Physical Therapist Holy Rosary Healthcare


You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Physical Therapist.
Your compassion is tangible: whether your patient is 18 or 85, they 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.
We are currently offering up to $15,000 (sign-on bonus and relocation assistance, if applicable)!
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.
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.
