Do you want to make a difference while participating in a dynamic and reciprocal health care environment in the public sector? If so, we have an excellent opportunity for you to join our hospital’s team!
The DMHAS, Connecticut Valley Hospital (CVH) seeks an experienced and qualified individual for the position of Rehabilitation Therapist 2 (Therapeutic Recreation) within our Patient Central Services Division. We are conveniently located in Middletown, CT. The work schedule is Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., 37.5 hours weekly. The position number is 23951.
CVH opened in 1868 as the State’s public hospital for the treatment of persons with mental illness. Throughout its history, it has experienced the multitude of medical, social and political changes affecting such facilities. In 1995, the Governor and General Assembly through a statewide restructuring of services for persons with psychological and addiction disabilities called for a renewed commitment to specialized treatment at CVH by expanding community options for patients and staff while closing two other hospitals and consolidating inpatient services here. The hospital became the amalgamation of four formerly freestanding psychiatric hospitals, four freestanding substance use disorder treatment facilities, and one maximum security hospital. Then in 2010, the former Cedarcrest Regional Hospital (with 2 campuses – Cedar Ridge campus in Newington and Blue Hills campus in Hartford) consolidated services with CVH. On May 1, 2018, the Whiting Forensic Division of CVH separated, creating two separate hospitals; CVH and Whiting Forensic Hospital (WFH). Today, CVH is comprised of 17 inpatient units over two campuses (Middletown and Hartford).
The incumbent in this position will be responsible for working with and monitoring functioning of patients transitioning from an acute care setting to the larger community. The rehabilitation therapist will provide feedback to the treatment team and work to develop an action plan for successful transitioning.
