Kaiser Permanente, Medical Assistant Training Partner

“Once people started working for us, they often transferred to one of our facilities in an area with lower housing costs. JVS produced a customized program that delivered top candidates who were already committed to working in San Francisco. We are thrilled to hire people from our local community.” -Guy Chicoine, Medical Group Administrator at The Permanente Medical Group in San Francisco

Kaiser Permanente was one of JVS’s first partners to replicate and expand JVS’s refresher training for certified Medical Assistants. The company has gone above and beyond to give JVS candidates the training, experience and connections needed to secure positions at Kaiser Permanente.

In-Home Supportive Services Consortium, Training Partner

In Home Support Services Consortium (IHSS) is a non-profit organization that provides quality homecare services to seniors and people with disabilities, enabling them to live independently and safely in their homes and communities.

IHSS relies on JVS to hire well-trained homecare professionals — hiring up to 50% of JVS’s caregiver training program graduates each year. These clients come to JVS with few skills and limited education. They are often long-term unemployed, hoping to make a start in the growing healthcare industry. JVS’s pool of immigrants and non-native speakers is attractive to IHSS as it seeks culturally sensitive employees. IHSS is deeply invested in the professional growth of their employees, providing them with individualized development plans, access to resources, and opportunities for continuing education. IHSS also contributes to the development of JVS programs through leadership on JVS’s Healthcare Advisory Board. IHSS is one of the very few homecare employers that provides full-time work with medical and dental benefits for their employees.
