Administrative Professionals Week – The People Behind Our Patients

AA_Week blog

After the medical emergency has happened, after the fear has turned to chaos, you are looking for help when you or a loved one is in need. You want a welcoming person that will treat you like family. You will meet that smiling, caring face when you enter Neighbors Emergency Center.

The first person to greet you will be one of our outstanding Administrative Assistants (AA), trained professionals that quickly assist you with seeing a board-certified physician, registration and insurance information.
As we celebrate Administrative Professionals Week, we are excited to introduce you to just a few of the amazing AAs that have chosen to be part of the Neighbors family.

“She greets everyone with a smile and goes above and beyond to make everyone that walks in our doors feel welcomed,” stated Neighbors Odessa Marketing Liaison Eve Gamboa. “She is always available to answer any questions and is a great asset to our Permian Basin Neighbors team.”
