The health services that became the Anthony L Jordan Health Corporation (Jordan Health) began more than 100 years ago, in 1904. As one of the first 5 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) established in the nation, its roots are steeped in service to those who face barriers to health and health care, meeting their need for comprehensive medical, dentistry, behavioral health, and community services. Starting in northeast Rochester, NY, Jordan Health has since expanded to become a network of primary care offices and health centers serving residents living in three quadrants of Rochester, NY and in Canandaigua, N.Y.
Jordan Health is now seeking a Nurse Practitioner to provide preventative measures that protect the health and safety of patients; to strive to ensure that all health and safety standards and regulations are met in an effort to safeguard the health and well-being of patients; and to ensure access to preventative health and safety measures.
If you welcome the opportunity to apply your specialized experience and education in an environment where you can support staff whose mission is to make a difference and significantly impact our patients’ quality of life, please consider our Nurse Practitioner opportunity.
