Thought Leaders: Columbine Health Systems — Focusing on Growth of Our Team

By Angie Scarpello RN, BSN - Columbine Health Systems — 

What a year and a half this has been! So many changes in our everyday lives and in our working worlds. Columbine Health Systems is so proud of our team. We have held strong. Our medical care and sense of pride contributes to daily accomplishments of our employees. Our residents are our top priority.  We strive to provide the care, compassion, and ingenuity which promote well-being for our residents and our team members!

Columbine has held a prominent name in our community for decades. We provide care in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor at our Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, Independent Living, and Patio Home communities. Community services include Columbine Poudre Home Care/Bloom at Home, Columbine Medical Equipment, Front Range Therapy, and Poudre Infusion Therapy. Our Windsor campus will open a 30-bed addition to our Skilled Facility later this year!

We connect with our community by building relationships with local businesses, universities, and schools. We have a successful Apprenticeship program providing high school students opportunities to immerse themselves in the clinical and non-clinical aspects of healthcare while receiving certified nursing assistant licensure and a paycheck!

Columbine focuses on acquiring talented employees who are passionate about their work. We offer a variety of positions from entry-level to the professional.

Columbine values your input, talents, and home and work life balance. We collaborate with WorkLife Partnership to support employees to achieve their productive balance.

Employees working 24 hours+/week are eligible for benefits including PTO, Health, Vision, Dental, and 401K, discounts from our pharmacy and healthcare clinic, which is free to plan participants and their dependents. All employees have 3 opportunities for raises their 1st year! The nursing department offers shift and weekend differential pay.

Columbine is also pleased to offer opportunities for scholarships, tuition reimbursement, and retention bonuses.

See for your opportunities!
