Want a Job With Our Amazing Lake Pleasant Team? We’re hiring for a PT and an OTA!

Mike Cons has been the DOR at Lake Pleasant Post-Acute Care  for the past two and half years and was an Occupational Therapist at the facility prior to that.  He was motivated to move into the leadership role by his colleague’s dedication and drive to provide the best patient care and by their willingness to go to any lengths to help their patients achieve their goals. 

Lake Pleasant offers skilled therapy, long term care therapy and outpatient therapy.  The are currently in communication with several local ILF/ALF’s to offer mobile outpatient services.  The interdisciplinary team at Lake Pleasant is special.  Each person on that team brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and their ability to collaborate and problem solve to provide the best patient experience is second to none.  The therapy team at Lake Pleasant not only works well together – they regularly get together outside of work to celebrate work accomplishments as well as personal and family milestones.   

Lake Pleasant is also a training ground for future therapy leaders in our organization.  Mike has has several therapists go through our DORITO program and one has recently been promoted to DOR in another facility. One of Mike’s most meaningful patient experiences recently involved a long term care resident. The team as a whole is very proud of their long term care programming and how much it has helped the Lake Pleasant residents.  Mikes says that because of his talented and dedicated team, many of the long term care residents have rehabilitated to the point where they no longer need to be in a SNF and have returned to the community.  He recently had a military veteran transfer to Lake Pleasant from another facility.  He had been in a long term care setting for three years and voiced his desire to live on his own.  Our therapy team worked tirelessly with this resident and after about six months, he was able to discharge to an assisted living facility and has been successful in his new, more independent setting.   

Lake Pleasant is located in Northwest Peoria, AZ and is surrounded by new, charming master planned communities with tree lined parks, walking trails and Lake Pleasant Regional Park which offers boating, fishing and hiking in the beautiful Sonoran Desert.  If this sounds appealing, we currently have openings for a full time Physical Therapist and full time Occupational Therapy Assistant on our team!

north mountain rehab hiring

Who Wouldn’t Want To Work For North Mountain? -WE’RE HIRING!

Calli Carlson is our dynamic rehab director at North Mountain Medical & Rehabilitation Center in Phoenix.  She started out as a staff Occupational Therapist here and feels privileged to now lead this team.  She says she has always been amazed by this group – they are compassionate, hard-working, ethical, intelligent and fully committed to helping patients reach their maximum independence.  The North Mountain team gets to work with a diverse and interesting group of patients since the facility accepts trach, vent or dialysis patients who are very medically complex and have spent a lot of time in a hospital setting. When the team first evaluates a patient, it is not uncommon for the patient to require full, two-person assist just to sit up at he edge of the bed for a few minutes.  It is incredible and rewarding to see those same patients eventually stand, walk, dress themselves, and return home to their families and lives that they love.  “Our therapists see the potential in our patients and help motivate and inspire them even when they cannot see the potential in themselves.  It is really a special thing,” says Calli.

North Mountain has become well known for their potluck celebrations and takes advantage of any opportunity to celebrate.  In addition to a dynamic and dedicated therapy team, the facility has a wonderful interdisciplinary team where there is mutual respect and accountability between departments and a high level of communication between all members of the team.  They hold themselves and their colleagues to a very high standard.

Calli and the therapy team have had uncountable meaningful experiences with their patients over the years.  A recent one involved a patient who had suffered a stroke six months prior to coming to North Mountain and had been residing at a different skilled nursing facility.  He had been in bed for the past six months, had very little strength, and was very depressed.  Within the first two weeks, the North Mountain team had him up in a wheelchair and standing with two therapists, a bilateral knee block and grab bars when he face timed his wife.  His wife was crying tears of joy and he was smiling – the first smile the therapy team had seen from him.  You could just feel that he finally had hope.  This patient continue to work with therapy and progress – and his wife is so pleased that our therapists were able to see his potential when others did not. 

Calli is excited for the future of the therapy department at North Mountain and expects the team to continue to grow.  Because of recent additions to the team, they are able to incorporate sensory stimulation, communication boards, fine motor/gross motor activities to improve engagement, edema management and bed/wheelchair positioning to maximize patient’s well being and healing. “I am eager to work with even more patients as we grow our therapy family!”

Now Hiring an OTA, OT and PTA at Coronado Healthcare with Melissa Ricciardelli as the new DOR!

Meet Melissa Ricciardelli, our amazing new rehab director at Coronado Healthcare in Phoenix, AZ.  She has been part of the Ensign family for four years and was recently promoted into this leadership role.  Melissa’s passion is truly improving the quality of life for every patient she comes in contact with.  Her goal for Coronado is to have multiple LTC programs where each patient is engaged in meaningful activities every day and as independently as possible.  She loves teaching, developing and empowering the leaders on her team – Melissa has a passion for empowering the members of her therapy team to be extraordinary therapists and leaders by guiding and teaching them..  The most meaningful exchange Melissa has had with a patient in the last six months was simply chatting with a patient and his family about how much progress he had made – and having him show her what he could now do.  Melissa was gratified not only by his physical improvement but by how much his mental health had come from being very sad and depressed to on this day, having a huge smile on his face because he felt like he could do everything he needed to do on his own.  When she is not building something great at Coronado, you can find Melissa spending time with her husband and kids, camping and hanging out with friends.
