North Country HealthCare

About the organization

North Country HealthCare (NCHC) is transforming healthcare for rural Arizonans. NCHC is a primary care, federally qualified health center with a teaching and learning mission. We practice an integrative care model in an innovative culture. These things allow us to provide coordinated health care across the Colorado plateau to some of the most vulnerable rural populations in the United States. We have clinics in 12 rural communities -- divided into an east, central, and western region -- throughout the northern half of Arizona. The DCMO position could be based in Flagstaff or in the region of oversight.

Through our care model, we are able to drive key quality and cost outcomes, which create value for patients, providers, and the overall health system. Our model allows us to practice medicine the way it should be practiced by fostering strong provider-patient, provider-provider, and provider-staff relationships, and delivering appropriate care in a "one-stop" model.

Duties of the DCMO are approximately divided to 60% administrative, 40% clinical. You will be able to continue as a practicing clinician in this role.
