Thank You, Medical Assistants!

MedAssistantsDayby LeAna Champion, Director of Nursing, Swope Health Services

Here’s a shout out to all the Medical Assistants at Swope Health Services (SHS), just in time for Medical Assistants Recognition Week, October 19-23, 2015.

At SHS, our 45 Medical Assistants, or MAs for short, work in all of our clinics performing clinical and administrative duties, working alongside physicians and nurses.

It’s likely you’ve encountered an MA arranging your lab work, documenting your medical history, drawing blood and generally, serving as a member of your health care team.

The MA position is projected as one of the fastest-growing occupations in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the American Association of Medical Assistants.

If you happen to be visiting any of our SHS clinics, this is a great time to give your MA a little appreciation! Or leave us a comment here – we love hearing from you.
