I have talked about changes before and we continue to evolve and develop more. We will soon start on a second renovation to the original clinic building. We are moving and consolidating the Behavioral Health team into a single area. They will no longer be spread apart. I hope to have this work completed before the end of the summer.
In my almost first year here, my focus has been on improving management’s focus on the single most important part of the organization – our employees. I have focused on improving the employee benefits (still in process). I have been able to provide employees with annual retention bonuses, develop a leave donation program, set up a standardized pay raise process, and set up additional benefits such as short and long term disability. We are currently working with an outside vendor in organizational development.
We have some staffing changes I would like to share:
Louise Michael has been promoted to Lead Biller. Joining her on that team is Clarisse Jensen. Replacing Clarisse at the front desk in the Clinic is Vivian Glore.
Julie Thompson has joined us as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Janice Longley has also joined us as our new Medical Assistant.
We are currently recruiting for more professional positions, including a Nurse Practitioner, Physician and LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) and/or a LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist).
