Eden Health provides simple, tech-enabled primary care for employers and their teams. Our users enjoy immediate access to care over the Eden Health app, in our private clinics, and directly in their offices. We have transformed healthcare from an unpleasant necessity to a delightful experience focused on improving the lives of patients. The proof is in the outcomes; when companies work with us they have healthier workforces, increased productivity, and reduced healthcare costs.
What you will be doing:
We have an exciting opportunity to join our team as a physical therapist providing patient care at an onsite health center in Chicago, Illinois. You will provide excellent clinical care for our patients. You will work alongside medical doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in a collaborative care environment.
As a Physical Therapist at Eden Health, you will be empowered to provide the best care for patients without needing to optimize for insurance revenue. Our focus is on providing the best care for patients at the right place and time. Smaller patient panels allow for a more individualized and specialized approach; they also open up opportunities to create and implement new initiatives that improve the quality of care. The work environment is collaborative with a heavy emphasis on technology to enable a streamlined and elevated experience.
The person hired for the Physical Therapist position would partner with new and ongoing patients in our facility to plan, prepare, and carry out individually designed programs of physical treatment to maintain, improve or restore physical functioning, alleviate pain, and prevent physical dysfunction in patients. This practice will be integrated with Eden Health’s primary care and mental health practice and you can expect to work collaboratively with those teams. You will show interest in leveraging in-person and virtual care delivery models, are excited to go above and beyond for their patients, and be passionate about a patient-centered approach to care.
