Members are the heart of 3RNet's national network. This highlight of our associate member in Texas, Texas Association of Community Health Centers, comes to us from TACHC's employee and dedicated 3RNet member Anita Mitchell.
With more than 70 member centers throughout the state, the Texas Association of Community Health Centers (TACHC) Recruitment and Retention Department provides recruitment assistance to over 200 clinics statewide. Texas Community Health Centers have been caring for families for more than 25 years and the R&R staff is dedicated to providing essential support to our members in recruiting passionate, high-caliber medical, dental and behavioral health providers to care for those in most need.
Our multispecialty clinics offer medical technology and include on-site labs, pharmacies, dental care, full spectrum primary care and behavioral health services to the community it serves. TACHC R&R staff source quality leads that match center opportunity profiles identified via preliminary phone interviews and background checks. We offer recruitment support for member organizations seeking primary care and dental physicians, behavioral health and advance (NPs/PAs) providers, and c-level administrative executive staff.
While each Center has its own unique style, benefit and incentive packages, our goal is to recruit mission-driven, dedicated providers and leaders who are seeking to serve in a community with passion and purpose. See what the Medical Director at Brownsville Community Health Center (BCHC) had to say:
“Twenty years of service is a lifetime for a clinician in a community health center (CHC). I am extremely proud to have achieved this milestone. Clinicians at BCHC choose to stay not because we have no better options or have fewer credentials. In fact, we have some of the best doctors and clinicians in town. We practice at a community health center because we share its values and beliefs. We are idealists. We are dreamers. We have also survived this long because we know how to be realistic. When I interviewed for this position, I was not promised “the moon and the stars”. I was, however, offered a “Brownsville view of the moon and the stars” (literally and figuratively). Someone said that “ideals are like stars, you really never come to possess them, but in reaching out for them, you achieve your personal destiny”. At the Clinic, not only did I become the best of who I think I can be, most importantly I found my “true self”. And that, is the greatest personal achievement one could possibly aspire in life." - Henry L. Imperial, Medical Director, Brownsville Community Health Center
