Who we are looking for

Do you have home health experience? This is a great opportunity to either supplement your current caseload or transition to a more independent system. Maybe you don’t have home health experience, but you would like to learn how to translate your Outpatient, SNF, or hospice experience into this setting. We can help. Perhaps you aren’t sure if home health is what you’re after. Working in home health you set your own schedule, create a comfortable caseload, and cover the service area that works best for you. A home health setting is both flexible and rewarding.

About the role

This role allows you to operate as an independent, per-diem clinician, but with supportive consulting and resources available from Lifespan. We are here to help you be successful. Use our custom app to accept patient assignments in locations and on days that work best for you. Sign and submit notes on just 1 easy EMR system (TherapySync) with any data enabled device. Submit an invoice for direct deposit twice per month.

Our mission is to connect skilled clinicians with the patients who need them, removing the barriers of the traditional “one agency” system, decreasing re-hospitalizations, and making a difference in the community.
