Review for Healthfinders Collaborative Inc, Northfield, MN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I volunteer as a clinic nurse at Healthfinders Collaborative. I come home from every clinic feeling so glad the organization is there to provide health care to people who truly need it. The organization itself is well-run and flexible. I feel as if my efforts are appreciated but we are all there to get the job done; there is not a lot of time wasted on unnecessary volunteer appreciation or superfluous training. I've enjoyed meeting new people through the organization and having the opportunity to help out my community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Patients leaving clinic with a diagnosis and treatment plan, medication or at the very least the knowledge of where to get help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more use of nurses who are well-suited to addressing the needs of this population (diabetes education, well child education, medication compliance etc).

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

a chance to do what I know how to do and help people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

doctors, nurses, translators and volunteer clinic secretaries.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

meet the healthcare needs of our uninsured neighbors.

Ways to make it better...

they knew how to use nurses better instead of being fairly physician-centric.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding and being able to meet the multitude of patient needs coming to every clinic.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I enjoy every minute I spend there.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
