    I worked at Central Care Community Health Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working with underserved population/ community health

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE!!!!!
    *High turn over- between the frequent "pink slips" and people quitting, there is an extremely high turnover rate. Administration is notorious for writing people up or firing people for no reason. Staff are micromanaged and treated like children versus the professionals that we are.Therefore, Four providers quit in 1 month and six providers in 9 months, and countless other employees.
    *$$$- administration only sees dollar signs. Every patient is a number that brings THEM money.They have and will compromise quality patient care for quantity. They allow the front desk to double and triple book patients which shortens time spent with patients and ability to address their needs. Providers are over worked with little compensation or accolades. Administration manages to give themselves bonuses and raises yet there are staff that have been there over one year and have not had a raise.
    *No supplies. The clinics constantly operate at subpar levels of necessary supplies that are needed to provide safe quality care. It takes months to get the supplies, on part because of mismanagement of funds and secondly because non clinical staff make purchasing decisions and don't know or understand the needs of a clinic.
    *mom&pop- this a mom & pop company that is trying to expand and grow at a pace way to fast for its unstable foundation. The idea of what they want to do is great, but the manner in which they do it won't get them anywhere.
    * there are NO perks to working here!!!! Everyone is overworked, overwhelmed and underpaid with horrible benefits. Many are hired under false pretenses. Staff has no voice, and concerns are rarely addressed, especially if it involves spending money and NOT making money.
    * UNPROFESSIONAL- administration is very unprofessional. They set a poor example of leadership in their lack of communication, organization, and management style.

    NOTE: I am a former employee because I quit, NOT because I got fired. Therefore this review is not coming from a disgruntled employee. It's coming from someone who loved what they did but worked for a company that made it hard to keep loving it and put up with their $&@! Any positive review is likely a ploy from admin to make CC look better than what it really is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in YOUR LANE!!! Do your job....write the grants and pay the bills. Hire appropriate staff for middle management of the clinical staff. Allow the CMO and nurse manager to make clinical decisions instead of the site manager. Learn to respect your employees and treat them fairly and you may be able to keep them longer than 1 year.

    Pros

    As a nurse you have the opportunity to work in a setting that allows you to assist patients who are very appreciative of the care you give, and folks come in for various reasons - wellness visits, acute, and preventive care so you are using all your skills alongside a great care team.

    Cons

    Administration is focused on numbers only and actually give front desk employees incentives if they book a certain number of appointments everyday. This results in the providers being way overbooked, sometimes with 20 or more patients in 4 hours. Not safe for anyone. The medical staff is "managed" by administrators who have no clinical background resulting in chaos and confusion among the employees. Central Care was cited by the Joint Commission for a high turnover rate but the administration's answer to all problems is to find someone to blame and terminate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the upper administration, including CEO, and get people in there that respect and value employees.
