I started with Physicians Immediate Care almost two years ago. I was an outside candidate and initially hired as a Multi-Site Manager for Bradley, New Lenox, and Frankfort. After about six months, I was moved to Elgin, Hanover, and Glendale Heights. As of August 2021, I now have Algonquin, Elgin, and Hanover with the Multi-Site Manager restructure. I see my career growing with Physicians Immediate Care for many years to come.
Physicians Immediate Care's mission is "to provide remarkable care you can count on, when and where you need it." Can you tell us how you see that mission playing out each day at Physicians Immediate Care?
Physicians Immediate Care’s mission is to “provide remarkable care you can count on, when and where you need it.” Our mission plays out each and every day with every interaction. Whether it’s with our patients or our peers, our teams work together to provide a remarkable experience. Our team members have been our healthcare heroes through this pandemic, working long days with increased volumes while maintaining a positive attitude. They have shown our communities that we are there for them and are here to support them in any way we can.
What is something you appreciate about Physicians Immediate Care that people would not know unless they worked there?
One thing I appreciate about Physicians Immediate Care is their willingness to cross-train. If you have the motivation, Physicians Immediate Care will teach you. This practice allows people to join our team with many different backgrounds. The ability for a Patient Care Coordinator to train/transfer to a clinical position without going back to school is a huge plus for this organization. It shows our teams we are committed to their success just as much as they are.
What advice would you give to someone applying for a role at Physicians Immediate Care?
The best advice I could give to someone starting at Physicians Immediate would be to be your biggest advocate. There is a lot to learn in a small amount of time. Ask lots of questions, speak up when you are unsure, and practice makes perfect. Enjoy the ride!!
