Devereux is a leading nonprofit behavioral health organization that supports many of the most underserved and vulnerable members of our communities. Founded in 1912 by Helena Devereux, we operate a comprehensive national network of clinical, therapeutic, educational, and employment programs and services that positively impact the lives of tens of thousands of individuals and families every year. We help empower children and adults with intellectual, emotional, developmental, and behavioral challenges to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives. Our Philosophy of Care operates under the core principles of Individualized Services; Effective and Accountable Services; and Positive, Behavioral Approaches.
Devereux Texas has centers in League City and in Victoria. Together we have more than two hundred young people in residential treatment. Most of the children in our residential care are disadvantaged, underprivileged and considered to be at-risk and are being treated for emotional, psychiatric, and behavioral issues. The children are referred to us through the courts, child protective services or other social service agencies. Many times we are the last hope for these young people after having multiple placement and treatment failures. Devereux League City has been a committed and essential community resource to the greater Houston area since 1992. We are one of the largest community employers in League City with approximately 300 employees. We are located on a serene 50 acres in League City approximately 35 miles south of the fourth largest city in the nation, Houston.
The Float Pool (per diem) Licensed Vocational Nurse, under the direct supervision of a registered nurse, is responsible for assisting in assessing and implementing the delivery of patient care (excluding assessments that must be performed by a registered nurse), appropriate to the ages and populations served, specifically, children, adolescents, adults and older adults. He/She works collaboratively with the other members of the multidisciplinary treatment team and assists in the provision of patient care as allowed by Hospital policy and the Standards of Practice for Licensed Vocational Nurses.
The primary purpose of Devereux is to provide quality service to those entrusted to our care by their families, guardians, agencies, and other designated parties. The most critical resource we have to accomplish this task is our employees. No intervention can be implemented without the assistance of competent employees who are physically and mentally prepared to carry out this tremendous responsibility.
For this reason, in addition to a competitive salary, Devereux provides a comprehensive health and welfare benefits program to eligible full-time employees and their domestic partners. Health and welfare programs include medical, dental, prescription drug, preventative care, mental health services, and an Employee Assistance / Work Life Balance Program, as well as generous time-off policies, and a 403 B retirement plan.
Devereux offers Voluntary Medical and /or Dental Coverage available to eligible PT employees and FT employees who have not yet satisfied the eligibility waiting period for FT benefit offerings.
**It is the intent of Devereux to continue to offer these benefits; however, we must reserve the right to change or stop them at any time, with or without notice.
