Professional with expertise in this field
Very inept CEO, poor management, and extremely limited competencies of staff. The NJPCA has a new CEO who is inexperienced, and lacks knowledge and skills in management of community health centers. The non profit has a very limited capable staff, run by a divisive CEO. The NJPCA has deteriorated in quality of work and there is no staff member left with any knowledge or experience of health care policy or the challenging demands of primary health care for the disadvantaged. All capable staff with experience have either been fired or have left.
