QMHP CAREER OPPORTUNITY IN THE BEAUTIFUL COLUMBIA GORGE!!

Are you a mental health clinician or therapist who is looking for a different direction in your career? If so, we may just have just the match you’re looking for!

We’re currently recruiting for the position of Quality Improvement Coordinator 2. This position will allow you to use your clinical knowledge and skills in auditing clinical records, training staff in clinical documentation best practices, analyzing data, and in investigating complaints. And while this position has no direct client contact, it is vitally important to our Agency in ensuring that our clients receive the best service possible!

Community behavioral health agencies sometimes get a bad rap! Yes, we’ve heard the stories. Don’t believe ‘em. Instead, come check us out for yourself! Community agencies are often the only source of treatment for people who have limited resources and, as such, agencies like ours are vitally important to the health of our rural communities. You’ll work with some really amazing colleagues and you’ll be able to maintain a regular, dependable schedule. And, since we’re rural but not inaccessible, it’s easy to zip over to Portland when you want to enjoy some city fun. But sitting in traffic for hours won’t be a part of your daily routine, and you’ll get to live in one of the most beautiful places anywhere!

The Agency: MCCFL is a quasi-governmental agency that provides behavioral health services within three counties in north-central Oregon – Hood River, Wasco and Sherman. We employ a recovery-oriented and trauma-informed approach in the services we provide to adults, children and families. MCCFL has adopted the Sanctuary Model throughout the Agency; Sanctuary informs both MCCFL’s employee relations and its communications. MCCFL was recently designated a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) as part of a two-year demonstration program. This program is part of a comprehensive effort to integrate behavioral health with physical health care, and it has the opportunity to dramatically improve healthcare in our communities.

The Job: This position is based in The Dalles and works as a member of our Quality Improvement Team. It provides primary staff consultation and training specific to clinical documentation, and it liaises with the MIS team to improve Electronic Health Record (EHR) system utilization and performance. It may also investigate complaints specific to our clinical services, as assigned.

Desired Attributes: Upon hire you’ll need to certify as a QMHP in the State of Oregon, so you’ll need that Master’s diploma! MCCFL seeks master’s-prepared applicants who possess a strong clinical documentation skill set as well as an eye for detail. You should also have great professional communication skills tempered by well-tuned emotional intelligence and a sense of humor. (See the full job announcement on the employment page of our website for all position requirements and essential functions.)

Compensation Package: MCCFL offers a 37.5 hour workweek and a generous public-employee benefit package that includes Oregon PERS, liberal vacation and sick leave accruals, and great holiday benefits. We offer a bonus for active Oregon LCSW or LPC licensure (one-time 3% bonus awarded after completion of the trial service period). The 5-step salary range is $4,515 - $5,488 per month; most applicants are hired at step one or step two of that range.

Application Process: Please see the full job announcement at https://www.mccfl.org/job/quality-improvement-coordinator-2/. There you’ll find a link to our employment application and all the information you need. (Yep, an application is required!) Applications are being reviewed on an ongoing basis until the position is filled. We can’t wait to hear from you!
