Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) – Full Time
We are seeking a full time PTA to join our in-house therapy team at South Mountain Post-Acute Care Center at Baseline and Central in Phoenix, AZ. As part of our team you will enjoy a stable in-house environment and have the freedom to implement the programs that you feel will most benefit your patients. We have an awesome Director of Rehab and facility team who can offer the support and training needed to provide excellent specialty programs for Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological impairments, Abilities Care Approach, Alter G treadmill programs, cardiac rehab, and many more! We see a diverse mix of orthopedic, neurological and cognitive disorders, and many of our patients are returning to home. This is a great opportunity to be part of building something great in Phoenix. In return for your clinical excellence and professional passion we can offer you a highly competitive compensation package and many career growth opportunities with our growing organization.
We have been in-house with therapy for many years which gives us a significant edge going into the current payment model changes. Our therapy and nursing teams work collaboratively to ensure outstanding outcomes for our patients. While some companies are preparing for layoffs or demanding outrageous productivity levels, we are gearing up for even more amazing rehab programs.
