About Us:

Cityblock Health is the first tech-driven provider for communities with complex needs-bringing better care to where it's needed most, block by block. Founded in 2017 on the premise that "health is local" and based in Brooklyn, we are backed by Alphabet's Sidewalk Labs along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.

Our mission is to improve the health of underserved communities. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we meet our members where they are, bringing care into the home and neighborhoods through our community-based care teams and Virtual Care offerings.

In close collaboration with community-based organizations, local providers, and leading health plans, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. Equipped with world-class, custom care delivery technology, we deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services to deliver a radically better experience of care for every member and community we serve.

Over the next year, we'll grow quickly to bring better care to many more members and their communities. To do this, we need people who, like us, believe that everyone should have good care for what matters to them, in their community.

Our work is grounded in a belief in the power of a diverse community. To close gaps in care and advance equity in the communities we serve, we have to start with making our own team diverse and inclusive. Our ways of working are characterized by creativity, collaboration, and mutual learning that comes from bringing together a community from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We strive to ensure that every person on the Cityblock team, and every Cityblock member, feels supported and included as a part of our community.

Our Values:

  • Aim for Understanding

  • Be All In

  • Bring Your Whole Self

  • Lean Into Discomfort

  • Put Members First

About our Team:

We employ a field-based, home-based care model and are committed to meeting members where they are--in their homes, in their community, and in our Hubs. You will go above and beyond to connect with Cityblock members in a non-judgmental, respectful and empathic manner, to meet their needs, and to provide feedback to the system as a whole as we strive to do better every day.

About the Role:

In this role, you will provide direct services to members, who face economic and social challenges in addition to having mental and physical health needs, through our innovative care model. It is integral to our care model that we meet people where they are, both physically and emotionally. You will be part of our first clinical "hub," a primary care practice that in many respects will look more like a community center than a doctor's office. Additionally, you may be required to provide care in members' home and community, extending out in the surrounding neighborhood and community. You will be part of an interdisciplinary care team, focusing on clinical visits taking place in our clinical hub and in the community.

This position will report to the Operations Manager and is a key member of the Cityblock care team and plays an integral role in defining and delivering a state-of-the-art experience to Cityblock members.

Requirements for the Role:

  • You have 3+ years of experience working in a clinical operations setting

  • You are minimally certified as a medical assistant

  • You are certified in phlebotomy

  • Willingness to travel and conduct home based visits

  • You enjoy working as part of a team and enjoy being a team player who jumps in wherever necessary

  • You are eager to be part of an interdisciplinary team, including physicians, nurses, social workers, community health partners. You are knowledgeable of examination, diagnostic and treatment room procedures

  • You have an awareness of common safety hazards and precautions

  • You are comfortable working with new computer applications aimed at providing an innovative experience for our members and our care teams

  • You have the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with members and other care team members

  • You have excellent communication skills, including the ability to effectively interact with all members of the care team, and with members of the public

  • You are comfortable using a variety of computer systems, and have familiarity with electronic health record systems

  • You are compassionate, open-minded, and non-judgmental

  • You have the ability to think quickly and solve problems in the moment

What We'd Like From You:

  • A resume and/or LinkedIn profile
  • A short cover letter, please!

Cityblock values diversity as a core tenet of the work we do and the populations we serve. We are an equal opportunity employer, indiscriminate of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, disability, genetic information, or any other protected characteristic.

Medical Clearance (for Member-Facing Roles):

You must complete Cityblock's medical clearance requirements, which include, but may not be limited to, evidence of immunity to MMR, Hepatitis B, Varicella, and a TB screen, or have an approved medical or religious accommodation that precludes you from being vaccinated against these diseases.

Covid 19 Update - Please Read:

Cityblock requires those hired into this position to provide proof that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine. Any individuals subject to this requirement may submit for consideration a request to be exempted from the requirement (based on a valid religious or medical reason) on forms to be provided by Cityblock. Such requests will be subject to review and approval by the Company, and exemptions will be granted only if the Company can provide a reasonable accommodation in relation to the requested exemption. Note that approvals for reasonable accommodations are reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis and availability of a reasonable accommodation is not guaranteed. This vaccination requirement is based, in part, on recently established government requirements. The requirement is also based on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine in protecting against COVID-19, and our shared responsibility for the health and safety of members, colleagues, and community.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the health and lives of people around the world, including the vulnerable populations Cityblock serves. As a healthcare provider, Cityblock holds ourselves to the highest standards when promoting the health and safety of those who we serve. Given that the COVID-19 vaccines are one of the most powerful tools to fight this disease and save lives, Cityblock is implementing a COVID-19 booster mandate for Washington, D.C. employees under the guidance of local/state mandates.
