In order to increase the appeal of the job listings in Pennsylvania, and to create an atmosphere of partnership across health care facilities in the commonwealth, the Pennsylvania Primary Care Career Center (the Career Center) and the Pennsylvania Association of Community Health Centers (PACHC) will allow non-organizational members with a facility in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to post job openings on the Career Center website and the Pennsylvania state page on the National Rural Recruitment and Retention Network (3RNet).  




Pennsylvania Primary Care Career Center 

The Career Center is a joint venture of PACHC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Its goal is to recruit and retain primary care providers for Pennsylvania’s safety-net facilities and other primary care practices. Jobs are posted on the Career Center’s website, 



3RNet is a national non-profit organization dedicated to increasing access to health care in rural and underserved areas. The 3RNet website brings together healthcare professionals with job opportunities in rural and underserved communities throughout the country. Each state has one member responsible for the job postings on the website. You may visit this website at:


Small Nonprofit

A small nonprofit is defined as a non-profit organization with less than $5 million annual revenue.


Large Nonprofit and Small For-Profit

A large nonprofit is defined as a nonprofit organization with annual revenue exceeding $5 million. A small for-profit healthcare entity is defined as a business or organization, such a small medical practice, that does not qualify for tax-exempt status and has less than $5 million in annual revenue.


Large For-Profit

A large for-profit healthcare entity is defined as a business or organization that does not qualify for tax-exempt status and has annual revenue exceeding $5 million.

Organizational Members

Organizational members are defined as federally qualified health centers, federally qualified health center look-alikes, and non-profit rural health clinics that pay the organizational-level membership fee to PACHC. They receive free job listings, which are posted and maintained by the Career Center staff on both the Career Center and 3RNet websites. Organizational members receive referrals of potential candidates, timely updates regarding workforce initiatives, technical assistance, and other resources.
