Careers at Community Nurse!

Are you mission-minded? Does working with a team of individuals to solve a common social need inspire you? Community Nurse Health Center (CNHC) may be a good fit for you! In addition to serving the low-income patients of Chicago’s western suburbs and other nearby communities, CNHC is a viable economic resource and member of the La Grange Business Association (LGBA) and West Suburban Chamber of Commerce and Industry (WSCCI). In short, CNHC also provides jobs!

Since 1921, CNHC has been a health care leader providing services to residents of the near western suburbs of Chicago, and since 2012 has been a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) focused on removing barriers to essential health care for the low-income population residing here. We are looking for dedicated and talented professionals who are mission-minded individuals committed to providing affordable, accessible and high-quality care to people in need.

Community Nurse Health Center comprises a team of individuals dedicated to lifting-up the children and adults in our service area that might otherwise “fall through the cracks” and who may not have received the medical, dental, and behavioral health care they need. Our skilled health care professionals have an evidence-based approach to the practice of integrated physical, oral, and behavioral health and there is a synergy among our health care teams that our patients benefit from in the delivery of health care.
