SCL Health Physical Therapist in Miles City, Montana

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 when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.
You'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.
Both experienced and new graduate Physical Therapists are welcome and encouraged to apply.
We currently have 6 treating Physical Therapists, 2 Occupational Therapists, and 2 Speech Therapists on a team to care for but not limited to Orthopedic, Acute, Pediatric, Neuro patients. We see patients from the very young to the very old in Acute Care, Swing Bed, Outpatient, Residential Living, Post-Surgical, and school settings. Patients are scheduled normally for a one hour evaluation with 45 minute follow-up appointments. Therapists are allowed a flexible schedule to meet their patients' needs. We are blessed with private treatments rooms and a large gym with multiple pieces of treatment equipment including a Biodex, seated and standing elliptical, 3 treadmills, recumbent bike, 2 upright bikes, rower, upper body ergometer, and 3 Nusteps. The specialty areas we are looking to fill include, but are not limited to, Orthopedic, Acute, and Pediatric care.
Holy Rosary Healthcare is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 25-bed acute care hospital, residential living community and clinic provide eastern Montana with comprehensive services in one beautiful location. We are fully dedicated to providing care aligned with community needs, and are proud to treat the poor, the vulnerable, our community 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, we'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 we'll align mission and careers, values and workplace. We'll honor each other's dignity and surpass the standards we set. We'll encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.
We'll laugh at each other's jokes (even the bad ones). We'll hello and high five. We'll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
We're proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
Your day.
As a Physical Therapist you need to know how to:
Interpret physicians' referrals for physical therapy services and select the appropriate diagnostic or prognostic procedures for evaluating patients' disabilities such as muscle weakness, joint limitation, loss of functional ability and sensory deficiency from muscle, nerve, joint and bone diseases and injuries or birth defects.
Perform evaluation procedures and analyze the results to determine the extent of patients' disabilities, establish patient goals, assess functional progress, and to develop and adjust initial and subsequent treatment programs.
Conduct tests of strength, upright motor control, spasticity, sensation, proprioception, visual field, bulbar functions, cognition, gait analysis, body image, electro-diagnostic, and other tests.
Perform complex treatments such as proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, muscle re-education, bulbar treatment and use of plaster splints for positioning a body member.
Confer with physicians regarding evaluation, treatment and progress of patients and express judgments upon which physicians' base decisions to improve the patient's function using a wide variety of surgical or bracing procedures.
Advise allied health personnel, teachers and families regarding patients' progress and discharge plans. Participate on an interdisciplinary team and report on assigned patients' condition and progress.
Supervise patient care treatments and procedures delegated or assigned to a Physical Therapy Assistant, or other support personnel, explaining each assigned patient's treatment programs, demonstrating unfamiliar procedures, and reviewing and discussing work performed.
Supervise and maintain recording of patients' treatment plans and progress notes.
