If so, HealthRIGHT 360 is currently looking to fill a Medical Assistant opening at our Lyon Martin Health Services in San Francisco, CA. The ideal candidate has 2 years of direct patient care experience working in a community health or primary care setting, with populations of varying lifestyles, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, ethnic and cultural backgrounds and economic status and histories of homelessness and addiction. In this position you will gain experience in providing hands on transgender healthcare as a part of a health center with a national reputation in transgender health. Sound interesting? Below you will find a more detailed description of some of the duties and requirements for this position.
Lyon-Martin Health Services (LMHS) is a fast-paced, innovative community health center in San Francisco. We are warm, welcoming, non-judgmental and down-to-earth. Our patients are women, lesbians, bisexual women, transgender and genderqueer/nonbinary people who are diverse in age, diverse in ethnicity and diverse in social circumstance.
The health center was founded in response to a lack of understanding for how to provide evidence-based health care to lesbians. Today, the health center responds to gaps in care for all women and transgender people, providing primary care and integrated behavioral health services to create a medical “home” for our patients. LMHS stands at the forefront of lesbian and transgender health care issues, and has assumed a position of national prominence in the area of LGBT health services.
In March of 2015, we underwent a strategic merger with HealthRIGHT 360. While preserving each organization’s unique specializations and orientation to care, the strategic alliance bolsters both groups in the changing landscape of healthcare under the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
