Receptionist (Pool)

Job Description

 

Encompass Health is hiring a PRN Receptionist for our front desk!

 

Be the face of our hospital as you greet our visitors when they come to see their family members.  We have 40 patient beds and their families love to come and stay with them as they recover. 

 

In your role as a PRN Receptionist you will maintain internal and external communications of hospital and community through the operation of the telephone switchboard and front desk reception and help support other hospital departments by taking on clerical or general office related responsibilities.

 

But what does PRN mean?  This means that you do not have a certain number of hours promised each week but that you will fill in on either week days or weekends when our full time staff is unavailable. 

 

 

Come be part of our Rehab Hospital and make a difference in people’s lives every day!

 

Working at Encompass Health means being part of something special: A team that is passionate about making an impact on patients’ lives each day. Unlike the typical hospital setting, Encompass Health offers you the unique opportunity to walk alongside patients on their road to recovery from stroke, spinal cord injuries, neurological disorders, joint replacements, multiple trauma and cardiac/pulmonary conditions. As you help patients achieve goals and regain independence, you can form significant relationships with them and celebrate the successes they experience along the way.

 

Our culture of compassion and collaboration is founded on more than just the care we provide our patients; it is expressed in the values we live. We encourage and empower each employee to keep learning and growing by providing the resources to deliver a better way to care. At Encompass Health, you’ll find something decidedly different and more satisfying: A career that is challenging, inspiring and rewarding. Maximize your talent and join a team that is committed to setting the standard for better healthcare with this engaging opportunity. 

 

Credentials:

 

• High school diploma or equivalent preferred

• Working knowledge of switchboard equipment preferred

• Ability to use computer systems and complete data entry assignments preferred
