Salud Medical Center Admin Assistant on the Road to Leadership
WOODBURN – An Oregon native is advancing her career. Recently accepted into an administrative fellowship, Amanda Hill will continue her path to a career in health care administration with Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic, locally known as Salud Medical Center and Pacific Pediatrics in Woodburn. She will continue with the organization as one of its newest fellows in the Sollus Northwest Administrative Fellowship program for the 2019-2020 program year.
She completed her undergraduate degree at Western Oregon University and finished her masters while working fulltime at Salud Medical Center as an administrative assistant.
“I have witnessed the profound impacts our clinics have on our communities. Our clinics offer services to patients who may otherwise not have access to care,” she said. “I’m so excited to put to use the skills and knowledge I will gain from this fellowship to continue serving my neighbors.”
The Sollus Northwest Administrative Fellowship program is a postgraduate fellowship that fosters the development of individuals committed to the patient population of federally qualified community health centers, and to careers in health care administration. This fellowship has three key components: orientation, project-based training, and community service.
The goal of the program is that fellows will gain a greater understanding of the unique dynamics of a Community Health Center, develop, and prepare the next generation of leaders at Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic.
“We are so proud that this year’s fellows are part of our current staff,” CEO Carlos Olivares said.
