function is impaired or threatened by disease or injury. The PT’s primary focus is on those individuals with neuromuscular, skeletal, integumentary, pulmonary and cardiovascular disorders and evaluating the level of function related to these disorders.

Our PTs work with a multi-disciplinary team including OT and SLP in a 49-bed acute care hospital and 10-bed critical access hospital. We offer continuing education to all our therapists to ensure they are up to date and providing the best possible care. We do not have productivity requirements at SLV Health. We want our therapist to focus on patient care and outcomes not productivity. If you are looking for a setting that is patient-focused and team-orientated then SLV Health is an excellent fit. The care environment offers hour-long patient treatments in private patient treatment rooms in order to provide quality one-on-one patient care. We continually invest in updated equipment and treatment modalities to ensure we give our patients top-rated care.

$10,000 sign-on and relocation bonuses available. Altra also offers an attractive benefits package, including CEU reimbursement.
