Patient Navigator (Part Time)


Culmore Clinic is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, interfaith healthcare clinic serving low-income uninsured adults in Bailey’s Crossroads, a culturally rich community of Fairfax, Virginia. Supported by a diverse group of volunteers, healthcare providers, and donors, Culmore Clinic offers compassionate medical care and counseling services, as well as specialty referrals at little to no cost. Volunteers founded Culmore Clinic in 2007 and to this day it is still significantly volunteer run, allowing more resources to go toward patient care.

 

The Clinic seeks a part time Patient Navigator to act as first point of contact for enrolling new patients into Clinic services and ensuring new and existing patients become and remain eligible for valuable, but often administratively complex, external medical services offered by health partners.

 

The position works closely with the Clinical Director, the Patient Services Manager, and volunteer Enrollment Ambassadors and Nurses.
