Job Description

Northwest is a 495 bed system serving the city of Amarillo and the surrounding region. We offer the ideal combination of traditional values and the most advanced technologies in healthcare, plus the conveniences of big city living in a friendly, smaller-town atmosphere. From the beauty of Palo Duro Canyon and great recreational facilities, to our quality educational system, Amarillo is a great place to live and work.

The Occupational Therapist functions under the general supervision of the physical medicine lead. The Occupational Therapist assumes responsibility and accountability for a designated group of patients and provides occupational therapy evaluations, modalities, and treatments in accordance with established hospital and departmental policies and procedures, maintaining the highest degree of quality patient care. The Occupational Therapist also assumes responsibility and accountability for the care of those patients being treated by occupational therapist assistants and / or students and may be assigned to orient staff and students and to assume the duties and responsibilities of the lead in the absence of that individual.

A hospital is only as good as its caregivers. That's why we're looking for allied health professionals who are dedicated and passionate about their work. We're looking for employees who can add to our culture of exemplary patient care and personal excellence. We're looking for exceptional professionals who share our vision and values.

Northwest Texas Healthcare System is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or protected Veteran status.
