John Herman, campus director of the South Bend Campus, presented the Distinguished Community Employer award to Mandy Fischer, human resources recruiter with Beacon Health System. The company has recently hired two full-time medical office assistant graduates: Lisa Eickleberry in the Memorial Medical Group (MMG) and Ashley McKinney in Centralized Scheduling at Navarre Place in South Bend. Emily Shine, a 2012 pharmacy technician graduate, was also hired in the hospital’s pharmacy after completing a year in retail pharmacy last year.
“The American National University education is excellent,” said Ms. Fischer. “The graduates come in as professionals, prepared to interview and prepared to do their job.” Lisa and Ashley have both hit the ground running and both thoroughly enjoy their positions. Emily has fit into the pharmacy environment smoothly as well.
Beacon Health System does have open positions which they will look to American National University to fill. Because their facilities require that most new hires have either certifications, experience, and/or both, American National University’s externships and the opportunity to additionally sit for various certifications prepare them well for the work force. “We look forward to bringing more qualified graduates on board and are recommending for our managers to hire from National,” said Ms. Fischer. Career center director Mary Mathews said, “The attributes of American National University graduates match well with Beacon’s values of enhancing the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the communities they serve as the provider of outstanding quality, superior value, and comprehensive health care services.” When asked if she would consider interviewing more American National University graduates, Ms. Fischer’s response without hesitation was, “absolutely”!
