Because everyone deserves great health care
Dr. Toyin Ajayi, our CEO and co-founder, has spent her whole career serving Medicaid patients. Here, she explains what we do, why we do what we do, and what compassionate care is all about.
Breaking the cycle
I saw firsthand the impact of a system where speed is rewarded, and patients are stereotyped. We started Cityblock because no one should have to feel ignored, rushed, or neglected. This is what we call compassionate care—seeing each member as a person, and recognizing that your time, stories and feelings matter.
Together, with your insurance
We’ve partnered with your insurance company, so our services are at no out-of-pocket cost to you. This means our services are already part of your coverage, so you won’t get a bill from us—ever.
We know everything affects your health
We’re here to provide medical and mental health services, as well as other things that might impact your health—be it access to safe housing, food security, help with addiction, or even childcare support.
We’re a just a phone call away
Your goals are our goals. We are your partners to better health. Together, we will create a care plan that addresses all your needs, and one that makes sense to you.
Because your stories matter
"I feel seen..."
“I would certainly recommend you guys to anybody because Cityblock has changed my life. I get to make my own choices, including my treatment plans, which is good. I feel stronger, more independent. I don't feel scared, I feel safe, and I feel like I'm worth something. I'm just so grateful, just so grateful.”
– Jackie, MA
"I feel safe..."
“You guys care about your patients, of course. I appreciate the professionalism. You care about me. You follow up. I feel safe—I feel safe that there's somebody out there looking out for me.”
– Andy, CT
"I feel heard..."
“Well, I already told and shared about Cityblock to many of my friends and family. You guys take the time, and let me decide for myself. You always call me back. I just want to let you know how wonderful my experience was.”
– Maria, NY
