Silver Lake Hospital is a long-term acute care hospital with a reputation of providing patients with a place to heal before heading home. A long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) is an acute care specialty hospital that provides highly advanced and focused care for higher acuity patients who have not responded to short-term treatment in traditional general hospitals. The average length of stay in an LTACH is 25 days as compared to a 3-5 day average stay in a general hospital. Our safe and state of the art hospital is designed to admit and care for the most critically ill patients.

We pride ourselves as being a leader in the LTACH community by recruiting and retaining the finest talent possible. This is why we offer top pay, great benefits, and awesome perks. Our management also takes the time to train staff members and is very hands-on and knowledgeable.


Medical Doctor degree required. Valid physician license in the state of NJ. DEA and CDS licenses required. Basic Life Support (BLS) certification and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) certification required upon hire from the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association. Never have been excluded from participation in the Medicare and/or Medicaid programs. Prior clinical experience in acute care and behavioral health/mental health preferred. Proficient in Microsoft Office and EMR systems.

Positive interpersonal relationships that embody our patient/family centered philosophy. Excellent communication, teamwork, problem solving, and conflict resolution skills are required. Must possess interpersonal skills to interact effectively with patients, families, and other staff members.
