The Community - Johnstown, PA
Located in the Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania, Johnstown had a colorful history as a booming steel town in the 1800s. We have great connections to neighboring communities and beyond, as well as an airport that offers daily flights to Washington and Greyhound and Client train service. Johnstown is home to nearly 22,000 and our family-friendly neighborhoods, good schools, and superb quality of life are just a few of the reasons why our residents have chosen this area as their home. We invite you to come and see for yourself all that Johnstown has to offer. Once you get here, you won't want to leave!

People move to Johnstown for many reasons: our excellent schools, first-rate health care facilities, scenic beauty, tourism, and proximity to Pittsburgh. Families that left our city years ago are moving back to Johnstown to enjoy a lifestyle that offers convenience, affordability and a community spirit that can't be found in larger cities. Our surrounding communities offer many specialty shops. You can also take a historic walking tour of our downtown...visit the Flood Museum and learn a lot about the Great Johnstown Flood that killed more than 2,200 in 1889. Although it's a story of great tragedy, it's also one of inspiration and triumphant recovery ... and one that has helped shaped who we are today.

Behavioral Health is evolving and Geriatric Psychology is one of the fastest growing sectors. The aging baby boomer population and changes in how behavioral health services are provided to the adult and geriatric community makes this sector one of the best to be associated with. A progressive leader in the industry that partners with committed psychologists that own a passion for what they do. Exceptional compensation, benefits and growth potential are certainly there. Just as importantly, though, it is the professional respect and appreciation from a forward thinking CEO and management team that will get your attention.
