RN, Care Coordinator
The Care Coordinator works primarily with our Behavioral Health department caring for patients experiencing acute mental distress or who have an enduring mental illness. Primary duties include building relationships with patients to encourage trust, while listening to and interpreting their needs and concerns, preparing and participating in group and/or one-to-one therapy sessions, both individually and with other health professionals, working with patients’ families and carers, helping to educate them and the patient about their mental health problems, and promoting a ‘recovery’ based approach to care. This position also assists with the clinical needs of the Medical Providers as needed and may at times serve as the liaison between Operations and Medical for clinical interpretation purposes.
Community Health and Dental Care was formed through the generous funding of the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation along with various local businesses. Our doors opened in October 2008 with 39 medical and dental patients seen that first week. As of March 2016, we now provide care to almost 15,000 patients and counting! As a non-profit community health center, we have been organized to become the patient’s medical home for preventive care and to promote overall well-being, thus reducing the number of emergency room visits. Services offered vary from medical, dental, vision, OB-GYN, Behavioral Health, and case management.
