This is not your typical Medical Assistant role. If drawing labs and taking vitals is what you are looking for, this is not the job for you. But, if you want to be paid to spend meaningful time with the patients we serve, helping remove barriers to care and social isolation, keep reading!
At Engooden Health, we provide exceptional quality of telephonic care to patients living with two or more chronic conditions.

You will also join an organization that wants to help you grow your career in healthcare, that lives its core values in every way, and builds its strategies around how to give patients better care.
