I am a Multi-Site Manager, overseeing our offices in Six Corners, Edgewater, and Lincoln & Peterson, all in Illinois. My days are varied. Some days, for example, I spend time on the floor watching the work flow and analyzing the efficiency of the clinic. Other days, I may be in my office working on administrative tasks, such as scheduling, ordering supplies, and answering staff member inquiries.
I first interviewed for a “float” position for our Bolingbrook, Plainfield North, and Plainfield South locations and was offered the job in July 2016. During my interview, I mentioned I was getting my Master’s degree in Business Administration and that I was looking to grow with the company.
As I was finishing my new hire training for that position, a different full-time Patient Care Coordinator position opened up at the same location. The Clinic General Manager asked if I was interested in applying.
From the start, I fell in love with the busy pace and the welcoming, hard-working team, so I applied right after my shift was over.
One of our leaders, our Regional Operations Director, heard I was pursuing my MBA. PIC must have seen potential in me, because she began teaching me management skills in April 2017 and I came in an extra day a week to work with her. I applied for the Multi-Site Manager position for our Chicago North office and was offered the role in August 2017. I hope I can continue to grow with PIC—I really love working for PIC, and I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given.
I see our mission play out every single day. I watch the way our clinical staff efficiently access patient charts to get them ready to meet with a provider and listen to the way our staff speak to the patients, making them feel comfortable. I observe the way the providers quickly enter the room with brightness to further make the patient feel at ease. The way the team members work together to ensure our patients receive great care is remarkable. And when I hear patients express their gratefulness for helping them as they leave the clinic, I know we just provided care they can count on.
I’ve always appreciated the flexibility of the schedule and my coworkers at PIC. It makes life a little less stressful. I also appreciate how helpful all PIC employees are to one another. When I was a Patient Care Coordinator, I worked at nine of our clinics, and I always had such a positive experience at each of them. As most of us know, there are some differences among the clinics. Whenever I asked a question or didn’t know how things were done at that clinic, all of the other staff members were willing to help and were always very nice in doing so. It just shows that PIC employs some pretty great people.
If you enjoy working in an energetic environment with friendly people, PIC is the place for you!
