Speech Language Pathologist Job for Outpatient Clinic

Skowhegan, ME 04976

ABOUT THE POSITION

Our large team of 42 employees use an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to helping our community develop or regain lost function and life skills after surgery, injury, or in preparation and support of educational needs.  Therapists across the disciplines all train together in a very supportive environment where continuing education, teamwork, and outstanding patient outcomes are the focus.    

Our facility boasts two large pools – including the largest therapy pool in Maine (35 x 60 ft); extensive exercise and therapy equipment and diagnostic testing tools, private therapy rooms, and welcoming pediatric treatment spaces – all connected via a wireless electronic medical recording system.

Our SLP team is located in the outpatient clinic across the street from the main hospital, but we do provide the inpatient/acute care speech pathology services needed as well, including in radiology for Modified Barium Swallow studies.   

We have two other SLPs (which includes the Rehab Department Director) and one full-time SLP Assistant. 

This will be early intervention pediatrics (16-18 months up through typically school age) through geriatrics.  As a rural community outpatient provider, our therapists must be ready, able and enthusiastic about screening, evaluating and treating a wide variety of populations and needs.    For the current position we have available, an SLP with a particular interest in pediatrics would be most beneficial, but ability to successfully address the needs of adults and acute care patients is important as well. Training to do so is provided on-going. 

We offer pediatric screenings, evaluations and treatment; adult neuro / stroke recovery; brain injury, voice treatment, swallowing / dysphagia assessment and treatment (including Modified Barium Swallow studies). 

You will usually see 6-8 outpatients plus perhaps an inpatient. This depends on how therapists setup their patient’s treatment frequency and related plans of care.  Therapists are in control of all their Plans of Care – frequency and duration of treatment etc…  Inpatient needs are met ad hoc between team members. You get dedicated documentation time, training time, program development and time for meetings. Employee hours are NOT reduced or cut upon patient cancellations or unforeseen slow days.  

ABOUT THE EMPLOYER

This is an outpatient rehab clinic that is very spacious, modern, well-equipped therapy and fitness facility that integrates traditional therapy practices of PT, OT, Speech-Language Pathology, and Athletic Training, with community-based health and fitness programs for persons of all ages, early pediatrics to seniors.
Benefits offered:
100% medical PPO, dental, vision, 403b, very generous PTO, CE allowance, disability, life insurance, tuition assistance, various other insurances.
Why you should come work for us:
For clinicians used to an ever increasingly stressful business environment of unrealistic productivity standards and cost containment at the sacrifice of quality patient care, we proudly offer a very different experience.  Our  focus is not on therapist productivity but on doing whatever it takes to help our clients and our community thrive.  A big part of our formula is our core value of creating supportive and sustainable work lives for our team members so they, in turn, can simply focus on doing what drives their professional passions – doing great therapy!  

Whether it be flexible or consistent work hours, generous earned benefit time, frequent in-house training, and fully supported continuing education - our therapists consistently attest to a terrific place to apply their craft.
