This is a PRN position Supporting our Inpatient Team and occasionally assisting our Outpatient Team. Our clinic serves a diverse population and sees all types of patients.
Our Outpatient Physical Medicine and Rehab department consists of PT’s, OTR’s, SLP’s, massage therapists and rehabilitation aides. PTs conduct one-hour evaluations for new patients and 30-45 minute treatment sessions for returning patients. One hour of documentation time is built into the schedule (30 minutes before lunch and 30 minutes at the end of the day). We are open Monday-Friday and our hours are typically 6:30 am-6:30 pm. We treat a wide variety of acute and chronic orthopedic and neurological diagnoses for patients of all ages (we have therapists who specialize in pediatrics). PT treatments are typically a blend of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise.
