Why TaraVista Behavioral Health Center?
At TaraVista, we havent forgotten the reason behind why we went into healthcare. Like you, we have a calling to help people - to make a real and meaningful difference in their lives. Also like you, were frustrated that business and process seem to come at the expense of our patients, and compromise our ability to work effectively as teams.
We believe that behavioral healthcare doesnt have to be an either/or choice between proper business and proper treatment - we believe we can truly do well by doing good.
Join our TV team where values like collaboration, compassion, engagement, and respect are the very real foundations of our culture not just ideals in a job post. Reconnect with the reasons you chose to work in healthcare and shift from simply having a career, to really living your calling.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
