Job-hunting can always be a very stressful undertaking. You want to find a place where you feel like you’ll be a good fit. You want to find a place where you can learn and grow and build relationships.
This isn’t always an easy task.
As someone in a military relationship, I have had to repeat this job-hunting process on a semi-regular basis. As anyone that moves around a lot understands, there is a lot of stress and unease associated with moving to a new town and being in unfamiliar territory.
I just recently started at the Cantrell Center, but the experience has already been such a wonderful one.
There is something about being involved with the Cantrell Center that is so unique. And, it impacts the patients, the clinicians, and the community as a whole in an incredible way. It starts from the moment you walk into the building. Everyone is warm and welcoming. You get to see the passion that they have for their jobs.
The clinicians all have such a hunger for knowledge, and they are always learning from the newest research and from each other how to provide the best, most individualized care.
As with the PT side, the wellness staff helps give people the tools they need to live happier and healthier lives. And, the administration as a whole works hard to accommodate everyone that walks in that door so that they are able to focus on getting better and being healthier.
The members support one another and also make lasting relationships with the people they meet there. They know the staff and each other and always offer a smile.
Now, here is the really cool part: There is a palpable “feeling” you get from the environment of the Cantrell Center. Whether you are coming in as a patient, a wellness member, or part of the staff, you feel a sense of inclusion. You feel like you’re being listened to and that people care– Because they truly do care. The people that frequent the Cantrell Center are some of the most hard-working, genuine, and inspirational people you’ll meet.
And being in such a positive environment surrounded by such incredible people starts what I like to call “The Cantrell Effect”. When you feel supported and valued for who you are as a person, it makes you feel more capable. It makes you want to work harder and to be better. It inspires you to get out of bed every morning and work on bettering yourself but also helping others see their potential to do the same.
And, that’s what the Cantrell Center is all about. It’s about the staff. It’s about our patients. It’s about our community. It’s about the Cantrell Center family, and everyone is part of it.
