Registered Nurse-Case Manager, Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital
SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act as a non-profit health consortium which serves the health interests of the residents of Southeast Alaska. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic, now the Ethel Lund Medical Center, and took over operation of Sitka’s Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in 1986. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.
This position functions within the MEH Outpatient Department to assist patients and medical staff within the ambulatory care setting by providing case management services to an identified patient panel.
This position works as part of a team consisting of RN’s, Medical Providers, and unlicensed clinical assistants. The Case Manager assists patients with their short and long-term medical needs by setting goals collaboratively with other departments and/or agencies. Additionally, the RN Case Manager works closely with appropriate staff in the referral process and offers assistance when required. As necessary, the RN Case Manager may work in other nursing roles so departmental functions are covered on a daily basis.
