Back to Job Navigation (Success)

Patients who have undergone major surgery, illness or suffered catastrophic injuries often require different levels of help during their recovery – going from acute care, through post-acute and then on to rehabilitation – before they can return to a normal life. In my role I offer referral facilities a proven and recognized resource for their patients who need advanced rehabilitative services. And personally for me, I am honored to play a part in our patient’s recovery by providing the link to the care they need to get back home with their families.

Description

If you love healthcare but would like to try something new this may be the opportunity for you!


Kindred Healthcare is currently seeking an enthusiastic Resource Clinical Liaison to join our team! Kindred Healthcare is the largest diversified provider of post-acute care services in the United States. A Fortune magazine Most Admired Healthcare Company for nine years, Kindred's mission is to promote healing, provide hope, preserve dignity and produce value for each patient, resident, family member, customer, employee and shareholder we serve.

The Resource Clinical Liaison works with our different Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) in order to assist them in their business development, market analysis, growth, and planning. The RCL will also conduct trainings and develop educational programs as well as be tasked with research, liaison mentoring, conflict management, and other program improvement projects.

This role requires at least 75% travel, to our IRF facilities from coast to coast. The position will require flexibility in scheduling and last minute changes in deployment settings.

This position is also required to work alongside our New Start Implementation Team in our new rehabilitation hospitals.

This may entail cold calling, educating on the admission requirements of rehab, and working with the DBD for physician development.
