Location and Space Details:
Growing clinic seeking a healthcare provider to join our Body Positive, LGBTQ centered practice. The office is in SW, on the fourth and top floor of a beautiful 100 year old brick building – right on the Max line, on the North side of the main library. The provider would run their business independently but share the perks of a collaborative and supportive practice.

The available space is furnished with a desk, massage table, and is soon to have a NMT/Chiropractic table. There is a third treatment room is shared between the 3 of us. It has a small sink, centrifuge, OB/Gyn table. We are set up with Quest Diagnostics for labs. Sharing of basic medical supplies is definitely possible.

What we are looking for in a provider:
There is potential for inter-office referral, our hope is to find a practitioner who is very informed about trans and queer health.

Utilization of harm reduction and body/size-positive approaches are essential.

This opportunity is the best of two worlds. You get a great place to practice medicine, be independent, and grow as you wish – plus you get the support of marketing and referrals from us.
