Job Description

Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner
The Santa Cruz Community Health Centers (SCCHC) began as a women's health collective in 1974 with the mission to improve the health of our patients and the community and advocate the feminist goals of social, political, and economic equality. Now, 40 years later, we serve that same mission as a nonprofit Federally Qualified Health Center operating two separate sites: the Santa Cruz Womens Health Center in downtown Santa Cruz serving women and children; and our new East Cliff Family Health Center in Live Oak, serving everyone.

The SCCHC has a diverse patient population and an engaging and friendly work environment. Our caring and committed staff works as a team to fulfill our mission so that all of our patients have access to comprehensive, quality health care.

We are seeking Physician Assistants or Nurse Practitioners (part-time or full-time) to join our growing team.
The Santa Cruz Community Health Centers are situated on the Monterey Bay, close to Silicon Valley and an hours drive from the San Francisco Bay Area. Santa Cruz is not only a place, its a lifestyle. With our strong surf culture, enticing State Parks and Beaches, conscientious living and a Mediterranean climate, Santa Cruz offers endless opportunities for you and your family.
Santa Cruz County residents enjoy an abundance of outdoor activities, arts and culture, and diverse educational opportunities. Fertile Central Coast farmland offers fresh, local, organic produce through farmers markets nearly every day of the week. The community attracts and hosts an eclectic array of cultural happenings. Creativity and individuality thrive here. Stimulating educational opportunities are available at the University of California Santa Cruz, Cabrillo College and top-rated public schools.
