Full Time
 
Stable Full Time Position! Occupational Therapist (OT)
Practice to the highest level of your license!
 
     We are excited to welcome Skyline Transitional Care of Boise, Idaho, to our network of affiliated facilities!  Skyline is a charming 80 bed skilled nursing and post-acute rehabilitation facility with a ton of potential.

     Our therapy leader, Kristin Ryther, is a transfer from one of our Texas affiliates, and has been part of our organization for two years.  She has always been a natural leader in all aspects of her life and when she had the opportunity to become a therapy program manager, she jumped at the chance to be a multiplier and rise by lifting others.  As a leader in our organization, Kristin has been able to facilitate many dreams for both patients and her team members.  She is a fierce believer in CAPLICO and building facility level culture as well as encouraging her team to build something great in their own community.
          Kristin is inspired to build the program at Skyline from the ground up.  As a new acquisition, it is a clean slate and the team will be able to create and define the treatment approaches, specialized programs, community outreach and culture that fits the facility team and needs of the residents in the best possible way.  
     We can offer a stable in-house therapy team to work with, consistent and full time hours, a comprehensive compensation and benefits package and opportunities to grow as a clinician and as a leader through specialized training and continuing education in our expanding organization.    
 
Skyline Transitional Care receives support from Ensign Services who provides a wide range of clinical and operational assistance to over 200 independently owned healthcare operations located throughout the United States. Help us build something great and share in the Ensign experience with these in-house facility teams where our core values of  ownership, passion for learning, loving one another, and celebration are evident every day.
