NurseWise, a nationwide multilingual nurse triage and health education provider, opened a new Clinical Care Center in Tucson, Ariz., Monday.
Increasing its service offerings in southern Arizona and stimulating the local economy with job opportunities, NurseWise now serves all eight counties south of Phoenix, incorporating Pima County into NurseWise's health service area and ensuring 210,000 additional citizens have access to key healthcare services.
"We are proud to have served Arizona since 1995, and this expansion further improves whole person health and crisis response in the Southern Arizona community," Kimberly D. Tuck, RN, NurseWise CEO, said. "Our new facility helps ensure residents receive the care they need at the moment they need it most and includes 100 percent follow-up on all crisis calls. This is vital to providing valuable resources and necessary support."
Unique to its service model is the Tribal Warm Line, which is NurseWise’s tribe-staffed peer service operated by residents who live and work independently in their own communities. The Tribal Warm Line offers a way for Native Americans to access healthcare services by communicating with other tribal members for care.
Opportunities are available for healthcare professionals at NurseWise's Tucson location. As a multilingual nurse advice provider, NurseWise actively solicits and welcomes bilingual applicants.
