You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Home Health Physical Therapist.
You know youâ™re a guest in someoneâ™s home and you tread carefully but confidently.
You know how to make small talk and answer big questions. You know how to soothe. How to hug. How to travel, and laugh, easily.
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.
SCL Home Health is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. With clientele throughout the greater Denver area, we develop meaningful relationships through one-on-one care and facilitate optimal patient outcomes.
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.
