Your Career. Made Better.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center is the largest hospital in Missouri and is ranked as one of the nation's top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Barnes-Jewish Hospital's staff is composed of full-time academic faculty and community physicians of Washington University School of Medicine, supported by a house staff of residents, interns, fellows and other medical professionals. Recognizing its excellence in nursing care, Barnes-Jewish Hospital was the first adult hospital in Missouri to be certified as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

At Barnes-Jewish Hospital, therapists in the Department of Rehabilitation are a valued part of the care continuum and serve a significant role in making critical patient care decisions every day.  Our therapists experience a close connection with their patients and families as well as collaborative interactions with each patient's physicians, nurses and other medical team professionals. A large department of approximately 100 employees, the department is structured in a programmatic approach, which places physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists working together with the same patient population.  Therapy services are provided to a wide range of patient care areas, including medicine, surgery, orthopedics, neurology, cardiopulmonary, oncology and the special care nursery. Our vision is that we will be the leader in acute care rehabilitation by providing state of the art services and establishing new standards for rehabilitation.  We want Barnes-Jewish Hospital to be the place where the best rehab professionals choose to train, develop and practice.
