Director, Real Estate at Cityblock Health
Who we are:
Cityblock Health is a new type of healthcare company, operating out of Brooklyn and backed by Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs, along with some of the top healthcare investors in the country.
Our mission is to radically improve the health of urban communities, one block at a time. Importantly, our solutions are designed specifically for Medicaid and lower-income Medicare beneficiaries, and we bring the capability to deliver care in the home and neighborhood with our field-based teams.
In close collaboration with community-based organizations and leading commercial partners, we are reorganizing the health system to focus on what matters to our members. We deliver personalized primary care, behavioral health, and social services through a network of neighborhood hubs with deep community-based partnerships and world-class technology.
We partner with payers and at-risk providers, accepting capitated financial risk to care for their most vulnerable, high and rising risk members. Additionally, we invest in strategic partnerships with community-based and social services organizations, in some instances bringing them into the value equation through sub-capitation and performance-based compensation.
Over the next year we’ll grow quickly, including entering new markets, each with their own commercial relationships and field-based teams. This role will be a key contributor to the success of our business.
We’re seeking a collaborative, execution-oriented Director of Real Estate and Procurement to oversee and drive the development and launch of physical spaces that support our corporate teams and our clinical teams. The Director of Real Estate & Procurement will be responsible for overseeing Cityblock’s real estate strategy, including establishing design principles of physical spaces and managing the end-to-end process of launching new spaces. This leader will also oversee Cityblock’s procurement strategy, including sourcing materials, merchandise and supplies that are needed across Cityblock’s offices. The ideal candidate has real estate management, vendor contracting and operations supply chain experience. You will help frame the long-term strategy for Cityblock branded spaces, launch new office and clinic spaces, and create a strategic sourcing platform for Cityblock’s supplies vendors.
