Circle of Wellness Clinic

Thank you for your interest in our outreach health clinic. When fully functional, our clinic will provide care of minor illnesses, health promotion and wellness-based interventions across the lifespan from volunteer providers. We will not be providing primary care, but we will function as a referral base for those in need of primary or specialty medical care.

Our clinic will not be treating chronic pain or dispensing scheduled drugs. The care that we will provide is free and we will not be accepting or billing insurance companies. Our clinic is scheduled to open September 2019.

Our immediate need is for the following:

Clinic Administrator (volunteer) – This person will work with the South Whidbey Community Center director and clinic founder/medical provider to help build the clinic infrastructure. The ideal person will have a background in health care administration or public health administration. This position is for a non-licensed person and direct patient care is not required. The commitment is 8 hours per week.

As we work to build our clinic volunteer provider staff, we are in need of the following individuals to donate at least two to four hours per week:

Registered Nurses - Naturopathic Physicians

Medical Providers (family practice and pediatrics) (particularly those who are CDL certified)

Massage Therapists - Acupuncturists - Licensed Clinical Social Workers

Please note: You must have an active license in order to volunteer as a clinic provider. Our clinic participates in the Washington state’s Volunteer Retired Provider (VRP) program. The Volunteer and Retired Providers (VRP) Program supports healthcare volunteerism in Washington State by paying malpractice insurance premiums for U.S. licensed healthcare volunteers providing care to underserved patients.

Volunteers who use their Washington State professional license only for volunteer work are also eligible for license renewal. All professional license costs are covered (other than late fees and testing fees).
