"I've been at Zumbro Valley for just over a year now in the IRTS department, and it's been such an amazing experience! Everyone here is so supportive and will go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your role. Because of that support, it has provided me with the opportunity to serve our clients to the best of my ability!"

-Stephanie Higley, ZVRT Health Coordinator


Why Zumbro Valley Health Center

At Zumbro Valley Health Center, our employees aren't just working - we're building meaningful careers. Our employees have ample opportunities to grow in their profession, share their voice, and make a difference in the lives of their colleagues and clients.

With the perfect blend of compassion, knowledge, and dedication, we are truly honored to be part of our clients' healing journey.

"I have been an employee with Zumbro Valley Health Center for the past 26 years. Throughout my tenure, I have been given the opportunity to work within several different ZVHC program areas, all while learning, growing and building my own skill set. Over the many years, ZVHC has grown greatly, yet strives to provide care and support for the "entire well-being" of the people we serve. Knowing that you are making a difference in someone's life is rewarding. Having great co-workers, understanding and supportive supervisors, great community provider relationships and a relaxed atmosphere here in our ZVHC Fillmore site, all make it a great fit."

I’ve been on the ZV team as a mental health practitioner for almost 4 years now, and I can confidently say it’s the best organization I’ve ever been part of. The leadership at ZV is continually looking for ways to support its employees; I love feeling like I’m valued as a human being, not just as a number or a productivity measure. ZV has fostered both my personal and professional growth, and I am excited to continue growing here for many years to come.”
