You bring your body, mind, heart and spirit to your work as an Executive Director Caritas Clinics.
You’re passionate about leading a ministry of safety net clinics in achieving SCL Health’s mission, strategic, and operational goals.
You are energized by the feeling that you belong to something bigger, the people around you aren’t just colleagues, they feel like an extended family.
Caritas Clinics was established in 1986 and operates primary care clinics through a safety net model at Saint Vincent Clinic in Leavenworth, KS and Duchesne Clinic in Kansas City, KS. The clinics’ mission is to, in the spirit of the Sisters of Charity, reveal God’s healing love by improving the health of the individuals and communities we serve – especially those who are poor and vulnerable. Caritas Clinics are a ministry of SCL Health.
Benefits are one of the ways we encourage health for you and your family. Our generous package includes medical, dental and vision coverage. But health is more than a well-working body: it encompasses body, mind and social well-being. To that end, we’ve launched a Healthy Living program to address your holistic health. Healthy Living includes financial incentives, digital tools, tobacco cessation, classes, counseling and paid time off. We also offer financial wellness tools and retirement planning.
Together, we’ll improve the health of the people in the communities we serve.
We’ll laugh at each other’s jokes (even the bad ones). We’ll hello and high five. We’ll celebrate milestones and acknowledge the value of spirituality in healing.
We’re proud of what we know, which includes how much there is to learn.
