With the mission of Community Health Center of Snohomish County to provide our diverse community with access to high quality, affordable primary health care, we are also aware that everyone’s health needs are not met through traditional modes of care delivery, which necessitates the need for us to connect with our patients and find out what works for them. What are the true barriers to our patients from receiving routine primary and dental care?
Mallory Lisk came to work for Community Health Center in September 2013 as our Community Relations Manager. During this time she worked closely with our community partners, educating them on the services CHC of Snohomish County provides, and was responsible for countless community outreach events. During this time, Mallory displayed a passion for outreach that could not be overlooked. She has a remarkable ability to connect with our patients, our community partners and bring it all together to benefit our patients. Mallory is always looking for new opportunities and new and unique ways to serve our patients.
In January 2017, Mallory transferred into the role of Community Outreach and Enrollment Manager. This is the first time CHC of Snohomish County has had a position like this and we were eager to see what Mallory would bring to the organization and our patients.
In the first eight months of her position, she has grown the Outreach Department to a staff of five Community Outreach Workers and eight Patient Eligibility and Enrollment Specialist.
In the month of August alone, the Outreach Department participated in ten outreach events connecting with over 618 families. Currently the Outreach Department provides in person assistance to seventeen community partners every month ranging from the County Jail to libraries, food banks and homeless shelters. All of these efforts helps connect the underserved with services that they need to improve their health.In addition to the patient centered outreach, Mallory currently attends twelve on-going meetings with community organizations to ensure that we have a voice in the community and that our patients’ needs and barriers do not get overlooked.
