Statement on COVID-19 Precautions Implemented for Employees
SalusCare takes the safety, health and well-being of our employees and patients very seriously.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, SalusCare has implemented the following precautions (updated as of July 2, 2021):
All staff working in the acute care and residential units of SalusCare are required to wear personal protective equipment including face masks/shields, gloves and gowns. Hand sanitizer is provided in wall units located throughout the facilities.
Temperature checks and a questionnaire regarding potential COVID symptoms are completed at the beginning of each shift for staff working at campus locations. Staff are to report any changes in their health status immediately to their supervisor.
SalusCare has instituted a hybrid model of care, with some outpatient services provided remotely through the ZOOM app and others returning to in-person care with appointments available.

Additional cleaning measures have been implemented through our contracted cleaning company to assure that all facilities remain clean and sanitized.

Certified Recovery Peer Specialist
I really enjoy my job on the Family Intensive Treatment Team (FITT) as a Certified Recovery Peer Specialist which provides support through someone’s recovery process. My position on this team of amazing peers is very rewarding when we are able to surround a patient with services to address their needs and, ultimately, reunify the patient with their children. I find the process of working with these families to be very interesting and fulfilling.
Clinician, Outpatient Therapy
I have a career that allows me to use my passion for starting new ways of thinking and feeling, strengthening families, and improving sense of self in our youngest patients. Reaching children and families to champion a cause such as abuse, addiction, anxiety, or some other difficulty has allowed me a heightened sense of purpose that only gets stronger every day here at SalusCare.
As an employee of SalusCare I can wholeheartedly say that this agency is an outstanding workplace. The sense of belonging and the full-fledged commitment to serving the community is what stands out the most to me. SalusCare allows me to do the two things I love the most: interpreting and helping others. In this capacity, I am able to provide language services to Spanish speaking patients with limited English proficiency who are seeking assistance with mental health and substance abuse disorders. By me helping these patients to communicate with doctors, nurses, clinicians, case managers and other medical staff it in turn allows them to receive the care they need, and not have to worry about the language barrier.
Director of Community Care Coordination
I have had the sincere pleasure of working at SalusCare for more than eight years and am gratified to be part of an agency that has demonstrated commitment to the community in many ways. I am proud of the reputation that we have upheld over the years, and our emphasis on providing quality care shines through in every area of the organization. It is the driving force behind a dedicated team of professionals that works together every day to inspire hope and perseverance.
