Your time at work should be fulfilling. Rewarding. Inspiring. That is what you?ll find when you join Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP). At BHCHP over 12,000 men, women, and children experiencing homelessness are seen each year. We are committed to ensuring that every one of these individuals has access to comprehensive health care, from preventative dental services to cancer treatment. You will find challenging and satisfying work every day alongside people who share the same drive and compassion as you do.

At the Barbara McInnis House, BHCHP's medical respite facility, our committed staff provide short-term medical and recuperative services for adults experiencing homelessness who are far too sick for life in shelters but not sick enough for the hospital. You will join a collaborative leadership team that works collectively to oversee the daily operations and medical care of its 104 patients.

  • Participating in weekly Medical Respite operational meetings including the Respite Leadership meetings and the Length of Stay meeting.
