Background for the positions listed below:

 

Our work at Casa de Salud is unique. Every day, we deliver care that is rooted in dignity, trust, creativity, cultural humility, and mutual respect. We see healthcare from a lens that understands the histories of inequalities, oppressions, and structural forces that affect our community. We also see the strengths of our community members, as well as the cultural richness that exists around us. It is with this historical analysis and appreciation for the power within our community that we build towards collective wellness and liberation.

 

Casa de Salud was founded in 2004 to provide high quality medical services to people with no or limited health insurance as well as a place for primary care clinicians and integrative healers to enjoy the practice of medicine. We embrace a holistic approach using a wide range of conventional, natural and traditional medicines to best address mind/body/soul medicine. Our clinicians include Family Physicians, a part-time gynecologist, NPs, PAs, a social worker, as well as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, a Reiki master, a curandera, and two massage therapists. Case management and health coaching are available to patients.

 

Casa de Salud is rooted in community, has relationships with many direct service and advocacy organizations in the county and beyond, and provides a culturally humble and anti-racist environment for staff, apprentices, and patients.  The clinic is in a time of rebirth and growth, with the ability to creatively implement new programs and ideas without the bureaucracy of conventional healthcare settings.

We offer a wide range of medical, integrative healing, psychosocial and advocacy services on an appointment basis or walk-in basis. Many of our patients are monolingual Spanish speakers. As part of our comprehensive approach to primary care, we also have a strong focus on nutritional/lifestyle changes, harm reduction (needle exchange in-house), opiate addiction recovery with medication assisted treatment and integrative/bodywork modalities, women's health services, and queer/transgender care including gender affirming hormone therapy.

 

Casa de Salud is not a federally qualified health center, instead we are a nonprofit integrative community-based clinic. 75-80% of our patients are self-pay and we provide transparent, affordable healthcare and low-cost labs and procedures. We also accept Medicaid, greatly reducing the hassles of insurance-based healthcare while serving those most in need. Our patients are appreciative and enjoyable to work with; many have been with us since we started in 2004.

 

Casa de Salud serves as a training site for pre-professional health students who serve as "health apprentices" and help run many aspects of the clinic under the supervision of a nurse and an apprentice clinical supervisor. We have a comprehensive and user-friendly electronic medical record. Casa de Salud is led by a board-certified family physician/addictions physician who also practices medicine at Casa, and is in touzch with clinicians' needs. Casa de Salud's top leadership and board of directors are all women (and majority women of color).

 

 

Community Health Worker (Spanish language proficient)

Casa de Salud is hiring a Community Health Worker (CHW) to join a team of 3 full time CHWs who started at the organization in December 2021. Our CHW team is leading a new and critical initiative for COVID-19 vaccine equity and a range of other health equity issues. We are excited to partner with the City of Albuquerque and various clinics and nonprofit organizations, through the Health Literacy Project to Enhance Equitable Community Response to COVID-19. Our new team of CHWs creatively engages with community members through culturally humble approaches, and is working among a larger team of CHWs across organizations to strengthen strategies around health equity issues. The CHWs focus on a variety of issues that impact our community and provide solutions to improve overall health in the time of the COVID pandemic. The primary focus of this work will be COVID-19 vaccination education and engagement, but CHWs work to support community members in other areas to support families through this pandemic -- such as the ERAP rental assistance program, medical debt case management, and improving access to health/care.

Under the supervision of the Executive Director and in collaboration with our lead CHW, our new CHW will support Casa de Salud in its vision for transforming the ecosystem of care within the clinic and out in the community.

We are looking for a CHW with Spanish language proficiency or fluency, given a majority of our community members served by Casa de Salud speak Spanish.

  • Creatively approach and implement educational/outreach activities for the community, in person, at events, and online.

  • Support the creation of and provision of educational tools in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner to support community members of various backgrounds.

  • Document all internal and external referrals, and support all required reporting for this project.

 

Qualifications:

Minimum qualifications include two years of experience working in the community in areas of community outreach or healthcare, and proficiency or fluency in Spanish.

  • Ability to document in excellence, gather data, and prepare reports as needed.

  • Ability to utilize computers, a personal smartphone, and various software applications, including email, google suite (google docs, google sheets, and others), and electronic medical record software.

  • Must be willing to comply with a criminal background check.

  • Salary/Benefits and conditions of employment:

  • This is an employed position, full-time, as an hourly employee, at $18/hour.

  • Work is performed at Casa de Salud in an office/clinic work environment, as well as out in the community.
