Patient care associates: advocating for our patients

At Rogers we have a long history of offering evidence-based treatment for children, teens, and adults.

Our patient care associates (PCAs) provide support to our clinical services teams while performing general patient care services in our inpatient and residential levels of care. PCAs are responsible for recording patient information for admission, assisting in the patient orientation process, and acting as an advocate for assigned patients.

You will have the opportunity to learn about behavioral health and Rogers as you work with a variety of members of the clinical team. The role has meaningful interactions with patients, including obtaining and documenting vital signs, engaging in one-on-one sessions, and discussing patient goals to address psychosocial, spiritual, intellectual, and physical needs. PCAs also identify potential patient care problems and collaborate with the treatment team to prevent adverse outcomes by ensuring the treatment plan is followed. They also report and record patient behaviors, interactions, and responses to intervention.

As part of the Rogers team, you’ll have the chance to develop and progress in a mental health career with the potential to make a lasting impact by supporting patients in rising above their challenges of mental illness, addiction, and stigma.

A minimum of a high school diploma (or equivalent) is required for a PCA, while two years of college or a bachelor’s degree in a human services related field is preferred. Additionally, one year of patient care (preferably in a psychiatric setting) would be ideal.
