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:

As an Outreach Specialist, you are responsible for locating and connecting with pregnant and postpartum members who would benefit from the Cityblock care model, and engaging with them around their needs. This initial series of conversations with members begin the intake process, and are the stepping-off point from which a member is connected to a Perinatal Community Health Partner to develop a long-term relationship that includes but is not limited to doula support. Until this connection is fully made, you are the member’s point person, available and accessible to assist with whatever may be needed, to troubleshoot, to educate, and to be a listening ear. You work alongside, and are supported by, each member’s care team.

  • Engage and foster trust quickly with members, acting as the face of Cityblock and the key point-of-contact to assist members prior to full enrollment, or that of their newborns
  • Provide telephonic, written, digital and face to face outreach and engagement services for each eligible member. This includes member events, group welcome events and community outreach events.
  • Leverage available data from Commons to learn more about potential members and inform outreach processes.
  • Complete intake and consent process for eligible members, and seamlessly hand off to the Perinatal Community Health Partner upon full enrollment, building a deep understanding of our programs in order to offer members immediate value
  • Meet with members in their homes, neighborhoods, and the Cityblock health hub to achieve individual and team metrics and shift outcomes.
  • Go above and beyond to connect with members and their supports in a non-judgmental, respectful and empathic manner, to meet needs, and to provide feedback to our system as a whole as we strive to do better every day.
  • Work daily within Commons, our care management platform, to collect data, organize information, track tasks, and communicate with staff, patients, and family members.
  • Provide feedback to the product development team, and, over time, becoming part of a super-user group to assist in onboarding and supporting others.

This role is expected to be:

  • Member-facing
  • Based both in visits to member homes (25%) and remote work (75%)

Requirements for the Role:

  • 0-2 years of experience
  • Unrestricted Driver's License and Personal Vehicle
  • Prior doula training or interest in doula certification preferred, not required

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.

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.
