4 reasons to become an SLP in an outpatient setting

If you’re a Speech and Language Pathologist looking for a change may consider a switch in your professional setting. The drive and compassion you put into every work day can help you feel the job satisfaction you’ve been craving for years.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunity for speech-language therapists is expected to grow 18 percent between 2016 and 2026, which is a rate that’s faster than the average for all occupations.

The fight to save rural hospitals

Rural hospitals play a critical role in the health care landscape, providing accessible coverage for residents of hard to reach, isolated communities. Mounting data is showing that these essential organizations, however, are at risk of becoming extinct.

The data about the closure of rural hospitals is sobering. Recent research has found that:

  • 355 of these hospitals are in communities with “great health disparities,” or areas with high risk of medical conditions.
  • These closures would result in 99,000 health care jobs lost.
