Speech Therapists

Essential Healthcare Staffing makes the critical connection between skilled therapists working in home health care and the healthcare agencies in need of their services. Our speech therapists work with patients on a case-by-case basis in their own homes over a period of weeks or months, as determined by their needs, to help them regain essential skills. At the same time, our therapists retain the ability to set their own schedule and workload to suit their personal needs and career goals. As a company created and led by therapists, our goal is to support you so that you can focus your energy on supporting your patients.

Here’s how Essential works for you:

One Point of Contact for Countless Opportunities

When you join Essential’s team, you’re really joining a large and expanding network of local agencies who call on us to match them with qualified speech therapists to meet the demands of their practice. With a single onboarding process, you become eligible to work with the vast majority of our clients without any additional vetting or red tape. Additionally, you don’t need to spend your valuable time looking for speech therapy jobs—we bring them to you.

Control Over Your Schedule and Workload

Whether you want to work full time, part-time, or seasonally, Essential Healthcare Staffing gives you autonomy. From the geographic area in which you want to work to the details of your daily schedule and the overall size of your caseload, it’s up to you to determine what works best for your career and your work-life balance.

Convenient Reporting and Billing

Whether you work with one client or twenty, you’ll use Essential’s electronic medical records system (EMR) to submit your reports and bill your time. Instead of waiting on reimbursement from multiple sources, you’ll receive payment from Essential via direct deposit, and get one tax form at the end of the year to simplify your accounting.

Administrative Support

Essential Healthcare Staffing knows you didn’t join the medical profession because you love paperwork and handling administrative tasks. We’re dedicated to providing the support you need to ensure that your time is spent with patients. We’re constantly developing new ways to make managing your caseload as quick and easy as possible.

Variety of Professional Experience

Our therapists work with patients of all ages and all kinds of speech therapy needs. Patients who’ve been released from the hospital or a skilled nursing facility and referred for follow-up speech therapy can have a number of issues with swallowing (dysphagia) or speaking (dysarthria) as the result of an accident, stroke, or neurological disease. You can choose to tailor your area of expertise to best fit your inclinations and goals.

Temporary-to-Permanent Hire Potential

When healthcare providers are looking to add permanent staff, they turn to Essential to find candidates they know have the qualifications, experience, and work ethic that will make them valuable additions to any practice. You can discover first-hand if the workplace culture and style of a potential employer are the right fit for you before you commit long-term.

The Advantage of Home Health

When you work to rehabilitate speech therapy patients in their own homes, you enjoy the benefit of customizing your therapy to meet the real-life challenges they face in regaining skills and achieving independent function. You’ll see first-hand the effect that compassionate, individualized care can have on a patient’s day-to-day quality of life in the setting that means the most to them. You also work closely with the overall medical team to evaluate how a patient’s environment and medical status affect their recovery and advocate on their behalf.

When you work with Essential Healthcare Staffing, you don’t have to wonder, “Are there speech therapy jobs near me?” The answer is always yes—because we do the networking for you, we know where to find them. Whether you are a newly licensed speech therapist looking to enter the field, an experienced therapist seeking a change in career direction, or a therapist who’s already employed but looking to supplement your income through additional part-time or seasonal work, Essential can match you with the right opportunities to meet your goals.
