LPN (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 18, 2017
High volume facilities. If you're lucky you get to work with phenomenal providers and nurse managers. In some, it will have you running for the door. Although the culture of the company tries to foster respect, the notion is lost on some managers.

Call Center Specialist (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – March 28, 2017
CHN is an ideal work place. I admire that they actually try to stick to the company's mission statement. As with any other work place there are issues with management but CHN attempts to keep their employees happy, for the most part. It's a good place to work for.

Community Healthcare Network is non profit orginization serving the underserved communities.They are all about profit and the employees can burn with gasoline pants .The union does as much as they can.In order to have unity; employees must unite.They are petrified of management.There is a front of community care.Yet all superior managment does not reflect the communities they serve.Most senior managment posts are not held by minorities or women.The few people that was there got fired for frivilous instances.I know the job market is tight ; but save yourself the headaches.

Working with this organization isn't terrible, but there are A LOT of cons. I've encountered too many unprofessional individuals with management positions. Who you know matters here the most. A lot of favoritism and gossip carry on here. If you can get passed all the foolishness, you'll be fine working here. The foolishness does become tiring though.
Management seems to have an issue communicating to staff respectfully.
Anonymous (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 4, 2017
The job is not hard but the people in management makes the job difficult. The minute you put your foot down and speak up you become the bad person. All favoritism. People there weren't doing their job before so you're caught up in the person's mess before you. I wouldn't recommend working there.

Primary Care Physician (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – May 22, 2016
Unique clinic the provides primary care for mostly non-English speaking clients. Excellent work environment. Hardest part of the job is finding specialty care physicians and obtaining some medications. Learned that giving instructions to patient has to be culturally sensitive and abundantly clear. Enjoyed the feeling that I am giving care to the truly needy.
Grateful patients, job satisfaction

Call Center Specialist (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 5, 2016
I've been with community healthcare network for 3 1/12 years. My experience with this company has been bitter and sweet. The company has great opportunity to grow with the company, if you know the right people. I'm grateful for the learning experience, my fellow co workers, which became family and the patients that showed appreciation for our services.
Provides great services for the community
Most of the higher superiors belittled several staff members
Call Center Specialist (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 16, 2015
I enjoy the challenges the position offers. At first it seemed extremely overwhelming, but now with the support and help of my peers I have more confidence in my ability to understand the patients needs and assist them to the best of my knowledge.
Assist the Care Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2015
A typical day for me at work when I'm working with my patient and being able to provide all the services they need. I learned how to provide best services with best quality to my patients. I work with great coworkers, we help each other as needed. The hardest part of my job is when you try to have the entire caseload with a core services for the month. The most enjoyable part at my job is, each day you learn something new with your patient and coworkers.

L.P.N / Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – October 21, 2014
This was the best years of my career thus far, I worked with a supportive staff as well as a knowledgeable NA who always pushed me to do and want more. Allowing me to be the only charge nurse that was a LPN out of 9 clinics. Unfortunately my mother became ill and I needed to be with her for some time and the hours weren't feasible and I had to move on with much regret but plenty of knowledge.
experience, benefits, supportive collegues and reasonable compliant patients
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 20, 2014
On a typical day I am looking forward to providing excellent patient care to all my patients whom include adults and children. I learned many things from start to present and that is that if my patients are not happy neither am I. I enjoy working with my coworkers, we all work as a team to help make sure that our workplace is running efficiently and effectively. The hardest part of my job I would say would be drawing blood from children as it pains me to see them in pain but I do my best to make them feel less afraid in the moment. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be ensuring quality care. The best care I know to give because I love to care for others it is my passion.
Racism from Hispanics, horrible , childish and gossiping work environment
Care Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx – September 29, 2014
This is by far the MOST unprofessional work environment to ever exist. If you are offered a position to work at the Kelly street site, in the Health Homes Care Coordination Department, run and never look back! The Care Coordinators are very juvenile, backstabbing and are not concerned about employees at all, they are only concerned about patients and back billing for service that were never rendered! The Senior Management get their rocks off by trying to intimidate Care Managers with horrible scare tactics, and even witnessed several Care Managers CRYING after horrible " supervision" meetings!! A dedicated Care Manager was stripped of his title and pension right before he was to retire, and this is just a tip of the iceberg that happens at the Kelly Street site, so to all my fellow job seekers, you have been warned!! Lots of the employees has got their positions Bc they were grandfathered in by previous positions held at COBRA, and Bc they are " related" to the disgustingly rude Senior Management, as as a result, lots of culo kissing!!! There is also lots of overt racism from Hispanics towards African Americans, especially if you are Articulate, driven and educated!!!! Overall, pay is not worth the caseload you are provided with, in comparison to other prestigious clinics in NYC. Peace and Numerous Blessings to All!!
