Are you looking to change your morning commute? Do you want to be a significant part of a rapidly growing organization on the forefront of physical and operational expansion? Do you want to live and work in a rural setting on the scenic and historical Northern California coast?
Redwood Coast Medical Services, Inc. (RCMS) is a not-for-profit health center providing a full range of healthcare services at its three clinics located along the coast. Services are designed to meet identified needs of the community, are integrated with other existing healthcare services and systems and are evaluated on a regular basis to ensure that community health needs are being met.
In order to address the healthcare needs of our rural community and to support the advanced and enhanced services that are required in the new health delivery environment, RCMS has formed the Mendonoma Health Alliance (MHA), which is an integrated network between RCMS, Coast Life Support District (the regional ambulance service) and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital (the level 2 trauma center for the five county region). The MHA has established an infrastructure to expand access, coordinate, and improve the quality of healthcare services to the community. The mission of the MHA is to improve local access to wellness education, prevention services and quality healthcare through creative solutions in collaboration with our community. Through the formation of the MHA, we have begun to address the looming health care issues for our population such as our growing aging in place population, increasing demands on more Urgent Care Services, and access to specialists.
