Why Work at CVCH

Our clinics offer a unique environment in which our employees view their jobs not simply as careers but as a calling. We are dedicated to our employees’ well-being and take pride in providing a place to work that encourages growth, teamwork, communication, recognition of achievement and positive co-worker/supervisor relationships. But don't take our word for it.

In Their Words...

“We are an amazing resource for the poor and uninsured populations in our community. We have great financial assistance programs for patients in need and we work as a team to function as a true medical HOME, attending to the patients’ global needs. We also reach out to the Hispanic populations, most obviously by simply speaking a common language, something I feel is not met and frustrating for our patients elsewhere in the local healthcare community.  We also have great support and camaraderie among providers and staff at CVCH. Our interactions, while professional, are easy-going and comfortable, frequently extending outside of the clinic walls.”

“At CVCH we work as a team. The pod structure utilizes a variety of skills from med clerk, MAs, RNs and providers, to help assist each patient in receiving the individual care that they need.”

Christine Bosa, ARNP, Wenatchee

“One of the things that originally attracted me about CVCH was the autonomy and respect given midlevel providers. Tim Seaman, PA-C, and Andrea Hoey, ARNP have been with CVCH almost since the very beginning, and this has helped the organization develop a culture where mid-levels are afforded maximum autonomy and respect for their experience. CVCH has helped me develop my skills and abilities more than I ever expected. They provided me with an excellent mentor, marketed my services and helped me build a panel, and developed my leadership abilities on several committees. There is no sharp dividing line between physicians and midlevels, and I sometimes feel people seek me for consultation just as much as I seek them. I have several very complicated patients on my panel, and my supervising physician and our medical director always express their confidence in my training and abilities to manage these difficult cases. We have provider meetings twice a month where we learn about best practices and, with midlevels afforded an equal vote as physicians, help determine the future direction of our practice. I can’t think of a better place to be a PA.”

Casey Wyatt, PA-C, East Wenatchee

“I trust our leadership. I appreciate that we continue to be an organization that nourishes input, innovation, creativity and places importance on every individual within our organization. I appreciate that we continue to be forward thinking, forward moving, intelligent, creative, innovative and thoughtful as we assess our ability to provide evidence based, compassionate, cost effective care to the individuals we serve.  I appreciate the smiles and happy, encouraging, earnest hearts of the employees I serve with.”

Aura Sanderson, PA-C, Chelan

"I am often asked why I have chosen to spend my career at CVCH, and I always reply “as soon as someone can find more important work for me to do with better people, I will take that job.” CVCH has put a huge amount of thought and resources into the systems that support a provider doing their best work as consistently and safely as possible."
