We're a Fun, Relaxed Physical Therapy Clinic Looking For...
a Rockstar Physical Therapist!
Covid 19 has been a blessing in some ways (not in all ways, but stay with me). Taking a break from life as we have known it, has caused some of the following:
- Not having a job to return too.
- Not wanting to return to the job/stressful pace we had.
- A new awareness of how important work/life balance really is, and that needs to stay a part of the “new normal”.
- Being a health care provider and giving of yourself everyday, without replenishing or “filling your cup” leads to burnout and adrenal fatigue.
I have been a physical therapist for 23 years, clinic owner for 9, and understand all of the above listed items. I worked in corporate PT as a new grad, loved my patients and my co-workers, but there were some things I saw that slowly started making my soul question what I was doing, and the ethics of the company I was working for.
IF you can relate to this, just reply with AMEN:
- Sketchy coverage of that PT lic I just worked so hard to get
- Being tripled every 30 min with IP clients and then having no clue who I had really seen when documenting.
- Coming home and sitting in the dark eating chips and salsa because I was give out.
- Not feeling like I had much patience for my home life, because work was so physically/emotionally/chaotically draining.
I found the Myofascial release work that John F Barnes teaches in 2003 and have been taking classes every since. I love 1:1 direct care for an hour, and I know that clients can tell the difference. ( and wasn’t that what being in healthcare was about—actually performing treatment on someone that you knew about their case and weren’t braindead to do some good treatment on?)
Corporate healthcare is generally more concerned with money than patient outcomes. Expectations placed on clinicians are generally unrealistic since admin positions are far removed from direct patient care. And getting in trouble for low productivitiy is more likely than ever getting called out for questionable ethics.
Therefore, I choose to have each therapist see one person at a time, max of 6 patients a day, with 15 min breaks between clients for bathroom breaks, documentation, or just take a drink of water and read up on the next person.
Monarch physical therapy offers the following:
- Small, direct care clinic with a strong belief in you, the clinician, to make appropriate decisions in the POC and treatment of your patients.
- Monthly time blocks on the schedule to work on each other, discuss patient care, and mentorship on clinical skills.
- Transparency on how a small business is run and encouragement of personal development.
- Mentoring on understanding the business and financial side of the clinic at monthly staff meetings, so all staff are invested in treatment and productivity , and how that contributes to the clinic as a whole.
- Ability to teach/mentor clinical skills, but also granting autonomy to manage caseload and schedule.
- Growing in clinical management skills to further advancement in the company.
- Basically paid for a 40 hour week, while seeing 30 patients a week (yep, not a day).
If this resonates with you in any way, or you are interested in employment, we are a clinic based on JFB myofascial release, pelvic floor therapy, and doing our best in the process. Skill set has to include a Texas PT lic in good standing, already taken JFB MFR courses and have a passion for this work. Professional winning attitude who is motivated to help practice in a multitude of ways if there is downtime.
The posting is NOT for the following:
- Slacker attitude looking for and “Easy” job
- Someone who is not present and can’t separate work/life and not able to be efficient while at work
- Someone who is all talk, and no action. She really loves her work and not just full of hot air to “sell it” to get this position.
This job IS FOR:
- Someone who loves living in the Texas Hill Country, where there is great opportunity to kayak, listen to live music, and still close to the big city of San Antonio to shop or do arts/cultural events.
- Someone who has personality. There are teachable skills and non-teachable skills—I can teach you the EMR and how to open the office, but I can’t teach you to care, be a great communicator, and have passion.
- Someone who understands there is a trade off for lower census, lower stress in the form of not the highest salary in the country—but how much does time and energy cost??
