Interior Health’s Invermere District Hospital (IDH) invites applications from Physiotherapists interested in Casual employment.
IDH is an 8-bed Community hospital offering services that include acute care, laboratory, and 24-hour emergency. Columbia House, a single story building adjoining the acute care hospital, is a 35 long-term care bed facility supporting people to function at their highest level and provide the best quality of life possible. Two long-term care beds are dedicated to respite/short stay.
We are seeking a Physiotherapist to assist in IDH Acute Care and Columbia House Long-Term Care when coverage is needed and when caseload demand is high.
