Job Description:

JOB SUMMARY: Vighter is actively searching for a Physical Therapist to perform services at a Joint Commission accredited federal healthcare facility in central Louisiana. This is a phenomenal opportunity to gain knowledge and experience within the military health system while supporting servicemembers and their families. The schedule is fantastic; Monday to Friday from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM with no call or weekend duties. We offer a competitive compensation package as well as a robust benefits package including: medical, dental, vision, life, 401(k), short/long term disability coverage, accident & critical illness, and more. Louisiana residents enjoy a low cost of living across the state - an average 5 percent lower than the rest of the country. Affordable housing costs coupled with some of the nation's lowest utility rates make the state a comfortable place to live. Homeowner-friendly tax policies and a stable housing market work together to make owning a home in Central Louisiana an easy and affordable process - Alexandria's housing costs are lower than nearby cities such as Beaumont, Little Rock and Houston. In addition, the region's presence in a state with a strong, energy-producing focus provides residents with access to cheaper fuel and utilities. Transportation costs that include everyday expenses such as gasoline and auto repairs are far less in Alexandria than in cities like Jackson, Atlanta, Dallas and Fort Worth. Similar to fuel- and travel-related expenses, utility costs ranging from home energy to basic telephone bills are also much lower in Alexandria. Utilities in cities like Corpus Christi and Mobile cost, on average, 24 percent more than they do in Alexandria. THE COMPANY Vighter is a physician-led firm accredited by The Joint Commission and is verified as a service-disabled veteran-owned business by the VA. Since 2005 our company has provided healthcare services on challenging programs in support our Federal government clients. Our healthcare staff have performed Search and Rescue operations in Africa as well as Asia, assisted with the Ebola response effort, supported ICE with in-flight emergency medical services, conducted physical examinations for veterans seeking disability determinations, and many other missions.
