You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as Speech Language Pathologist.
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 when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.
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.

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 an SLP you need to know how to:
Carry out speech therapy evaluations, program planning and treatments for hospital inpatients and outpatients.
Work closely with the Physical Medicine Director in coordinating speech therapy activities with other hospital disciplines and in developing a program for department expansion, community and physician marketing, budget needs, and department administration.
Work independently with limited contact with other Speech Language Pathologists.
We hire people, not resumes. But we also expect excellence, which is why we require:
Masterâ™s degree in speech pathology
Current license to practice speech-language pathology in the State of Colorado
Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC) and achieve clinical competencies by the required clinical internships
Strong Clinical Fellows with demonstrated competence may work under supervision of a Speech Language Pathologist while completing the fellowship year
Current BLS certification endorsed by the American Heart Association by completion of the unit-specific orientation and before working independently
At least six (6) months of experience in the acute care setting, including experience with Modified Barium Swallow Studies
Your next move.
Now that you know more about being an SLP 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.
