Celebrating Success

Hillsdale Hospital will receive $76,781 by the Talent Investment Agency through the 2018 Skilled Trades Training Fund to upskill 77 current employees and hire 12 new employees. This award is unique in the capacity that it is focused on non-traditional skilled trades and professional trades in the healthcare industry, which isn’t what we typically think of when we talk about Skilled Trades.

The 77 current employees training plan consists of upgrading their current skillsets to include Revenue Integrity Boot Camp, Medicare Boot Camp, Trauma Nurse Core Training, Skilled Nursing Clinical Assessments and Certified Professional in Patient Safety.

The new hire training will cover 12 individuals who will transfer to a new clinic in Litchfield, MI. New hire positions for this clinic include 2 Nurse Practitioners, 1 Medical Doctor, 2 Office Coordinators, 5 Medical Assistance and 2 Billers. The new clinic will provide health care coverage at a remote location, which will lessen the use of the emergency room for primary care.

Congratulations to Hillsdale Hospital.
