Who We Are
It takes a wide range of amazing people to achieve the mission of White Bird Clinic and to be successful in the work that we do. We provide compassionate humanistic healthcare and supportive services to individuals in our community, so that everyone receives the care they need. In times of crisis, White Bird is a key agency in the continuum of care for our community. We are Lane County’s Crisis Intervention Service and operate CAHOOTS, a mobile crisis and medic response team for Eugene-Springfield’s Public Safety System.
White Bird is a Federally Qualified Health Center that receives funds from the HRSA Health Center Program to provide primary care services and offers emergency, preventative, and restorative dental care. Uninsured patients are charged on a sliding scale based on income. We provide substance use, end-of-life, and mental health counseling. Benefits assisters can connect clients to OHP and SSI/SSDI supports as well as lifeline phone services and SNAP benefits. Our priority is to serve people who are unserved, underinsured, disabled and/or homeless.
Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply for jobs if they don’t meet every one of the qualifications listed. We are interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be one who comes from a less traditional background. If you meet key qualifications for the job, and believe you would be the best fit, we encourage you to apply. Please use your cover letter to explain how you will accomplish parts of the job for which you have less experience. If you are unsure whether you meet the qualifications of this position, please feel free to contact HR at HR@whitebirdclinic.org or 541-342-8255.
