WellSpan Health has three acute care hospitals: WellSpan York Hospital, WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital and WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital. In our hospitals, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists work with patients in their rooms or, when appropriate, in a spacious therapy gym.
WellSpan York Hospital team members enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic work environment. There is a diverse patient population including those in the intensive care unit (ICU), oncology areas, orthopedics, neurosurgery, joint replacement, general medicine/surgery and open heart units. We are:
- Joint Commission–certified Stroke Center
- Joint Commission–certified Total Joint Replacement Center
- Level 1 Trauma Center
Our team takes a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Our therapists work very closely and build strong relationships with physicians, nurses and referring providers. Open communication with providers is integral to providing high-quality patient care. There is opportunity to develop programs in multiple patient care areas as well as research opportunities through our Emig Research Center.
About WellSpan Rehabilitation
WellSpan Rehabilitation offers a variety of settings including:
- Acute care
- Comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation
- Home health
At WellSpan, you can take advantage of our opportunities for career advancement. There are two specific tracks—the clinical ladder program and the leadership track.
The clinical ladder program was developed to help strengthen internal resources thereby improving patient outcomes. The program facilitates, promotes and rewards clinical growth. It also helps to create a team of more specialized therapists, which benefits the patients, the therapists and the entire health system.
The leadership track is a new program available to help grow the department now and in the future. As WellSpan Rehabilitation has grown in recent years, management opportunities have increased. The department works with WellSpan’s Center for Leadership Learning to help develop those individuals who may be appropriate for leadership positions in the future.
We encourage continuous learning so that you can excel as a therapist. We offer a reimbursement program for continued professional growth and an ample continuing education budget. In addition, there are regular in-service opportunities.
We offer a competitive benefits package, which includes retirement plans, health insurance and student loan forgiveness options.
