This month we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge how thankful we are for each member of our team who faithfully serves our community. While there’s no arguing that doctors save lives every day (and we love our providers!), they don’t do it alone. Each person who works at Community Access Network has a unique role to play, and we’d like to give a shout-out to some of the unsung heroes of the healthcare system.
As a community health center, we provide more than just medical care for our patients and friends, which means our team is particularly diverse. We staff dozens of employees across our locations, and we appreciate every single one today and every day.
- CMA (Certified Medical Assistant): CMAs assist physicians with clinical and administrative tasks, including charting patient histories, measuring vital signs, and managing medical records. Our CMAs help our providers stay on track and save time during and between appointments.
- CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant): CNAs provide direct patient care in various healthcare settings, assisting with activities of daily living and monitoring patients’ well-being. At Community Access Network, you will likely have your vitals checked by one of our CNAs!
- Community Health Worker: Community health workers are essential to us. They provide support as our boots on the ground in LYH to educate citizens so we can all work together to experience better health outcomes.
- LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse): LPNs perform essential nursing tasks with the supervision of registered nurses or physicians, including administering medications and monitoring patient conditions.
- RN (Registered Nurse): Registered nurses have advanced training and are responsible for a wide range of patient care, from administering treatments to developing care plans and supervising other healthcare staff. Our RNs do so much more than just support our providers, and we’re grateful to have them onboard.
- Phlebotomist: Phlebotomists specialize in drawing blood from patients for various medical tests, ensuring accurate and safe specimen collection. By having phlebotomists on staff, patients don’t have to travel to separate locations to complete their routine blood work.
- Case Manager: Case managers coordinate patient care, assess healthcare needs, and help ensure patients receive appropriate services and support throughout their treatment and recovery. Our case managers allow us to treat patients beyond just their physical health.
- Scribe: Scribes assist healthcare providers by documenting patient encounters and medical information in real time, allowing physicians to focus on patient care. These notes also help ensure future interactions are well-informed.
- MOA (Medical Office Assistant): MOAs handle administrative tasks in medical offices, including scheduling appointments, managing patient records, and facilitating communication between patients and healthcare professionals. Our MOAs have a lot to juggle, and if you’ve ever been to one of our locations, you’ve likely seen them in action behind the front desk.
Each of our professionals plays a crucial role in the healthcare puzzle, collectively working together to provide patients with high-quality care. At Community Access Network, we want our patients to feel welcomed and valued. Whether it’s the person who first greets you at the front desk or it’s the team member checking your vitals — our staff members do everything they can to provide exceptional care.
