My story of why I chose HealthSouth begins innocently enough....I was a high school graduate and needed a job. During this endeavor, I ended up finding something more, a work family. I began my career at HealthSouth in 1998 as an Occupational Therapy Tech. I joke and tell others that I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up, so I worked in as many different roles as I could while I decided on my career aspirations. My jobs at HealthSouth included Therapy Tech, Phlebotomist, Speech Therapy Aide, Rehab Nursing Tech, Admissions Coordinator, Receptionist, Staff Nurse, Charge Nurse, and finally PAS Coordinator. I always knew there was room for advancement at HealthSouth, and they recognize employees who put in the work. I was the first recipient of the Nursing Loan Program at our facility. Not only do the Senior Managers at HealthSouth Chattanooga care about the success of our patients and hospital, but they are also invested in the success of their employees. I am proud to say that I work for HealthSouth.
