Mission: Providing comprehensive and affordable healthcare since 1967, the Ryan Center’s long, much-admired mission and caring culture was founded upon former Congressman William F. Ryan's belief that "health care is a right, not a privilege”.
I have been working at William F. Ryan Community Health Center full-time (More than a year)
IT Dept is an awesome and easy going team. Staff can be very welcoming. Good initiatives meant to really improve urgent care provision. Compensation is typically better than at other FQHCs or city positions.
The administration perpetuates a culture of fear, often intimidating staff passively. Lack of operational organization; HR dept is highly disorganized and hard to deal with; often catty environment; lack of focus on organizational unity, it's every man for himself. Can be difficult to move up/around in the org if not in the union because of red tape in place by HR and admin overlords. Lack of oversight and managerial support.
Advice to Management
There should be a stronger focus on proper patient care and less focus on enabling union staff to the detriment of non-union workers.
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".
