Dear Friends and Volunteers of New Life Community Health Center,
The health center has seen significant progress this year in our efforts to receive Article 28 status with the New York State Department of Health. Following two public hearings in February, the NYS DOH Public Health and Health Planning Council gave conditional approval to our Certificate of Need (CON) Application for Article 28 status with 10 contingencies. On July 29, the NYS DOH Health Planning Council gave final approval of our CON Application and confirmed that all contingencies had been met.
As we work through a checklist of approximately 100 pre-operational items with our Article 28 consultant, we have hired two of the three positions that will serve as our paid core team within our volunteer model.
Gloria Baez, our Volunteer Coordinator, has been hired and will work a half day a week while we work towards opening as an Article 28 facility in 2014.
Gloria has been a faithful member of New Life Fellowship since 2000, participating in small groups and serving as needed. Gloria, along with her husband Michael, have served with the health center since March of 2005 when we opened our free drop in clinic hours on Tuesday nights. After a career in banking, she currently works as a sales associate with Macy’s.
In her expanded role at the health center, Gloria will look to enhance our efforts of scheduling and communication with volunteers. Our volunteers remain the foundation to our staffing model that we proposed to NYS. Your continued support and willingness to regularly volunteer is critical and I encourage you to be receptive to Gloria in her efforts to expand and strengthen our volunteer schedule.
Kristin Moltz has been hired one day a week, outside of our current health center hours, and will serve as the Medical Administrator during this season of enhancing our policies and procedures for Article 28.
Kristin and her husband Steven have attended New Life Fellowship since May of 2001. Over the years, she has participated in several small groups and had volunteer leadership roles with several ministries. As a Physician Assistant, she has volunteered with the health center since June of 2005 and been a member of the health center Leadership Team since January of 2007.
After earning her Physician Assistant degree from Wake Forest University, Kristin earned a Master’s of Science in Healthcare Management from Rosalind Franklin University of Medical Sciences in Chicago. Having served in multiple roles and healthcare facilities in the Bronx, her education, experience, and gifts make her an ideal individual to coordinate the operational policies and procedures with our Article 28 consultants.
In particular, Kristin will be working to insure that all of our volunteer files are current and contain all of the required documents. You will begin receiving communications about our expanded requirements that, if you do not provide documents of your compliance, may prohibit you from volunteering.
Along with these two paid part-time roles, we will be hiring a part-time Medical Director. A job posting for this role will be circulated over the next month and we welcome qualified candidates to apply and encourage referrals from you, our volunteers.
Please welcome and give your full support to both Gloria and Kristin as they assume these expanded roles. We appreciate all of your support.
