Job Description:

CHI Mercy Health is scheduled to open a newly remodeled inpatient behavioral health facility - in the fall of 2023! -This will be a 12-bed treatment facility that will provide stabilization services for adults experiecing a mental health crisis. The environment and program interventions support a recovery-oriented approach to care, providing an opportunity for assessment/diagnosis, social services, family engagement and education for managing the acute symptoms of a mental health condition. - We are now seeking team members who share a passion and a mission for helping people in their journey towards mental and emotional wellness. -

CHI Mercy Health offers the unique opportunity to grow professionally in a supportive highly rewarding work environment and to satisfy your soul in the surroundings of a breathtakingly beautiful natural setting. More than 100 years after the founding of our organization the core values - Compassion Inclusion Integrity Excellence and Collaboration - that guide our interactions with our patients and each other remain the same. In the welcoming embrace of these nurturing communities you will feel immediately at home. -Roseburg is located on Interstate 5 in Southern Oregons scenic Douglas County. The community is nestled in a lush forested region known as the 100 Valleys of the Umpqua. In many places you'll find it hard to maintain a healthy work-life/personal-life balance because the pace of one is indistinguishable from the other. Not here. Life never stops here but it slows to an easy welcome pace. A traffic jam means you missed the yellow and have to wait for the next green. A terrible parking space is the one across from the restaurant instead of in front of it. And the three words you may never hear are "Wow that's expensive." Easy is the best way to describe life here. Hard-to-beat works too.

While you're busy impacting the healthcare industry, we'll take care of you with benefits that may include health/dental/vision, FSA, matching retirement plans, paid vacation, adoption assistance, annual bonus eligibility, and more!
