$5,000 sign on bonus (new hire must meet eligibility requirements)
We care for adult patients ranging from teenagers to geriatrics who are being treated for elective procedures such as total joint replacement, bone and soft tissue tumor resections, as well as Ortho trauma patients with various fractures and injuries from a traumatic event (car accident, ATV accident, falls, violent crimes, etc.). Our patients are unique because they may have a very short length of stay. The majority of our patients are discharged to home and with the Ortho Trauma population it is often the first time they have ever been in the hospital.
