Diabetes Case Manager
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.
Responsible for maintaining a formal comprehensive diabetes education program encompassing medical/clinical providers, physical therapist, mental health practitioners, health educators, and monitoring equipment which will provide eligible patients with the tools and support from ELMC to self manage their diabetes thus reducing chronic care costs.
The responsibility of this position is to educate, coordinate, and monitor patients with diabetes and related chronic diseases through participation in a multi-disciplinary team of Health Care Professionals from a variety of settings within the Consortium.
At SEARHC, we see our employees as our strongest assets. It is our priority to further their development and our organization by aiding in their professional advancement. Working at SEARHC is more than a job, it’s a fulfilling career.
We offer generous benefits, including retirement, paid time off, paid parental leave, health, dental, and vision benefits, life insurance and long and short-term disability, and more.
