Partners in Care Foundation was established in 1997 with a mission to design and implement new models of evidence-based care that address the key social determinants of health. Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, Partners In Care Foundation raises the quality and effectiveness of community-based healthcare and social services, while also simplifying the delivery of those services, and in so doing, creates a continuum of care that can better help everyone.
President and CEO June Simmons attributes Partner in Care Foundation’s record of success to what she describes as their most important asset: their caring, professional, and hard-working staff. At Partners in Care Foundation they deeply value the contributions of each and every one of their 140-strong team. Simmons shares that the most important skill an employee may possess is the ability to connect and create relationships with their colleagues, clients and the community they serve.
They are a national leader in innovative health preventive practices with a special focus on social determinants of health, which account for all the social, environmental and external factors that may affect a person’s overall health outcome. The agency provides a great opportunity for high energetic social workers interested in broader systemic change.
Partners in Care Foundation is looking at reallocating resources away from medical interventions towards social service intervention in order to prevent illnesses before they transpire. Their social workers are taking a nationally-recognized leading role in deploying clear evidence-based models of care, like hospital-to-home care transitions and health self-management education. And Partners’ social work team is proud to be working with dozens of community-based organizations across California to build a network that contracts with health plans and other healthcare industry payers to spread evidence-based home and community interventions for improved population health.
Simmons states that a great way to stand out from a pool of applicant of social workers is to demonstrate the ability to hold and master evidence based approaches, to continuously learn, ask thoughtful questions, and develop new models of care. Partners in Care Foundation and the Network for Social Work Management both seek to shape future social work leader into innovative, thought provoking agents of change.
