Consider Valley Baptist Medical Center Harlingen. Here’s Why

Hospitals don’t just care for the sick; they’re also an essential feature of the local economy. A medical center unites the most skilled specialists in the community toward a common goal, providing hundreds of jobs to people from a wide variety of fields. Valley Baptist Medical Center plays this role in Harlingen, Texas, making it a choice workplace for anyone seeking to break into the local Allied Health market. If you’re looking to work there, you should be aware that the hospital needs:

A Plethora of Positions
Like all health care facilities, the Valley Baptist Medical Center Harlingen must deal with high patient volumes, growing rates of chronic illness, and an aging population. As a result, there are always openings for medical professionals of all types. Medical assistants can provide care to people with minor injuries and ailments, speeding up the healing process and keeping beds empty. Billing and coding specialists ensure that everyone has the proper documentation to do their jobs well, while medical office specialists will keep the Center organized and efficient. Talented specialists in any of these fields have access not only to employment, but to job security, wage growth, and the opportunity to make a difference.

Essential Experience
While technical skills are certainly important, Valley Baptist Medical Center Harlingen places a premium on practical experience. Job applicants must submit a detailed list of all their past employers, which hiring managers will carefully vet. This does not mean that recent graduates of vocational medical programs cannot find work at Valley Baptist, but rather that the more experiential their education, the better. The best vocational medical programs are those that provide internships and externships at hospitals and other health care facilities. If you do well in a program like this, you will be a choice candidate for a job at the Center.

Patience with Patients
Medical assistants and other support staff are the primary representatives of Valley Baptist Medical Center Harlingen. They often make contact with patients before any other employees, which is why it is essential for them to be courteous, patient, and accommodating at all times. Applicants who treat everyone with respect, are good listeners and communicators, and remain calm in stressful situations will be the most competitive for a job at Valley Baptist. Due to both the demographics of Harlingen and the Center’s commitment to equal opportunity, Valley Baptist provides instruction in both English and Spanish. Employees who are fluent in both languages and willing to switch between them are thus preferred hires.

Other Considerations
Most positions at Valley Baptist require regular computer use, especially now that it has established online payment methods. The more experience you have working with computers, the more competitive you will be. Most support staff must be willing to work flexible hours and at a fast pace in order to keep up with all hospital duties. The Center strives to provide equal opportunities to all applicants and employees. Applicants with disabilities or veteran injuries can receive assistance and accommodation by contacting Human Resources. Valley Baptist Medical Center Harlingen is happy to hire talented candidates, but first you have to get the necessary qualifications. There are many schools that offer training in medical billing and coding, medical assistance, and other relevant fields, but not all provide the internships and other practical experience needed for success. The Southern Careers Institute offers the advice and resources you need to select the proper training program, paving the way for a successful career.

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
