Company Overview

Orchid Health was founded with the mission of solving the problems and inefficiencies of modern American healthcare and to make sure no patient or community lacked access due to the current system. Our founders spent years working with a number of Oregon’s top healthcare thought leaders, primary care providers, and most importantly our community members in order to improve the health and well-being of all patients and to create a comprehensive primary care model based on quality, compassion, and innovation.

We know it takes special people to work in healthcare and we are committed to providing our people with an enriching and rewarding environment. Being on our team is an experience filled with hard work, opportunity, creativity, and teamwork. We seek service-minded, talented, and innovative RN who can help us redesign healthcare in order to best serve our communities while expanding our model to underserved communities across the state.
