If you want to work where the action is, University Health (UH) is the place for you. Known as "Kansas City's Essential Hospital," UH is the safety net healthcare system for Jackson County/Kansas City. We are an academic medical center, serving as the primary teaching institution for the UMKC Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. A 547-bed, not-for-profit health system, UH delivers the highest-quality medical care for our patients, with compassion, empathy, and unparalleled dedication to service. During the 2020 pandemic, we also stepped forward as a regional leader in COVID care and testing. UH is comprised of three campuses:

**UH Heath Sciences District** is located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The Health Sciences District represents a robust academic community, leading the forefront of biomedical research and cutting edge technology. Partnered with UMKC and Children's Mercy Hospital, University Health serves as the cornerstone in educating the next generation of healthcare practitioners. As a Level 1 Trauma Center, we're a leader in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care, with world-class expertise in chronic disease management and women's services, including high-risk maternity care. The Health Sciences District is also home to the University Health 1 building, UH's beautiful specialty outpatient clinics and day-surgery center. We have just opened University Health 2, which will house all of our primary care and women's care clinics.

**UH Lakewood** is located between Kansas City and Lee's Summit, Missouri, offering residents of Eastern Jackson County access to a modern community hospital with a continuum of outpatient services designed to meet the needs of families. UH Lakewood specializes in high-risk maternal and child care, and serves as one of the few Kansas City metro area institutions accredited by The Joint Commission in Orthopedics and Palliative Care. It also is home to a 188-bed, fully accredited long-term care center.

**UH Behavioral Health** is the KC metro area's largest, most comprehensive provider of mental health services. The **Healing Canvas Building** , located in Kansas City's vibrant Crossroads Arts District, is its epicenter, providing a broad list of outpatient services. We also offer psychiatric inpatient care, and we deliver therapeutic services through our community outreach clinics. We are a leader in the Trauma-Informed Care Movement, and provide training, coaching and consulting to outside organizations.

This position primarily works with adult clients.

Our Supportive Housing program is a Permeant Supportive Housing (PSH) through HUD. Our program provides housing to adults who have experienced chronic homelessness and experience mental illness. Upon receiving a client through the Jackson and Wyandotte Counties coordinated entry list, we provide them housing and start-up supplies, as well as the clinical support to help them in managing their mental health and living stably in their housing. Given the nature of the trauma that many of our clients have experienced by living outside and having a mental illness/substance use disorder, our clients can be intensive, therefore we work to provide wrap around support for them as a team. We practice Housing First when working with our clients. This position is a community based position which means this staff will be in clients home working with them (we provide PPE) and transporting clients as well (mileage is reimbursed).
