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 people 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 Associate Medical Director, you will be part of a team of clinical leaders providing direct support to care teams who provide services to members who face economic and social challenges in addition to having mental and physical health needs, through our innovative care model. Your work, and that of the staff you oversee, will frequently take you out into the field and surrounding community. You will also play an important role in developing a proof of concept of our care model and our custom-built care facilitation platform.
You will be responsible for providing medical support to the clinical staff of multiple locations in the market, collaborating with our partners, and participating in the development and refinement of clinical practices and policies.

  • You will identify and collaborate closely with existing outpatient behavioral health providers, primary care providers and specialists to promote shared decision making in our member's health and successfully co-manage (WRAP) members
  • You will also have the opportunity to be the Primary Provider for members without identified PCPs and work with members longitudinally to achieve their goals, though your primary responsibility will be to supervise and support APCs in delivering their care
  • Be available for triage and case discussion with other clinicians on the care team
  • Participate in at least 4 hours/week of strategic, clinical committees meetings and work to support Cityblock's programs across our markets
