Description:

You.

 

You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as a Clinical Documentation (CDI) Specialist.

 

You know when to move quickly. When to sit quietly. When to laugh loudly.

 

Youre generous with your thoughts, your partnerships and especially your voice, because your opinion matters.

 

Youre great at what you do, but you want to be part of something even greater. Because you believe that while individuals can be strong, the right team is invincible.

 

Us.

 

We are excited to be expanding our CDI team and are looking for additional CDI Specialists to join our collaborative and well-supported team.

 

Our CDI Specialists work in a 100% electronic system, with EPIC and 3M 360 CDIS, working directly with physicians as well as other care team members.  Our team is supported by two educators, allowing for the support you need to be successful in your day-to-day role.

 

Our advanced CDI team is progressive and on the forefront of industry CDI strategies in alignment with national organizations such as ACDIS and AHIMA.

 

St. Marys Medical Center is part of SCL Health, a faith-based, nonprofit healthcare organization that focuses on person-centered care. Our 346-bed regional medical center is in Grand Junction, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Our mission is to bring health and hope to the poor, the vulnerable, our communities and each other.

 

Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, weve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.

 

We.

 

Together well align mission and careers, values and workplace. Well honor each others dignity and surpass the standards we set. Well encourage joy, demand safety and take pride in our integrity.

 

Well laugh at each others jokes (even the bad ones). Well hello and high five. Well celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.

 

Were proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
