  • Too Bad

    First Care Clinic is a good clinic and is a great resource for those in the community that could otherwise not afford health care. It’s just too bad that they used government funding for a navigator position to help fill an open position at FCC. I guess it saved them some money. Also, you would think that the management would have figured out by now that it is time for them to move on; give your employees new leaders and and chance to have better moral. What a joke when employees have nothing good to say about the leadership (or lack of) at the clinic. When employees don’t trust their supervisors then you can go ahead and kick the thought of dedicated employees right out the door!
