140716helpinghand smEugene Pediatrics and Thrive Behavioral Health are excited to add a fantastic new member to our integrated team of primary care providers and behavioral specialists — Jordan Burbee, our new case manager. Welcome, Jordan!

But what is a case manager?

  • Someone who steps in when medically fragile children need help coordinating their care.
  • Someone who reaches out when children and families are touched by challenges such as drug addiction, domestic violence, mental health issues, homelessness and legal problems.
  • An advocate who helps families coordinate their care at Eugene Pediatrics, Thrive Behavioral Health, the school system and other community services.
  • A liaison with the Department of Human Services when our patients are being watched over by the state.
  • A professional who can assess the needs of a struggling family by visiting a home or school, and who can become part of the lives of family members as they find their bearings.
  • A friendly voice when parents need extra support.

And who is Jordan Burbee?

Jordan received a degree in Family and Human Services at the University of Oregon. She has subsequently worked for more than a decade with children and families at Jasper Mountain, Safe Center, Lane Education Service District and, most recently, DHS Child Welfare.

Jordan is a mother of two young children, and most importantly, she is a human being with a huge heart for taking care of others. When I met Jordan, I was struck immediately by her passion to help — to be a part of positive change for kids. She spoke of the importance of her work at DHS, and of her desire to become involved in a team of people seeking to prevent children from suffering.
