Job Summary

Lee Health is looking for a dynamic physical therapist to practice as part of our impressive emergency department team. This therapist will have the opportunity to collaborate in the care of patients with a wide range of acute and chronic problems coming from the neuromusculoskeletal, cardiovascular-pulmonary, and integumentary systems.

In this unique opportunity as an emergency department PT, you will play a critical role in screening for appropriateness of care, in consultation with other practitioners, and in the direct care of patients. This role is designed to allow the PT to closely integrate with the interdisciplinary ED team, including but not limited to: physicians, mid-level providers, nursing staff, and case management staff.

The Lee Health emergency department enthusiastically welcomes the addition of physical therapy services to aid in reducing costs, increasing patient satisfaction, and decreasing the potential for readmission through patient education and subsequent physical therapist follow-up.

Additional responsibilities include reducing the risk of injury, impairment, functional limitation and disability, as well as, the promotion and maintenance of fitness, health and wellness in populations of all ages. The PT is engaged in administration, consultation, education and research. The PT is expected to conduct themselves in an effective professional behavior manner.
