Connectus Health Hosts Hiring Event April 4

Connectus Health will hold an all-day hiring event on Thursday, April 4 to fill a number of positions. The federally qualified community health center invites prospective employees to stop by the gymnasium at the Vine Hill Community Center (601 Benton Avenue) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to apply.

Founded on the values of “providing a healthcare home for all in need,” Connectus offers high quality health care services for underserved communities, including the under- and uninsured. Its sliding fee discount and availability of payment plans ensure that no one is turned away from receiving care due to inability to pay. Connectus is an active participant at community events, often offering free physicals or vaccinations for children or assistance with insurance enrollment, and places an emphasis on culturally sensitive care.

“At the heart and soul of Connectus is our people who show up every day with a willingness to serve others,” Suzanne Hurley, co-CEO of Connectus, said. “It’s crucial that we connect with people who share our values and we’re excited about the opportunity to meet with candidates, show them around and give them a taste of what working at Connectus might look like.

Open positions include Medical Assistant, Licensed Practical Nurse, Patient Service Representative, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Certified Nurse-Midwife, Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner and Registered Nurse. Connectus operates two clinics in the Nashville area -- Vine Hill, at 601 Benton Avenue in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood and Priest Lake, at 2637 Murfreesboro Pike in Antioch. Its team of certified nurse-midwives see patients at both clinics and attend births at St. Thomas Midtown.

The job fair will be held in an “open-interview” format, allowing applicants to drop in at their convenience and meet members of the team. Guided tours of the clinic will be available upon request, and interested parties should bring a resume. Anyone who is unable to attend on April 4 may email his or her resume and position(s) of interest to info@connectus.org.

Connectus was established in 1999 as University Community Health Systems, an extension of Vanderbilt Hospital. It was rebranded to Connectus Health in 2016 and serves more than 20,000 patients annually through its community health and onsite clinics. The nonprofit offers services for all ages, nationalities, ethnicities and languages, including primary care and preventative services, pediatrics, women’s health, behavioral health and occupational health.
