    Position Announcement



    Casa de Salud (“Casa”) is the premier healthcare resource for the foreign-born community of metropolitan St. Louis. The mission of Casa is to facilitate and deliver high-quality clinical and mental healthcare primarily to the immigrant community, who are often uninsured and encounter barriers to accessing other forms of care. Casa partners with volunteer physicians and health & human service agencies throughout the region to foster health and hope so people can become productive participants in our community.

    Casa opened in January of 2010 with intention of filling a significant void in accessing care for the immigrant community of the St. Louis region, especially uninsured Latinos. In the subsequent years, Casa doubled the size of its clinic and tripled its patient volumes, now serving as many as 500 patients per month, seven days per week. In 2018 it opened a new 3,850 square foot expansion to provide behavioral health services to its clients.

    Casa’s main services are primary care for illness and injury, mental health counseling, case management, and care coordination. The GUIA program (meaning “guide” in Spanish, and in English standing for “Guides for Understanding, Information and Access”) makes approximately 150 referrals to other sources of care each month and actively manages as many as 300 patient cases. Casa also has on-site partners offering pediatric dental, optometry, and vaccinations. To learn more, please visit us at
