SCL Health - Wheat Ridge - CO Careers Responsibilities

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Acute Psychiatric Registered Nurse.

 

Your compassion is tangible: patients feel it in the hand they hold. Families feel it in your prayers. Colleagues feel it in your support.

 

You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.

 

Youâ??re great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.

 

Us.

 

Conveniently located just west of Denver in Wheat Ridge, we offer complete behavioral health services for people who are experiencing addiction, substance use and mental health conditions. Our qualified medical and clinical teams also offer treatment for people who are affected by both substance use disorders and an emotional or psychiatric disorder. Our holistic approach to treatment focuses on our patientsâ?? physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being.

 

West Pines Behavioral Health at Lutheran Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our tight knit team specializes in helping adults ages 18 and older with psychiatric or addiction concerns.

 

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weâ??ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.

 

We.

 

Together weâ??ll align mission and careers, values and workplace. Weâ??ll encourage joy and take pride in our integrity.

 

Weâ??ll laugh at each otherâ??s jokes (even the bad ones). Weâ??ll hello and high five. Weâ??ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

 

Weâ??re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
