Employment Opportunities

We are a great facility with employees who care about the people who live here—and—who care about their team members.

Current Employment Opportunities

La Crosse County offers great benefits depending on the number of hours worked.

If the position is full-time, then the position qualifies for our generous benefits package, which includes health and dental insurances with excellent coverage and low and no-cost usage options.

If the position is part-time, then limited benefits would be available (this would not include insurances unless 30 hours per week or more). 

If the hours are less-than-half-time, then there are no benefits available.

 We offer generous shift differentials on top of the excellent hourly wage.
