Summary of Position: Circle the City is a rapidly growing non-profit community health agency dedicated to providing high quality, holistic healthcare to people experiencing homelessness in Arizona. Our homeless continuum of care is one of a kind in the State of Arizona, and one of few similar models across the nation. Circle the City patients benefit from several different levels of care offered within our organization: The sickest of our patients are offered the opportunity to rest and heal in our two state-of-the-art 50-bed medical respite centers at the Midtown and Downtown locations. Additionally, patients suffering from mental illness may receive psychiatric consultation at any of our service sites, or many benefit from the more intensive, community-based services offered by our assertive community treatment team. Circle the City will also soon maximize our community outreach efforts via a 2-exam room mobile clinic, and street based medicine program, slated to launch later this year.

Circle the City strives to meet each of our clients “where they are,” without judgement or bias. We embrace a culture of dignity and respect for all our patients, staff members and community partners. Our approach to healing is holistic in nature, focusing on the important balance of physical, mental and spiritual health. We engage each of our patients with the goal of not only providing excellent care, but also of assisting them on their journey out of homelessness.

The Circle the City Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner will provide high quality holistic health care as an integral part of a dynamic interdisciplinary team. Care is provided in multiple settings including the two innovative 50-bed Medical Respite Centers, the Parsons Family Health Center, the Downtown Family Medical Center and the mobile medical unit, and street outreach sites.
