Job Description


Southwest Network provides integrated behavioral and physical health services, caring for both the mind and body for whole health and wellness. We provide treatment programs for seriously mentally ill adults and children and adolescents with complex emotional and behavioral needs. We are committed to their recovery, and we work together to offer hope, support individual goals, encourage self-sufficiency, and change lives. We do whatever is needed for the individuals and families we serve.

We truly understand how important our employees are to those they care for, and how critical they are to our mission. As one of our employees, we will look after as many of your professional and personal needs as we can and make sure your work environment is productive, yet pleasant and informal. We are committed to offering you opportunities for personal and career growth, and we value and reward innovation, collaboration, dedication, and strength.


In the treatment of children and adolescents, we are known for getting youth in quickly, treating even the most challenging cases, offering helpful parent and family support, and providing quality, compassionate care. Using the nationally recognized Child and Family Team process and with treatment tailored to each persons strengths, needs, and culture, youth can stay in the home, be productive in school, and have a hopeful future. Integrated health services address both behavioral and physical health issues, and special programs for teens and young adults help them realize their potential and become independent adults. We also collaborate with the Arizona Department of Child Safety to provide families involved in child welfare with comprehensive service plans which integrate all aspects of care and treatment. All members of the team practice in a manner that is consistently mindful of the 12 Principles of The Arizona Vision for Children.

As a member of our medical team, you will collaborate with members of a professional, experienced clinical care team to provide integrated physical and behavioral health care. You'll enjoy working with people who are not only dedicated, but progressive and who encourage clinical innovation and new, empirically based best practice programs.

You will treat the whole patient, utilizing a broad range of skills, with an understanding of the unique strengths, needs, and culture of each individual and their family. You will see patients regularly over long periods of time, build relationships with them, and be able to affect long-term change in their lives.

Although the position is challenging, youll have a flexible schedule, no hospital rounds, and minimal on-call responsibilities so youll have time to enjoy your personal life and everything Arizona has to offer.

We offer a generous compensation and benefits package, paid malpractice insurance, and continuing education opportunities. In addition, we have teaching affiliations with local and national universities, and because all our sites are approved by the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), you may be able to take advantage of their loan repayment and scholarship program. We are also willing to sponsor J-1 and H-1B visas.


In this crucial role, you will direct, coordinate and provide medical/clinical services to our underserved and often critically ill members. You will provide clinical assessments, progress notes, annual psychiatric updates, family interventions and other diagnostic assessments to enhance the medical, psychological, social, and behavioral aspects of our members lives.
