The Ryan Network Idea
An important influence on the Ryan Network, former Congressman William F. Ryan laid the foundation for the Network when he said “healthcare is a right, not a privilege.” This has remained the main objective of all of our sites since the Network was born in 1967.
The six centers in Manhattan that make up the Ryan Network support culturally diverse communities most in need of medical assistance. Part of the Community Health Center movement, the Ryan Network strives to provide affordable, quality medical services at a fraction of the cost. Patients can expect to be treated with dignity, confidentiality and respect.
Working alongside the Ryan Network’s six primary sites (William F. Ryan, Ryan-NENA, Ryan/Chelsea-Clinton the Ryan Women and Children’s Center, Ryan/Adair and Ryan/Frederick Douglass), the Network’s service sites also include five community residence sites, six School-Based Health Centers and a fully equipped mobile medical van. The service sites are fully coordinated with all services at the main center sites.
A decade after being set up as a demonstration project in 1967, the William F. Ryan Community Health Center was established as a freestanding health care facility with its own community-controlled Board of Directors.
The Center’s stability, direction and quality of leadership led to its expansion in the late 1980s through a merger with the NENA Comprehensive Health Council, forming the Ryan-NENA Community Health Center. This also led to the center being granted a loan from a private lending institution to build a full-scale, 35,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility (the primary Ryan Center at 97th Street).
In 2001, the Ryan/Chelsea-Clinton Community Health Center opened in Midtown West, and in 2009 the Ryan/Adair Community Health Center opened in Harlem.
In June 2010, the Ryan Center opened the Women & Children’s Center, with a Women’s Health Department; Pediatric Department; Mental Health Department; Prevention, Education, and Outreach (PEO) Services; and a WIC/Nutrition Program. In June of 2016, the newest location, Ryan/Frederick Douglass, opened its doors on Frederick Douglass Blvd. in Harlem.
Four of the Ryan Network’s six primary sites have Medical Residency programs, which began at Ryan/Chelsea Clinton in 2007, at Ryan/Adair in 2009, and at William F. Ryan and Ryan-NENA in 2011. Residents and attending Preceptor Physicians are in place from Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital Centers.
Supervisors/team were great. Very supportive, productive and efficient.
Senior management is out of touch with boots on the ground. I find this is typical of most non-profits, however.
They are desperate. Will take anyone so don't sweat it. Do not be fooled by the talk of the "open door" policy and dedication to patient care. Ask about productivity requirements and what 'numbers' you will be expected to "meet".
