CPC Population Health VISTA - Health & Justice in RI
 
 
 
The Center for Primary Care (CPC), located in South Providence, is Rhode Island Hospital’s outpatient primary care and safety net clinic, serving 12,000 patients a year. The CPC serves low-income Rhode Islanders, with more than 80 percent of patients under- or un-insured. The CPC is also home to five “social medicine” programs: the Complex Care Clinic, the Refugee Clinic, the Recovery Clinic, the Transitions Clinic, and the Shower to Empower homeless outreach-medical partnership. The programs, which employ community health workers and provide wraparound services, serve particularly vulnerable Rhode Islanders: individuals with a history of frequent hospitalizations, lack of citizenship documentation, opioid use disorder, incarceration, and homelessness. This VISTA position will continue the work of the previous CPC Care Coordination VISTAs by further building the clinic’s capacity to provide additional supports and resources for these patients, develop new systems to improve clinic operations, and help clinic providers better address patients’ social determinants of health.
