Employment

Looking for a career at Mountain Valley Therapy? Open positions will be listed on this page. If you are interested in applying please follow the directions for the position listed.

We are currently hiring a full time Physical Therapist.

Job Description: Being an outpatient clinic in a rural area let’s just say the phrase “jack of all trades” will apply. We do encourage you to have a passion and even specialize in whatever you enjoy the most, but there will be times that you see geriatrics, athletes, balance issues, total knees, total hips, neuro and everything in between. If you really want to sharpen your skills in a large sense, or you enjoy the variety that an out patient clinic can offer then we have a job for you.

One patient one hour. That’s out moto here and everyone loves it. You see one patient per hour. No tricks, no gimmicks, that’s the deal. If you work an 8 hour shift the most patients you can see is 8 patients. If you want to give excellent patient specific patient care then we are the place for you. You might be wondering how we use PTAs in that model. When a PT establishes a POC it includes a PTA you want the patient to work with, the patient will see the PT for several visits then the PTA for several visits, back to the PT for follow up, back to the PTA, and finally closure of the case with the PT.

The job is what you would expect, treating patients and documenting treatments in an outpatient setting. We use WebPT, and supply all our clinical staff with Laptops for documenting with patients through the treatment. We employ 4 receptionists that handle checking patients in and out, as well as scheduling patients. We employ 3 billing specialists that handle entering and tracking all charges, staying current on insurance compliance, and all patient pre authorizations. All you have to do is document what you did with the patient, and our staff handles the majority of everything else.

 We are new grad friendly; we have many Physical Therapists with different skill levels. This creates a great environment for learning and growth. In addition to all the continuing education we offer we also try and organize monthly group meeting nights for clinical staff to meet and share skills. Newer grads upon hire are setup weekly time with one of our seasoned Physical Therapists for the first couple months to make sure skills are growing and patients are progressing.
